The Richness of Time: Embodied Ecology & Fermentation with Matthew Nelson & Kendy Radasky

in conjunction with Fall Work Weekend

September 13, 2015 -
2:00pm to 6:00pm

Join us for this one-day workshop as part of Fall Work Weekend.

Drawing from permaculture, nutritional therapy, somatics, and dance, this workshop investigates the transformational nature of time. Fermentation, by design, increases the vitality of our food. We are living systems, and our movement in time can be similarly enlivening.

From the speed of a reflex to the intentionality of a pause, time in the body is revealed through phrasing. Dancing time, we will notice the patterns that drive us, and explore the possibilities of movement phrasing for greater resilience, efficiency, diversity, and ease.

In parallel, we will sample and learn to prepare fermented foods while investigating their healthful influence on our internal ecologies. Fermentation not only extends the life of our food, but also increases its nutrient density and flavor. With a compassionate awareness of the biome within our gut, we acknowledge that we are made up of living systems.

Embodied ecology is about relationship. We will weave the phrasing of our internal connectivity into the dynamism of timely interaction with others and place. We participate in living systems. This workshop is designed for all human beings, with any level of experience with movement, food preparation, and being alive.
