“This is the workshop for the sensation from our body. and the observation how our body are.
We try to feel many parts of the body, also different speed of the body, and body sensation, through some different approach.
The body is not one.Many parts are alive and organizing each other at the same time. The body can suggest us something where we will go.Before moving, the sensation is there.The body is most close nature for us. We do not control our body, we listen, feel and receive the motivation of the body and trust them.We observe ourselves. We are a part of the nature and a part of the world.We are in between.” ( Hisako Horikawa)

If you are afraid of something or you are not sure
but you want to go further
do not worry, do not be afraid,

To open the door, you need the warm eyes
of each other and the courage for your body.
