Somatic Dialogue and loving-conversation

Somatic Dialogue is a gentle practice of body and mind in movement. It uses a soft and mindful approach to the body and enables the mind to accompany the body in a loving way. Through guided dance improvisation and hands-on techniques, the participants can enter into an intimate dialogue with themselves and with the world surrounding them.

It opens a space in us, where we can enter into a deep listening, discover our inner universe, and get closer to our physical, emotional, sensual and poetic selves.

Muhabbet is a conversation in which love flows between the members holding the conversation.

Course content

In this workshop, we will practice the main movement principles of Somatic Dialogue from a silent place inside of us. We will not speak during the practice but then have time to verbalize our experiences.

The floor and the spine: we will always start the work with floorwork, precise guided improvisations will help the body to feel the floor and re- establish an active and sensual relationship with it. The improvisations will help to understand and feel our relationship to gravity. We will connect to our spine as an intelligent being that coordinates our flow.

My three centers: Head- Chest- Pelvis: We will explore how these body parts move, how they are connected to each other and what they can communicate to us.

Horizontal - In between - Vertical: After becoming good friends with the horizontal level, we will explore the middle level, or the In-between, where our relation to gravity changes, and where we dive into a new dynamic in movement. In the vertical level, we will explore our relationship to space, all the while staying connected to the floor through our feet.

You and I: introduction to Touch: Once we find the ways of dialoguing with ourselves, with our body parts, and with our floor through our weight, we will experience the intimacy of touch, and its powerful intelligence to connect us to something uniquely poetic in ourselves, through the interaction and dialogue with the ‘other’.

Course Instructor

Course teacher


(Assistant Instructor) is part of the Somatic Dialogue Facilitator Training. She has been dedicating herself to Somatic Dialogue for 3 years and is preparing to start working with small groups and/or individuals in Luzern. This is how she defines Somatic Dialogue: Somatic Dialogue uses movements, touch, breath and music to connect with our senses and the inner landscape of our body. It aims to give the time, space and environment to tune into the body and its need to feel well and be nourished. By being in the Soft, Slow and Small, we can gently create a relationship with the material body and step by step access the invisible parts of the body. The aim is Muhabbet: A conversation where love flows. This is an opportunity to feel ourselves from within, embrace all of ourselves, melt resistances, meet and merge with ourselves and feel united in body, mind and spirit.
