Kalarippayattu

I hope to offer a sharing/tasting of the mother of martial arts, Kalarippayattu, where feminine and masculine meet, where the energy of nature flowing through our bodies connects us to others and our own stream. I am looking forward to guide the people through the ancient tradition, with its discipline and repetitive cycles, but also through the timelessness of it, because of embracing the totality of the body mind spirit paradigm.

Although being a martial art and making a nice strong warm up, we will end up instead of fighting (which can be fun like a dance with sticks or other), with a choreographed body prayer in gratituted towards life, represented by a specific altar in space, having a universal symbolism with it. This altar is known in Kalaris as "the Puttara" and the prayer: Puttara Vandanam.

It is through our incarnation that we can experience life, so it is the vehicle we should also cherish and maintain in order to fulfill our dharma or highest wishes in this life.

Mohini Attam
 

Mohini Attam is the classical dance style from Kerala, south India.

It embodies the pure feminine, yet holds in the power of the masculine, which are always balancing/supporting each other in Hindo cosmology.
IT is the dance of enchantment, where grace, devotion and gratitude fill the heart while the body does intricate story telling. The eyes move on the music, the fingers make mudras with beautiful energetic lines accompanying the sounds and story, the facial expression playfully changes, exaggerates the subject of the narration, the feet adorn the rhythm on earthy bells, the body moves like a blade of grass in the wind. 
We are nature, we come from nature and if we allow ourselves to get in tune we can find the inner bliss of oneness, with all. 
 
The stories narrated are from the classical Mahabharata, Ramayana, or other but finally its all about humankind, our hopes, fears, passions, madness, destruction, love, devotion. It seems as if we go far from our natural selves, to work on sophistication, preciseness, posture, expression, stories of fantastic superpowers, and then ...finally we realize that we meet ourselves in the exercise and understand even better our humankind.
 
Mohini Attam was danced in the temples as Devadasis, women priestesses devoted to the God of a temple, even married to it. They were held in high esteem, until the British arrived and forbid the practice. These dancer/priestesses were the only women who also had access to the hidden knowledge of the scriptures, vedas the hymns and were allowed to perform in public or for the worship of the Gods. 

It is a beautiful ancient tradition in which one learns to forget oneself to serve a beautiful art form, which is a gift of liberation for the ego. In this way humility and hard work allow our spirit to grow.

In this small introduction to Mohini Attam, i will lead you through a gentle warming up, a taste of the feet rhythms, facial expressions, 3 or 4 hand mudras. With this as a base, we can play together improvising on a beautiful indian music, allowing eachother to make, play our own stories with no pressure of remembering a sequence.
 
Finally its all about learning to be in the moment, fully, with awareness and joy for sharing.

Eva van der Zand

All our daily acts can become magical when we start researching and questioning the whole circle a person, a product or object went through before it came in touch with your body, hands, nose, mouth, tongue and ears. I create gatherings where reconnecting with each other, our bodies and the things we put in our bodies are central. What we put inside our bodies is an intimate act, it becomes part of us.

A main focus became tea. Meeting different tea ceremonies done by various tea  and co-creating with various tea traders and specialist gatherings to awaken our senses, enjoy and nourish our precious insides. I started a place exactly on the border between Netherlands and Germany where I host various gatherings for researching and experiencing.

For me the location and landscape always plays a big roll in the products that are eaten and the objects that are used. I take groups on walks into the landscape to interact with what is there. Like a small ceremony to connect to something that is bigger then just ourselves. What is that for you? Shall we invite the outer landscapes to enter our inner landscapes? Shall we share about the borders we experience when we interact with our inside and outside world? How can some borders become more solid and some borders more fluid?

I am looking forward to meet you on a special location to make time to slow down with a special group of people… where I invited you for a moment of embodied tea drinking …. and a walk where we allow to awaken our voices and bodies to open up in the landscape….www.evavanderzand.com and www.themoraine.org

Beeldende kunst geeft mij een weerspiegeling van mijn zijn, alle vruchten die het leven mij geven (zoete, zure, bittere en rotte) worden hierbij geoogst in visie. 
 
De beelden zijn vaak surrealistich waarbij het contrast tussen grenzen/vrijheid en connectie/loslaten vaak te zien is.
