“On the Wolf’s Trail” Session 1 – Sonic Dive
June 17th | 4 pm
Ritual conducted by Mónica Alquimia
Limited to 20 places.
Mónica Alquimia will lead a sonic meditation ritual that invites participants to cross the linearity of space-time, proposing reconnection with the primordial habitats of the deep ocean. This ritual begins with breath, and will guide us through a trance state, supported by instruments, towards other sensory and imagetic dimensions, inscribed in the textures of the organic, transgenerational, and transpersonal body. This session, developed in conversation with Margarida Mendes, aims to deepen acoustic and corporal states of consciousness, by accessing alternative modes of perception that expand through a shared aquatic subconscious.
This proposal involves an opening to the dissolution of the senses and is aimed at those who are comfortable to enter states of corporeal trance.
