Embodied Practice & Touch Drawing


Embodied Practice & Touch Drawing

Swish, scratch, dab, brush...body parts (fingers? toes?) move on paper, guided by an inner prompting. Touch Drawing is a natural portal of discovery & expression for somatic experience. My embodied practice is Authentic Movement. What is yours?

Hey- very nice to see that there is such a group. I have just joined a workshop in TD in Amsterdam and was so interested because I am a mover/bodyworker myself and found the approach of TD so intriguiging because so body oriented. Next to my experience as a dancer and performer, in which I also practiced Authentic Movement and Contemplative Dance, I am also a trained Feldenkrais Practioner and have encountered other Bodywork Techniques during the course of time. The most fascinatng movement practice has been Butho Dance for most of the time as the dancer dwells deeply into an image and moves through it contemplatively....very similar to TD. Unfortuntely I don't live "around the corner" but in Europe, but whenever you might be here get in contact with me. Franziska

Touch Drawing is such an embodied practice and I am tying in my limited knowledge of Iyengar Yoga. does anyone have any ideas on larger surfaces that could be inked up?

I move, I laugh, muscles urging the bubbles of sound to rise.

I push my fingertips harder onto the thin paper,it rips and paint collects beneath my nails as they slide downward, splitting paper, ragged, tearing down and stop.

Moving with paper and paint and hands and torso. Hips sway, head drops down. Later my neck is soar.

This site is a great idea.I saw it on Jan Thompson's page. By the way, Authentic Movement is also my practice. Thanks. Mary
