Deep Focus

5-Day Residential Workshop with Adam Barley

Wed 1/12/2021 - Sun 5/12/2021, Mafra (Portugal)

If you've been involved in a somatic practice for a while,

if you know how to embody and express your feelings through movement,

if you’re looking for more depth in that research

then this may be for you!

This is the most advanced work Adam offers, in a format that is designed to radically open up your ability to work creatively and effectively with your personal material. We're aiming for a group of experienced movement/dance lovers and researchers who are willing to focus this work on their own life themes in a more specific way than is usually possible in a workshop setting. Being residential, we can work long hours whilst still having time to rest and integrate: although there will be times for moving together, the heart of our work will happen with each of you moving individually, with the support of myself and the group, taking your practice to a whole new level. As a result, you will weave a more personal and particular relationship between your own unique path and practice, radically freeing your potential in motion.

About Adam

Adam Barley (UK) is the founder of ZeroOne, a new creative movement practice. He began studying healing and meditation in the early '80s, training with Gabrielle Roth in the '90s to teach the 5Rhythms, and has built a world-wide reputation for powerfully transformative embodiment work.

"I'm a big cat hunter and a butterfly with a broken wing, with a teaching style that tends to both depth and vulnerability. I have faith in us human beings, and am passionately committed to being part of the evolutionary jump we are engaged in."

ZeroOne: a movement meditation practice for individual and collective evolution. Total commitment to the moment: listening is subtle, vision is deep, action is bold.Nothing is ever the same. Transformation is everywhere.
