EN/ As we are calibrating our physical distancing and our social senses, I offer to guide you to notice how you feel in your body and to drop off in the earth's layers and feel connected with the support of the space. An invitation to seize the moment to land and navigate into the streams of your relational-self; creating spaciousness to explore the layers of your embodiment.
FR/Alors que nous sommes en train de calibrer notre éloignement physique et nos sens sociaux, je vous propose de vous guider pour remarquer comment vous sentez le vivant de votre corps et pour vous déposez dans les couches terrestres tout en vous connectant avec le support de l'espace. Une invitation à saisir le moment présent et à naviguer les courants de votre moi relationnel; créant de l'espace pour explorer les épaisseurs de votre encorporation.

Amélie has recently completed a Master Research's Degree at the INSPE / UPEC, National Institute of Professorship and Education in Paris, University. The work focused on the engineering and training practices on artistic creation and develops an enactive pedagogy, linking research in neuroscience and psychology showing the crucial role of the moving body and emotions in learning, and renews the mutual questioning between arts and sciences. It is the first professional diploma in France to offer trans-disciplinary training for educators, artists, and mediators. With her peer collaborator Sabrina Benhamouche, their research intent to understand how our self-narratives and our mental constructs can be modulated through cognitive rest and somatic movement explorations. Their work focuses on creating enactive tools for group training to enlarge body awareness in regards on our unconscious/conscious historical and interpersonal trauma. The practical aspect of the research intends to create forms of social "epoché" where embodied listening and speech can be experienced to engage ourselves in a dynamic of mutual enrichment. Their inquiries approach the studies and practices on somatic education, post-colonialism/decoloniality, and micro-phenomenology.
