Adalisa Menghini – When Listening Comes Alive, somatic movement training for childcare and education professionals

Pedagogical Tools

How does listening work? What does it do for us? Listening is the ability to tune in and out when we want to. Our ears function as a double antenna, receiving messages from both the body and the environment. They help us define our notion of space and time, they help us control our balance and coordination, they guide our eyes when we read, our hands when we write or draw …

On the first day of this workshop by Adalisa Menghini, we will focus on the interconnection between listening to our body and listening with our bodies. On the second day, we will explore how we listen to time and space. And together we will tackle the question of how we can adapt these tools to work with children and youngsters.
