Opening the Doors to the Profound Spaces of the Heart & Mind
A one-day workshop with Peter Deno
Deeper within ourselves exist profound spaces where all differences disappear, where there is peace and unity. The focus of this workshop is help us reach those inspiring spaces, to make contact with the best aspirations of the human being, to connect with the Sacred dimension.
We will experience a progressive journey inwards, using psycho-physical exercises, spontaneous movement and guided experiences. At times with music, at times in silence, working individually and as a group.
Listening to our bodies we can experience a new way of perceiving ourselves and relating to others and feeling connected with the whole. It will be a day of exploration and discovery, returning to daily life with new tools. This workshop is designed for people of all ages and backgrounds and does not require any special training or preparation. The comprehensions will depend on the willingness to be open to new experiences within a group environment.
For all ages and backgrounds, no special training or preparation required. Wear loose clothing.
What people have said about the workshop:
“As we progressed I moved inward and made contact with a part of myself I seldom realize is there. From this interior space I let go of my inhibitions and communicated what my body had long sought to express."
“For the first time I felt reconciled with my body and felt the internal beauty of the human being”
“I felt a deep trust in myself and in others which was totally new to me.”
“The relationship between the Sacred and the body became clear to me, not as an idea, but as an experience.”

About the instructor: Peter Deno, a Dutch choreographer and teacher created a method to experience the Sacred through movement in the late 70’s. Peter developed this method inspired by the teachings of Silo and the book “The Inner Look,” also known as Silo’s Message. He has been touring Europe, South America and Mexico with this workshop and is now making a special visit to the United States where he will be giving the workshop only twice — in New York City and Upstate New York. Peter has found that regardless of the culture or the background, the essential experience is the same, “people discover a bridge to a profound internal space, where the inspiration, beauty and harmony that exists in each one may express itself.”
