Worum es bei uns geht
Through TotalAttentionPractice we help develop and maintain a healthy relationship to ourselves and the world around us.
How well do you know yourself and your body? Are you ready for anything? Do you move fully aware and in the way you would like to? What games do you play? Do you have pervasive pain or difficulty? Can you be soft and follow without loosing structure? Can you apply strength in a controlled way? Can you create patterns and break them? Can you react spontaneously and with integrity? Can you balance out your structure even in difficult situations? What kind of resistance do you use to grow against? Is your movement nutrition balanced and healthy?
In Total Attention Practice we use the essential principles and ideas out of the established arts, sports and disciplines and move with the help of a number of new approaches step by step towards the treasures that are already waiting in you.
Rather than setting goals according to a sport or discipline, we start with the movement potential that humans have, develop integrated and transferable skills that give healthy specialized training the perfect foundation and help you to move freely and with intention.
All people and bodies are welcome. No special skills required.
We use experiences with movement, meditation, breathing, exposure to the elements, language, art, authentic expression and learning.
The practice is informed and inspired by many. Among the most notable are: Jiddu Krishnamurti, Joseph Bartz, Frank Forencich, Wim Hof, Fighting Monkey, Wildfitness, Thomas Couetdic, Tom Weksler, Katy Bowman, Steve Maxwell, Prof. Dr. Gerald Hüther and the TAP community.
Total Attention is the quality of mind with which we practice:
"When you see a tree or a bird, for example, to pay complete attention is not to say, "That is an oak," or, "That is a parrot," and walk by. In giving it a name you have already ceased to pay attention. Whereas, if you are wholly aware, totally attentive when you look at something, then you will find that a complete transformation takes place, and that total attention is the good. There is no other, and you cannot get total attention by practice. With practice you get concentration, that is, you build up walls of resistance, and within those walls of resistance is the concentrator, but that is not attention, it is exclusion."
J. Krishnamurti, The Book of Life
'I will not fear, Fear is the mind killer, the little death that proceeds totall obliteration. I will face my fear I will let it pass over and through me and when it has gone I will turn the inner eye and see its path and only I will remain!’
