Into the wild - Sprouting dreams
with Irma Pelikan (A)
and Grégory Chevalier (Fr/Hu)
Early spring in nature. Out of nothing sprouts appear. Trustful, vulnerable, vital.
In plants. In animals. In humanness.
Beneath our plans of fixing future and restraining the wild within to be a better me, there sprouts a dream of who is me in this very moment of now. Do I let this moment pass? Or do i put forth my hand, to touch, to see, to be?
Allowing the own vulnerability and juiciness to be authenticly experiencing reciprocity in relationship with nature. Prowling the own becoming in the mirror of nature. Cultivating inner wild landscapes
In natures vast embrace I approach in indigenous awareness the dream of my existence. I unfold the seed that resonates in me and let it … sprout.

"In AM i meet myself. The simple, real in me. All that I am I am. What I am becoming is moving me. With no need of words to grasp. I perceive myself. You see me. Therein I am. Each moment unwritten, me."

Wildness is our biological heritage, our animal body contains functional ways of expression and motion which abound power, life force and ancient wisdom. It reminds us of our common animate nature and connects us collectively, not only amongst humans but also amongst the wider community of animate beings. This deep interconnectedness with nature and its phenomenons can be a both sided love relation.
We can call upon the wild within, to empower us, to restore the courage and physical wisdom that are blunted by modern life.
By relating and gaining intimate experiences with nature, you widen the perception of yourself, from being an isolated human being to being part of this lively community: your ecological self.
You re-member yourself into this connectedness.
Authentic Movement explores the relationship between a mover and a witness, being seen and seeing. It is a subtle guidance to discover who we are in the present moment through the spontaneous movement of our bodies.
It provides a safe container to deepen the relationship to oneself, to release inhibitions and to relate authentically through movement and self expression. Each Authentic Movement sequence can deepen into a ritual to embody, step by step, the powers of your wildness within.
In nature, the personal human process is supported and mirrored honestly, with warmth of sun rays caressing your cheeks, with rotten wood in your hands ready to help you bring that unheard sound over your lips, or balancing on a fallen tree with closed eyes struggling and surrendering the adventure of not knowing the next step.

Irma Pelikan (AU)
Since 2010 leading training and facilitating personal development with a methodological background of nonviolent communication, deep ecology, authentic movement and process oriented psychology. My style is welcoming, playful and clear, allowing depth to unfold. As I spend countless hours outside in the forest at all times of the year, moving, dancing with and becoming nature, I know the healing aspect and the wonder of it.
Grégory Chevalier (Fr/Hu)
Somatic educator, dancer, nature lover.
My dance career started in 2006 mainly focusing on improvisation. Few years after I investigated Movement and touch based somatic methods.
My connection with nature changed completely when i started to live close to the forest in a caravane during 3 years.
Forest, trees and meadows became my main source of inspiration for dancing and for healing.
I have been teaching mainly in Budapest and internationnaly in Gremany, France, Holland, Italy, Switzerland, Geaorgia, Israel, Serbia, Romania, Austria.
I perceive Authentic Movement as a Now I co-lead the Moving Man training, weaving somatic movement together with psychotherapy. I am the choreographer of KIT ensemble, a Contact Improvisation dance company researching somatic as a concept base. I am the founder of Kontaktland festival and Contact Playflight.
