“You might see this when you don't know when to shut up. He wants to cover your mouth with his hand to get you to shut up, but that’s socially not correct so he projects his intentions over his own face.”

In Body Language from PechaKucha Night Johannesburg’s 12th volume, speaker Gaetan Schmid presents on the not quite secret language of the human body.  We create impressions in others minds of how we sit, stand and walk, he provides the guidebook to them. A very comical and informative presentation from what he has learnt in Theatre.

 This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, March 2nd, 2016.

The Human Body in Co-Creation

@ VOL 14 ON MAR 06, 2018

Lisette Templin believes that we are not alone in the Universe. When we open our heart to healing, we find ourselves on a path that allows us to experience (and thus use) the life force called Qi. To co-create with this divine life force, we need to fine-tune our bodies to use Qi. We wish to introduce you to the act of co-creating through a meditative art of moving and non-moving forms called Sheng Zhen Gong. Sheng Zhen means the sacred truth of unconditional love. When we regularly practice this meditative state of unconditional love, we move the human body in a way that heals current health issues and also helps prevent disease. Therefore, we experience health and also co-create life.
