El Haddawi: mystical dimensions of body-art

Sunday, 19th - Friday, 24th of February 2023

We are pleased to announce the 22nd El Haddawi International Winter School. It will take place at the island convent "Abtei Frauenwörth, Fraueninsel, Chiemsee" in Bavaria, Germany from Sunday 19th to Friday 24th of February 2023.

We are very happy that our Winter School can take place again on the island after two years pause.

Movement is the basis of life, everything that lives is in motion.

In movement we experience our being embedded in creation and nature. Beyond visible outer movement we also experience inner emotions. These are expressions of spiritual existence.

Early in the history of mankind the arts of movement developed too. We can find dancing figures in prehistorical cave paintings. Movement art can be a signpost to the secrets of movement and silence.

To dedicate oneself to one of the various movement arts like dance, martial arts or also meditation, is like studying the landscape of existence and the road towards its center.

During this Winter School we will have the opportunity to dive into the arts of movement and to discover a key to deeper layers of being while practising them.

El Haddawi is a school for Movement Concept®, dance, martial arts, and body work. It works at the interface between body work, performing arts, and spirituality. With methods based on work with the body, incorporating meditation and humour we approach mystic experience and understanding. In addition to workshops taught by Ingo Taleb Rashid and guest lecturers, the following activities are planned: an opening ceremony, various interactive lectures, and opportunities for music and dance improvisation.

We are pleased to be able to offer a unique festival concept which El Haddawi has introduced many years ago. Both the participants and the invited teachers will take part in all workshops together throughout the Winter School. This creates a very personal and inspiring atmosphere which enhances the exchange between teachers and students.
