We trust art as a transforming and healing medium; as a tool to unite the body, heart and brain. We work so that the individual acquires awareness for the application, harmony and use of these three vital body areas.
We advocate, in an innovative way, the training of people in their broadest profiles and combine the expressive arts, movement, dance and education for whatever their professional and personal purpose may be.
We focus on developing a concept of completeness from the individual and the group (treating each group and each individual as unique and genuine) promoting presence, security and availability for the flow of emotions, getting closer to the essence of each person. It is through art (in any of the disciplines) that the reality of our lives is accessed and it is art that is in charge of channeling our lives towards well-being.
The Lavan method interconnects the body and its movement with wisdom and creative force. Memory is impregnated in the body and cells since life began in the womb and it is movement that frees us from the accumulated load and unnecessary body tensions that reduce vitality and add resistance. We understand the body as a container of stories from our life and lives that have preceded us and that, in different ways, patterns, movements and gestures etc continue to accompany us; sometimes constructively and sometimes in a limiting way. In our work, we do a mapping to give artistic and/or verbal expression to our limitations so that they can be released and create access to our authentic essence.
Each of our students acquires a body and anatomical awareness from a micro level (each of the parts that make up our body: skin, tissues, bones, muscles, expression …) to a macro level (What does our body express? What message does it give to the world? What fears and insecurities does it hold?). Complementarily, we use the metaphor as a resource for knowledge and extension of our own vision, opening ourselves to a look not yet considered.
Working with creative writing in the form of a diary from the beginning of the process (either individual or group, depending on the training) helps to observe the process with perspective and evolution.
Development of listening and active response of the student, as well as other important factors when interacting socially. Learning to elaborate returns from complete levels of the human being (I see, feel, imagine, listen, it reaches me, etc.) as well as the use of silence to accompany us in communication, before or after a sentence. Including this perspective helps to gain insight into conflict resolution, social skills management, and communication in general.
