MEMORY WALKS

In Memory Walks our project starts by simply asking people to offer to take one of us on a walk of their choosing. That is, you invite us.
It should be a favourite walk that you are familiar with or that holds significance for you. It needn’t belong and it doesn’t have to be a bushwalk, it could be in the town environment, but within The Blue Mountains Municipality.
Alan Schacher and WeiZen Ho are both performing artists based in Katoomba.
The purpose of this project is to investigate how the act of walking with another person in a familiar environment stirs up memories through bodily activation. These will include memories of other times and other places. We simply want to share those thoughts and memories.
The project will develop further to workshops and a community processional event, but only for those who wish to participate. Others may just stop at one walk without any obligation.

For more details and to offer to take us for a walk please, contact one of us :
Alan Schacher mobile: 0418 272 601, email: alanschacher@gmail.com
WeiZen Ho mobile : 0416 038 897 , email : weiofzen@gmail.com

Our project is part of a research residency titled What Persists, supported by Critical Path, a Choreographic Research Centre based in Sydney.
Memory Walks will explore walking in the different ways that it activates body memories.

Yoga Retreat Blue Mountains

Experiencing The Eastern Wisdoms

Depth psychology and much of our self-help and personal development systems take a western approach to self-discovery, but this is only half the equation.

Imagine how poorer the world would be without the Sufi poet Rumi, Confucius, Thích Nhất Hạnh and other epoch changing thinkers such as Indian philosopher Krishnamurti who said:

In oneself lies the whole world, and if you know how to look and learn, then the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either that key or the door to open, except yourself.

This retreat program takes you through a range of Eastern approaches for greater self-understanding and enlightenment.

You will undertake yoga classes, guided meditation, be introduced to Buddhism, learn about the chakras, experience a chakra balancing, delve into the five elements, explore your oriental astrology, Ayurveda type and more.

Our yoga and meditation retreat takes place in the bushland background of the Blue Mountains where healthy meals are provided in your package.
