- TITLE OF THE ACTIVITY: Slothing

- DETAILED CONTENT DESCRIPTION (150 words or more): 

The proposal of Slothing is an invitation to move as slowly as possible, in each moment during one hour. No further instructions, comments nor corrections will be made during the Slothing. Everyone in the studio will relate to and participate in the proposal according to their own needs, interests and desires. The proposal is to move as slowly as one can at the level of the floor, during one hour. There is potential for expansion of choices in a gentle, generous space. If one happens to fall asleep, that is possibly then what is needed. However, the proposal stands still in its aim- to move one's slowest at the level of the floor. If one happens to move faster than the previous slowness in the next moment, or at a different pace than someone else- then this is what is happening. The slownesses are most likely multiple in their trajectories. Slothing is an invitation of practicing slowness in a shared hour together.

Hej Mira i would love to try the proposal of yours, it seams quite close to what I'm interested in, in term of state of happening (meaning, sure we have intentions and scores all over around us but still by bringing the state of experiencing expending time notions i found my self closest to a happening way of operation. This would bring more focus that what ever appear to happen its more consciously and aware that is what the context in combination to the circumstances are emerging). Hope we found a way. best.
