Use your body to explore and transform the personal limits we experience as we co-create.
Our experience using this technique:
As part of a Participatory Action Research (PAR) training Recrear hosted in Barcelona (April 2019), we were asking ourselves how to exist as part of an alive and healthy system. We designed this activity to answer the research question, ‘What are my limits to co-creation?’.
We reflected that co-creating requires emotional attention and, most likely, working through some discomfort. Yet, understanding and sharing our experiences of discomfort cognitively can be very hard. For this reason, to explore our question we wanted to pull from the embodiment techniques that we had learnt during the course. We came up with this exercise to allow people to express and transform complex feelings, thoughts, and ideas through the intelligence of the body, without needing to define them first.

Benefits and Challenges
Recrear goes grassroots all the way.
That’s why we need your help to meet our basic operational costs and to support our growing pool of volunteers around the world.
Thanks for your support.
