Angela Alves

Movement Session in English and German spoken language

Crip Meditation is a horizontal movement session based on visualization. Since meditation most often is to be practiced in sitting positions, Angela Alves Crip Meditations are designed for lying bodies. All Crips are invited to stay in bed or extend their bodies on the floor or attend the session from the outside world laying in the grass or somewhere else you feel comfortable. Participants can expect a soft start, a supportive surrounding and a horizontal dance session through visualization in order to move brains and calm down nervous systems.

Safer Spaces
This safer spaces addresses disabled participants. The public sessions are for disabled, nondisabled, deaf and hearing participants alike.
If you live with nondisabled privileges, we ask you to respect that this event is for disabled people only. We acknowledge that not all people we aim to welcome in this space will identify with the terms “disabled” but might use other terms (such as chronically ill, neurodiverse, mad etc.). In these Safer Spaces, we aim to create spaces for empowerment and to alleviate the pressure to assimilate to the nondisabled majority.
