Open World - Sunday Initiates Only
What is Open World?
Open World is an embodied philosophy created by Atlas Talisman. It is a space to witness, explore and experiment with the full range of human experience. The primary intention of this work is to authentically have an experience, rather than to perform or entertain. It is a space and a community where the full spectrum of aliveness is welcome and met.
In "scene work", we step into the arena, using STATE, STORY and ART to find the truest moments. Honouring beauty, ritual, creative impulse and our personal and collective edges.
We believe that this work is necessary to rehabilitate the innocence, wilderness and beauty of our collective humanity.
Initiates Classes on Sundays are for those who have had previous experience of Open World. These classes are designed to go deeper into scene work and demand a more resilient and robust capacity. Themes of aggression, power and violence are often explored here, with the intention to meet these expressions of humanity in an intentional way.
PLEASE NOTE: Open World is not a therapeutic healing modality or a self help workshop. The facilitators and team are as much in the scenes as anybody else. We aim to create a space where everyone is empowered to do, or not do, what is true for them. We do not recommend Open World scene work for anybody who is in active trauma, or who is sensitive to strong forms of expression.
