JORIS CAMELIN

*Spatial invitation

There is a space around us full of colors, shapes, sounds and of course, People.

There is a space in each of us for silence, poetry and beauty.

There is a beauty in daring to share who we really are and what we feel. In this courage lies the strength to heal ourselves - with the power to trust in our vulnerability.

There is also a beauty in allowing ourselves to be touched and moved by our surrounding.

With playfulness and surrendering, we dim out the noise of the thoughts by letting go in the power of our senses. Watching and listening takes down our mechanisms of fear. 

We bath ourselves and others in the game of giving and taking, the game of sharing.

We switch between inner and outer awareness and become more permeable to experience there is no two but only one. We step away from social conventions to softly fall into honesty, simplicity and humanity.
