Awareness through the Body (ATB), aims to assist individuals in developing the capacity for attention, concentration and relaxation, in refining the senses and in cultivating the ability to notice what one is experiencing.
ATB provide tools and a space to enhance introspection so that we may become aware of the different planes that form our being and have the possibility to enter in contact with our wider sense of self.
Join us in our ATB Retreat facilitated by Amir and assisted by Tamar. Read on for more details.
ATB has been created and implemented in Auroville schools since 1992, by Aloka Marti and Joan Sala, based on their personal experience following the spiritual path of integral yoga and the idea of integral education. ATB is one of them, that has been developed from a close interaction with children for more than 20 years. Joan and Aloka have published a book, that has been translated into 5 languages. The programme has proven to be popular with students, and effective in attaining objectives, such as enhancing concentration, developing awareness, refining the senses, understanding and managing emotions, developing a sense of collaboration with others, and establishing a contact with the observer within.
The exercises provide ways for individuals to discover and explore the body, and through the body to awaken the consciousness of the entire being. All the activities, within their particular focus, work towards that goal.
Some exercises and games have been incorporated from a wide variety of disciplines; they are creative and often fun. To learn more about Awareness Through the Body, visit the ATB Website
Amir will facilitate this Retreat. He left Israel in 2000 with his wife Tamar on a journey to India, leaving behind life & own business. After 3 years of study and exposure to diverse disciplines aimed at expanding consciousness, they joined Auroville, where years of research gave birth to the ATB Program in Auroville schools.
Amir was trained as an ATB facilitator under the guidance of Aloka Marti and Joan Sala. He sees ATB as a tool that aspires to facilitate a process of inner growth, to allow a chain of changes to unfold and manifest for a better life, and a better planet.” Today, Amir is focused on reaching out with this discipline into wider India, Israel and South Africa.
