Personal development through the performing arts


With the Shell Release Method® and Conscious Gest®

With Anna Guasch

A weekly proposal of body and automatic writing, body and unconscious, body and creativity.

The purpose of the Shell Release Method® (MLC®), created by Marie Lise Labonté, is to free us from physical and/or psychic and/or emotional rigidities, to return to the body its own spontaneous movement. Her body proposal is the result of Carl Gustav Jung’s unconscious work, Wilhelm Reich’s shell theory and Thérèse Bertherat’s antigymnasia® body work. Regular practice is a path to explore self-knowledge and connect with our authenticity, while toning and making our body more flexible.

Gest Conscient®, created by Àngels Massagué, also provides awareness through anatomy in movement. This consciousness is closely linked to the health, vitality and fullness with which we unfold ourselves every day.

Automatic writing is a technique that was born within the framework of the surrealist movement. André Breton defined it as ‘a dictate of thought, in the absence of any control exercised by reason and outside of any aesthetic or moral concern‘. In this workshop we will use it as a tool to drain creative expression. So each session becomes a dialogue between the conscious and the unconscious, between the body and the mind, movement and creativity, between the external and internal world.

“When the body is flexible, the mind relaxes. When the mind relaxes, creativity happens.” –Anna Guasch–.

  • Gentle movements (based on antigymnasia® by Thérèse Bertherat) that everyone can do, regardless of age or physical condition.
  • Opening movements, followed by stretching and harmonizing movements.
  • Use of different materials such as tennis balls, sticks, foam balls and pillows to perceive the body as a whole.
  • Through the voice of the companion, the movement is allowed to be experienced at the pace that best suits each person, internalizing it, listening to it.
  • Contribution of a dialogue with the unconscious through the sensations, perceptions and images that emanate from the body.
  • Automatic writing.
  • Time to conceptualize and share.
