Peace in Movement
– Embodied Wisdom –
I am Hanne Tjersland, and I am passionate about body wisdom and peace work.
I believe our bodies can teach us a lot about life and help us find alternative, creative ways to deal with the challenges we face as individuals, groups, communities, societies and humanity in a global world. For me, movement is peace work. Through (re)learning how to listen to our bodies, we can discover deep resources, wisdom and skills that can help us slowly create change in the world we live in.
This is the passion and hope that drives me.
In my work I use different embodied methods related to movement and creativity. Through these methods, I help individuals and groups enter into relationship with the resources, skills and creative powers they carry to help them explore and create new possibilities. It is a way of teaching that unfolds skills both for life and for peace through working with the body. The methods I use are mostly Open Floor and Theatre, but I am also trained as a Vinyasa Yoga teacher. I always adapt my exercises and ways of working to the specific topic, context and group I am working with. In this way I can create a flexible space where body wisdom can be explored, listened to and practiced in a creative, playful and useful manner.

You can also find all the upcoming dates I am teaching under Calendar.

With all the best wishes,
