Training Process

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
When I let go of what I have, 
I receive what I need.”

― Tao Te Ching

CAMINOCREATIVO training process is an offer to walk inside the mystery of what is shifting and emerging in our reality and in ourselves in these times of rapid change. It is not a dogma, nor a religion, nor a method, not a school. It is a process: a set of experiences which are ever changing, and at the same time contained inside concrete frames with archetypal foundation, with the purpose of facilitating EVOLUTION.


NEW TIMES AND TERRITORIES REQUIRE ALTERNATIVE TOOLS

In the early 2000's through a series of travels and shamanic experiences it became clear for nomad researcher Nicolas Cambas that humanity was heading towards a dead-end road. Through decades of research and experimentation outside of the academic-institutional established tracks, syncretistic and original forms and structures to work with groups of people and catalyze evolutive processes began to emerge . These forms are impermanent, involve artistic playfulness and shamanic deepness,  and privilege the present moment and what seeks to emerge from the collective unconscious. In times of paradigm transformation this process enables physical and psychological healing as well as expansion in multiple levels of the collective and the Self.

The background of this process lays down on 3 main branches:
 

CREATIVE-EXPERIENTIAL

Through expressive arts (theatre, music, dance and movement, clowning, improvisation in various formats).

SHAMANIC AND PSYCHOLOGICAL

Inspired and empowered in shamanic traditions from diverse ancient cultures and structured as well around humanistic and esoteric western knowledge and therapeutic praxis, like Jungian, transpersonal and process-oriented psychology.

SCIENTIFIC ASPECT

Supported by the Neotenic biological evolutionary theory, scientific frame sustaining the evidence of the transformative effect of playfulness and creativity in humans and primates, as well as in the development of consciousness and evolution of life.

This process-oriented structure consists
on 5 collective on-site experiences

Step 1.
Unlearn to Be
Creativity in life

Techniques


Some of the techniques we explore Meditation, bodywork, somatics, movement in diverse formats, contact improvisation, clowning, viewpoints and instant composition.

Structure

5 sessions of 3 hours throughout 3 days


Who can do it? 

Anyone, no skills required, just a human heart beating.

All workshops in this program are pedagogical, creative and therapeutic. They happen inside protected environments, embracing emotions and vulnerability with healing purposes.


The CAMINOCREATIVO field is a space of deep personal and collective work, involving light and shadow. Shamanic frames combined with art and creativity allow emerging evolutive patterns from the collective unconscious to unfold. Through structures which privilege improvisation and the present moment, every workshop is a different experience within a common and clear frame, in this case:  Unlearn to Be ​

Step 1.

This workshop consists in unfolding extra-ordinary collective states through a balanced mixture of radical playfulness and subtle awareness, opening the way to inhabiting the creative level of existence: life as a creative process.


“Unlearn to Be” combines ancestral knowledge from non-western cultures with creative frames coming from body-based contemporary expressive arts. It’s an exercise of letting go of what we (think we) know so that we can authentically Be, in relationship to ourselves and the others.
The psychological and shamanic background is based in the recognition and awakening of the trickster archetype, a deep aspect of the human psyche celebrated as a sacred mixture of light and shadow in shamanic cultures and historically repressed in western society. This archetype has the power to subvert the established order of things enabling creativity and transformation for an evolutive purpose.

The structure of the workshop combines practical and intellectual content, directed to detect, understand and transform the collectively inherited programs and unacknowledged traumas that unconsciously run our lives; into a more enjoyable, powerful and pristine version of ourselves as individuals and as a collective.

The Creative Path  

is no other than the Tao.

In a world where the old paradigms are falling and the new ones are not clear yet, holding on to any permanent truth is shutting down from the massive transformation that is going on around and inside ourselves. In this context, any authentic pedagogy preparing us for actual and future times shall act as a bridge towards evolution, contemplating impermanence, presence and mystery as higher sources of attaining such purpose.

 

The basic active principle in which CAMINOCREATIVO is based is that our lost personal and collective capacity to be in tune with the universe can be trained, exalted and functionally recovered. Art, expression and creativity are medicines that connect retune and expand us.
