22nd CFdB International Capoeira Encounter 2016

It’s THAT time of the Capoeira Calendar AGAIN!

Batizado time :) THIS YEAR will be Mestre Val’s 22nd Batizado event, so let’s do this :) !!

Batizado Event time, is the Capoeira students’ opportunity to, re-commit to their Capoeira training, meet more of the Capoeira Community from the wider World, an opportunity to participate in the ritual of Grading & being recognised for the training & the things you have learned since last year! :)

For some, its a time to learn new things that they haven’t been exposed to, for others it’s a time to reconnect with old friends or old teachers, remembering what already has been and it’s also a time share your own wisdom and catch up on things we may have forgotten you know!

<<< STAY TUNED FOR PROGRAM UPDATES >>>

Celebrate the São Cosme e Sao Damião – SUNDAY 27 SEPT

Presented by: ABRISA

Hi Everyone!

THIS SUNDAY 27th from 1-4 pm we celebrate the São Cosme e Sao Damião day for our children and their families. The twin saints became known for curing people and animals without a charge for their service and became the representative saint for the pharmaceuticals and doctors. During this day, there will be a number of activities and entertainment for children of all backgrounds and age, we’ll also give out lollies as it is the tradition. It is expected that the parents will remain in attendance to supervise their children for the duration of the event.

Capoeira from 2-3pm

(WORKSHOP & LITTLE DEMO) Students must bring Uniform.

Neste evento celebramos o Dia de São Cosme e São Damião para nossas crianças e seus familiares. Os santos gêmeos ficaram conhecidos por curarem pessoas e animais sem cobrar nada pelo serviço e são considerados padroeiros dos farmacêuticos e médicos. Nesse dia, proporcionamos várias atividades e brincadeiras para criancas de todas as comunidades e idades. Também são distribuídas balinhas, como manda a tradição.  E expectative da ABRISA que os pais estarão presente para supervisionar seus filhos.

A Message from SistaNative (aka Cantora)

When my Master helps me & is by my side.. EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE :) <3

Creative life is a wonderous hectic supernatural storm that rages fulfillment & also wages war on the senses, the Heart and sometimes the community.. To create is to live life to the fullest.

No one person is an island.. my wish is that all beings feel the touch of inspiration to create & manifest something, even one thing and share it in their lifetime – however long or however short <3

Feeling blessed by the enthusiasm, dedication & follow through with Heart-felt, inspired action by my Creative Team <3

<3 The humility, ability to change, creative energy, dedication, inspiration, willpower, improvisational power, changing force, willingness, hard-working, endurance, intelligence, co-operative spirit, accessibility, resilience, sheer musical skill, artistic vision, commitment, sheer beauty & drive of my Capoeira Master is nothing short of sheer brilliance.

He is often embarrassed if you say these things directly to him, but others often don’t see those moments, when he fills a gap, or leaves a silence but is still listening, when he disappears but is still with you.. when he sees your plan, on the floor and all the tools and a big empty space.. when he understands what you intend but he sees that you are too busy to tend to it..

I like to celebrate those people & those acts of extreme kindness.. who do those things in the crevices of realistic time gone wild with flow.. there is a fortune to be experienced in service of self through service to others :)

I feel that most people experience this.. we are rarely celebrated absolutely for the small invisible tasks of doing & sometimes not-doing, for others.

The best things in life are intangible: love, humour, honesty, trust, leadership, enthusiasm, beauty, cleverness, etc..

I cannot count the infinite ways that Creative life reminds me of the grand organised design of all things – when Love & inspiration is present, living is truly a Divine experience.
