Activation Practices for Creative Consciousness
Atom Heart Heron alias Federica Buonsante is an international facilitator who researches, develops and transmits activation practices for human care and expansion.
With a diverse background encompassing a decade of research between Italy, China, India and Brazil, she now works with organisations, schools, communities and individuals to put Creativity at the Heart of Human Evolution. Since 2016 she has helped hundreds of people rediscover their inner essence and unlock their expressive potential, through movement, language and sound activations.
Her research focuses on the relationship between expression, ambience and creative awareness. She holds a PhD in Fine Arts from SAFA上海大学美术学院 (Shanghai Academy of Fine Arts) under the supervision of former president Wang Dawei. In 2021, Federica launched RONG PLACE ETS (www.rongplace.org), an immersive practice lab dedicated to enhancing a sense of belonging and spatial awareness through participatory art therapy. She is a Yoga Alliance certified teacher, Tai-chi, I-Ching, plant medicine and Vipassana practitioner.
The Organic Movement practice with Federica has been a beautiful way to reconnect with my body's innate intelligence, in connection with the nature around me. I notice an elevation in my consciousness, from being enmeshed with the people and voices around me (we were doing this in public) — what do they think of me, how do I look, etc. — to one of peace and sovereign creativity, where I felt free to move and express myself as I wished, elevating the space and giving permission to all to do the same. I very much enjoyed this practice and look forward to deepening on this path.
