The aim and vision through this practice is to create a transformational environment for true connection and healing in which we can unite all people from different cultures, ethnicities, backgrounds, gender and ages. An important practice in CBC is the focus we bring on all the human senses, on healing modalities as well as on energy work through Qigong and Yoga philosophies. This integration will allow us to genuinely connect from the heart within the self, with an-other, with the environment as well as with nature beyond the means of physical contact. There is an incentive of nurturing communication beyond language and normal means, thus to enhance the metaphysical aspects of the human organism.”

Integrating CBC Practice / Information into your own teachings:

 If you wish to integrate any information and practices from CBC to enhance your own work, we kindly ask you to mention where the exercises and tools you use come from. Some exercises and tools do come from different modalities and practices such as Contact Improvisation, Authentic Movement, Passing Through, Yoga, Qi Gong and other, however, the way you were taught them is through the unique practice, experience and knowledge of Vangelis Legakis over many years of teaching research and development. We will be grateful when you acknowledge and respect the practice and the creator as well as the hard work over many years Vangelis has put into this practice to share and teach it to the world.

It is very important for every CBC facilitator and teacher to understand the importance of this policy and follow our suggestions so we can all support each other. Failure to follow the copyright policy may result in rescission of certification and discontinuing the right to teach under CBC facilitator.

Safety Notes

CBC sessions can be facilitated by anybody who finished the FTC program level 1 and beyond. However, that has been said, we would like to emphasize that CBC is a practice that has been created over years of practice and research, which aims to heal and alleviate physical, mental, emotional and spiritual disharmony; it is a practice to connect people and bring integration, love and unity to all people. Therefore, facilitating a CBC event with right intention with right environment is one of the important key factors, which you need to consider when you become a facilitator.

As you might have experienced, CBC Practice can be a very powerful practice physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. It is a practice that work very closely to the heart and mind as well as a physical body, therefore we would like to advise you to pay an extra attention to the followings, but not limited to:

  • Venue
  • Environment (Can it create a safe and clean space for the participants?)
  • Size (Is the size big enough for all the participants?)
  • Floor (Is it suitable for dancing?)
  • Participant’s body condition
  • Any special body, mental, emotion condition you need to be aware of? (i.e. High blood pressure, heart condition, pregnancy, chronic disease, injuries). Do ask all participants at the beginning of the session so as to have a general overview of their current condition, thus you will be more aware how to facilitate as well as will help all participants to be responsible for each other when they practice.

*Please note that Vangelis Legakis and Unity Space shall not be liable for any damages, injuries, or problems that occur during the event that is facilitated by any CBC Facilitator. For your greater protection, we advise you to have your own insurance that can cover you for such event, as well as you can have a document of consent that states “whatever happens during this session the participant takes full responsibility”.

For any enquires about copyright policy, or if you notice unauthorized use or misuse of elements of the CBC practice, send us an email to cbc@unityspace.org

We are very much looking forward to co-creating and spread the CBC practice to the world and contribute to a greater future for all.
