What is the body’s role and experience in healing and transformation, and how do movement, witnessing, and dreaming facilitate this process? These questions will guide our exploration in this summer’s Authentic Movement retreat for advanced practitioners. Elements from Jung’s theory, attachment work and neuroscience will enhance our explorations.
Dance has been a spirited and healing medium since the days of the ancient shamans. Natural movement is one of the most immediate ways to evoke consciousness in the cells - the light in dark matter - providing a way to listen to the body and open to the deeper healing energies of the Self. Join us in exploring the interpenetrating relationships between body, mind, psyche, and soul in this nourishing, vital journey of descent and return.
In-depth experience in Authentic Movement is vital. Some background in dreamwork, expressive arts therapy or other forms of embodied creative exploration that engage conscious attention is necessary, as well as a background in personal analysis/psychotherapy. A working knowledge of English is important in order tounderstand and participate in the intricacies of the work. (Unfortunately it is not feasible to work with a translator as participants come from many countries and linguistic backgrounds.)
