What is Dance Movement Therapy?
Dance Movement therapy invites you to explore the healing conversation between your body, mind, and spirit. Dance Movement Therapy is a therapeutic process, and you don’t need a background in dance to attend these sessions. In this instance movement and dance give you an opportunity to express both conscious and unconscious feelings. Movement and dance are tools, providing a way for you to meet yourself authentically and compassionately. During the sessions you are guided to look to your body and its expression for wisdom, this is especially important when you might not have words to express how you are feeling. Dance Movement therapy can also support you in integrating new ways of seeing yourself and your worldview by exploring varied movement patterns and movement qualities. Dance Movement Therapy provides a safe space for you to express yourself with the intention of bringing you closer to a greater sense of well-being.
What is Somatic Awareness & Somatic Movement?
Somatic Awareness is mindful (intentional and focused) attention to the sensations in the body. Somatic Movement focuses on the internal experience of the movement rather than the external appearance or result of the movement. Somatic Awareness & Movement are therapeutic interventions that incorporates awareness, to gain information about the physical and emotional state with the intention of moving the participant towards a healing response.
Please note No dance or somatic awareness experience is needed to participate in this series. However you must have a genuine desire to reconnect to your body.
