The theme of these workshops is embryology, specifically remembering the first steps of our journey, creating our support structures and environment to developing an efficient body plan. The workshops alternate between Authentic Movement and Body-Mind Centering® Formats. The Authentic Movement Workshops in this series engage participants in the ritual and protocol of the mindfulness, movement practice of AM incorporating the roles of mover and witness. The embryology theme will gently guide the participants into the felt sense of the body recognizing memorable stages of existence. The Body-Mind Centering® Workshops in this series present more indepth explorations of specific stages of embryology. Lecture, drawings, pictures, and videos will offer greater understanding and a foundation to explore these stages in somatic movement experiences. Somatic explorations are a vital aspect of these workshops. "Somatics", coined by Thomas Hanna, values the body as the physical manifestation of the individual in all her/his wholeness. As the body changes, the mind changes and the energy changes. Somatic explorations involve moving, feeling, and sensing as well as hands-on partner work. This encourages physical expression to unfold in any number of ways promoting healing and enhanced efficiency and well-being. If you practice mind-body disciplines, are a mover, are curious about your body or have a professional practice in physical therapy, psychology, massage, dance or yoga, these workshops are for you.
Individual Workshops are on Sliding Scale: $55 to $95.
