Dancing the Body’s Wisdom: a Movement Therapy Training

Movement can be seen a bridge to the unconscious. The issues and mysteries with which we struggle are often reflected in how we move, both individually and in relationship to others. When movement is used as a metaphor, new insights emerge and we experience a deeper connection to our wisdom, creativity and spirituality.

This course is for people who:

Participants will have the opportunity to learn about various movement therapy techniques, both through direct experience and some theory. We will focus on Authentic Movement, Laban movement analysis and Process-Oriented movement, and also look at how other healing systems, dance and physical exercises can be used to create movement experiences. We will work in pairs as mover, witness and facilitator, and use small and large group process for integration. No previous movement or dance experience is necessary. Some previous personal experience of a body-centred therapy is recommended.

This workshop is offered at The Haven Institute on Gabriola Island. Please go to to find out about the schedule. It can also be offered in your home community. Please contact me if you are interested in bringing this workshop to your community.
