Restore & Transformation Through Dance & Movement

Restore & Transformation Through Dance & Movement

Join us for an introduction to the elements of movement! All movement will be gentle and will be done standing. We will fulfill somatic cravings to meet your body exactly where it is to process from an instinctual level to release emotions, efforts, and tensions in surprising and refreshing ways. Facilitation will be given through the use of movement imagery, creative prompts, and inspired interactions designed to expand your creative repertoire in beautiful and interesting new directions. The traditions this group will draw from include Movement Efforts, Kestenberg Rhythms, 5-Rhythms Meditative Dance, Authentic Movement, and so much more! Week 1: FREE! This week we will incorporate the elements of water, flow, nurturing creativity and intuition Week 2: This week we incorporate the elements of air, change, decision and Week 3: This week we incorporate the elements of fire, breakthrough and transformation Week 4: This week we incorporate the elements of earth, grounding, steadiness and recovery Week 5: This week we incorporate the elements of spirit, stillness and integration We encourage you to bring a practice of non-judgment and permission to have fun to these classes as we will be focusing on creative movement as a form of controlled release by taking a broad overview of grouped themes. If you are someone who is looking to deepen your relationship with your body as a source of wisdom and insight, or if you are curious about Dance Movement Therapy as a form of spiritual inquiry this is a great group for you! We get to take a load off of your nervous system by processing things on a body level so you can feel better quicker and without the need for extensive verbal processing, journaling, or intellectualizing; although the facilitator is available to process any of these with you afterward. Please note that by joining in, participants are agreeing to listen to their bodies by going at their own pace, including utilizing the adaptations of movements offered to their physical limitations/needs during the session. All prompts and facilitation are also optional and participants may choose to simply observe for some activities or take a break for one song.

Elements of Universal Movement

Elements of Universal Movement

Welcome to Elements of Universal Movement! We'll be using integrated techniques from across the practices of Dance-Movement Therapy, 5-Rhythms Studies, Authentic Movement, and Mindfulness to study the building blocks of creative movement. We're here to dance with non-judgement, so please leave any ideas about choreography at the door. By participating in this group you are agreeing to: 1. Listen to your body and go at your own pace. Everything is optional and your facilitator will provide lots of adaptations to the invitations to move. 2. Be respectful of the community space and each other. No negative or disrespectful comments will be tolerated in the chat or on the mic when it's time to share. 3. Give it a try! You may be encountering a lot of new ideas and invitations, so if you wish to simply stop and observe for a moment that is just fine however we would encourage you to keep an open mind and try the activities on to see where they take you. 4. Please remember that this is a therapeutic group, not a substitute for therapy. The confidential nature of any group that meets on the internet is limited, however we encourage everyone to only share anything to the level they are comfortable sharing with a room full of kind strangers. If you do not do the sharing in this space, please refrain from doing any retelling outside of the space. 5. Thank you for being here. Please feel free to invite the special people in your life to the next one!

Ecstatic Dance-Movement Group

Ecstatic Dance-Movement Group

This is a perfect space for anyone who has ever wanted to try ecstatic dance but may have been too intimidated to join one in person. We'll be studying the main tenants of therapeutic, free-flowing, creative movement without judgements in the virtual setting, which is the perfect place to start. This is a great opportunity to dance past our own judgements and expectations, engage with our deeper levels of creative expression, and embrace movement as a natural form of connection to self and healing. Participation Guidelines from Ecstatic Dance International: Ecstatic Dance – 3 Simple Guidelines 1. We Dance without shoes (or: We Dance Barefoot) This allows us to connect more fully with the Ground (socks are OK) If you have a physical condition that you need dance shoes, then OK 2. We Dance without words (or: We Dance with Body Language) This makes it easier to be in a Meditative State No Verbal Instruction from the Facilitators No Talking from the Dancers 3. We Dance as We Are No Drugs/Alcohol, No Phones, No Camera/Video, No Scents, No Expectations, No Judgements, No Shoulds, No Oughts… Just Be Yourself; With Respect for Ourselves, the Space, and One Another.
