Inspirees Nirvana - Personal Grow Workshop (Guangzhou & Beijing)

Dance/Movement Therapy Personal Growth Workshop

“If you can walk, you can dance; if you can breathe you can move.” (Zimbabwe proverb)

Why take this workshop?

From the moment we are born we moved and it is through our bodies and movement that we express the wholeness of who we are.  To reclaim our bodies and to honor their many daily dances is to rediscover our selves as active beings, capable of making a difference in our world. In this way, we can more fully and authentically live our lives embrace deep sources of wisdom and creativity.

What is the focus of this workshop?

In this personal growth workshop, we will use dance and movement in conjunction with other forms of creative expression to explore aspects of who we are as embodied being in relationship to ourselves and others.The workshop will use individual and group structures,with music andin silence, to explore and deepen personal awareness and understanding. Specific class experiences will be based on Laban Movement Analysis, Kinesiology/ Somatics, as well as approaches used by Chace (group work, mirroring), Whitehouse (Authentic Movement), Bartenieff (Laban Movement Analysis)and others.  The primary focus of this workshop will be on the participants’ individual experiences and personal growth discoveries, rather than on didactic or theoretical information.

Who should take this workshop?

This workshop is for students currently enrolled in any of Inspiree’s Dance/Movement Therapy training programs, as well as any one interested in enrolling in an Inspiree’s program, as well as psychotherapists, dancers and anyone interested in expanding their capacity for personal expression, communication and awareness.  For DMT students, embodied self-awareness is an essential component of dance/movement therapy training. The class does not require any previous movement experiences.

ADTA Alternate Route Program - Pre-course (Shanghai, August)

ADTA Alternate Route Program - Pre-course

Shanghai, August 15-16, 2015

Clinical Training

Shanghai, August 17, 2015

This pre-course will present the fundamental concepts of Dance/Movement Therapy, from its roots in ancient dance rituals to contemporary clinical practice. Dance/Movement Therapy is based on the fact that the mind and body are in a constant reciprocal relationship, and that movement is a powerful source forself-awareness, expression, and communication.

As a first step in studying dance/movement therapy, we must become aware of our embodied self, our own movement preferences and patterns, and our own “personal dance”. Through both structured and unstructured movement improvisation activities, students will have an opportunity for personal exploration and the development of self-awareness and self-expression on a body level. Dance/movement therapy also ignites the creative process. The act of engaging in dance and movement invites the healing properties of creativity, playfulness, and imagination. Students will be introduced to the use of imagery as it emerges through moving solo and with others.

The movement improvisational activities will be based on the foundational work of early dance/movement therapists Marian Chace and Mary Whitehouse. Both of these dance therapists emerged from the world of dance,and they developed different but highly effective approaches to the psychotherapeutic use of dance and movement. These approaches remain essential to the training and practice of dance/movement therapists today. Movement improvisation, didactic presentation, writing, and visual art will be utilized to explore the core concepts of each approach.

Objectives:

  1. Gain a beginning understanding of the theory and practice of dance/movement therapy as developed by early practitioners
  2. Increase self-awareness on a body level
  3. Experience movement exploration and improvisation as a path to a deeper connection with oneself, and as a path to communicate and connect with others
  4. Understand the requirements and the structure of the Inspirees DMT program

Inspirees Creative Movement Program - Pre-course Open for Application

The Inspirees Creative Movement program presents a method for teaching Creative Movement (CM) to children, adults and senior citizens in a variety of contexts.. It also offers a path for self development for individuals specifically seeking personal growth.  Creative Movement is a discipline with the objective of discovering a deeper listening of the body and its potential for creative expression through improvisation. A greater consciousness of one’s body/mind self stimulates:   a more authentic  and creative way of being, a greater sense of self-esteem, a better relationship with the world and with others, a major internal equilibrium and a way of managing daily stress.

The Program of Creative Movement is taught, after the pre-course in four sections through experiential thematic seminars articulated to respond to the needs of the students. The student will receive a certificate after each seminar.  Theoretical study is part of the training and material will be distributed  and suggested to the students.  A written paper is required after the first, and third sections of the training. A personal creative project brought to conclusion will be presented as part of the fourth seminar. 

Nanjing Pre-course, Nov. 8-9, 2014

 CM Pre-course

Goals

  1. To develop perception, sensibility and awareness of the kinaesthetic and creative self, your unique way of moving, both independently and in group.
  2. To experience/explore various modes of improvisation(structured and non-structured) and modes of play (with the self and in group)
  3. To trace and play with color and form through the use of visual arts  ( body outline) to aid and enrich reflection on one’s experience.

Objectives

  1. To gain understanding of what it means “to be in the art of presence”. To experience how presence effects creativity in the here and now.
  2. To begin to develop attention and presence while experimenting with unstructured and structured improvisation and play both individually and in group.
  3. To expand and deepen one’s trust in the personal capacity to use the body and expressivity
  4. Practice synergy between diverse forms of art, movement, visual art, poetry.

Fundamental tenants of Creative Movement practice:

- The body is the axis, the fulcrum of our creative expression for whatever language dance, art, music or drama.  Activating the body is fundamental for sensory motor perception and for activating the mind.  When the mind and body are moving in synchrony it can have a transformational impact in the individual.

- In every human being there exists the possibility to live creatively.

- Creative potential can be facilitated only in a non–judgemental atmosphere

 

The experiential work and beginning skills learned this CM pre-course can be useful for:

Ÿ   psychologists, psychotherapists

Ÿ   people in the helping professions

Ÿ   teachers in different levels of education

Ÿ   physical rehabilitation therapists .

Ÿ   professional dancers and dance teachers

  • As a specific resource for dancer and dance teachers:

The course will initiate new modes of experiencing how the body produces movement, how it may meet and move in space.  Knowledge of a technical form can at times be restrictive when dancers search for different ways of expression or to create choreography. Movement improvisation, play and grounding principles found in mediation forms can stimulate and amplify the dancer’s repetoire and become a skill for dance teachers to appropriately use in class. Experiences in discovering and using image, symbol and metaphor will enrich how the dancer moves and how the dance teacher indicates and instructs the students. Competition prevalent among students within a technique class is extenuated by the course teacher modelling an empathetic attitude within a non judgemental environment. This permits dancers to let go into personal exploration without the fear of being judged.

  • As a specific resource for psychologists and psychotherapists.

 The course will access different ways to know one’s bodily self. It fosters self- knowledge from the “bottom - up” from body to mind instead of the direction of the cognitive function from mind to body or “top-“down”. Opening bodily perception both statically and in movement aids in developing kinaesthetic, emotional and cognitive awareness. This ability is useful in contacting and deepening one’s empathetic capacity and perceiving somatic counter transference while interacting with clients/patients. The beginning improvisation experiences are designed to free up conditioned responses which may impede playfulness a fundamental creative passage to health. Improvisation and play part of developmental health at any age are to be encouraged in children, be re-found as an adult and as a senior citizen.
