Workshop

Exploring the Mind in the Body: Enhancing Kinaesthetic Resonance 

Who is this short course for?

This short course is open to those new to the discipline of working with the embodied mind, and those familiar with this way of working in counselling/psychotherapy. Professionals in mental health services together with those wishing to experience this way of working for their own personal development will also benefit from the course.

What does the course cover?

In Authentic Movement our experience of one another develops within a ‘kinaesthetic resonance’. There is a rhythmic dance arising out of the experience which resonates in our bodies in the present moment and beyond it. This kinaesthetic resonance enhances our being in the ‘here-and-now’ and can inform our future possibilities. 

  • You will be introduced to the notion of kinaesthetic resonance as manifested in the practice of Authentic Movement.
  • You will learn to engage with this direct experience which goes beyond words and concepts through your own and others authentic bodily movement.
  • Mindful movement, in gesture and posture, sometimes with closed eyes will be core to the programme.
  • The roles of witness and mover will be explored in dyads, triads and a group to include the ‘four phases of processing’.

The course will honour a non-judgemental ethos and provide both witnessing and movement experiences, verbal and symbolic reflective processes.

Inspirees Nirvana——Colorful Childhood, Flourish with Self Workshop (Wuhan)

Inspirees Nirvana——Colorful Childhood, Flourish with Self Workshop

How do Step into the Colorful World of your Child

The first goal of the workshop to be achieved on the first day is to give children a profound experience of being in creative, supportive and encouraging environment. Several modalities will be used to develop children creativity and self-confidence like story-telling combined with miming and acting, new movement vocabulary exploration, creative dance based on given imagery, and drawing. All the modalities aim to stimulate imagination and to help children to express their own ideas in a playful way through body movement, communication in group, teamwork, drawing etc.

The second goal is to involve parents into the creative process on the second day and to introduce them to their children’s world. The parents will be engaged in the creative process to understand it from their child prospective. This will help to build a strong connection between generations and to let parents and children be closer to each other. Parents will learn how to go down on their child level, also what kind of games they can use at home to help their kids to open up and gain more confidence, creativity and self-esteem.

Structure: 2 days of 1.5 hour class each (with 2 breaks) for a group of 6-8 children (parents are welcomed to participate on the second day, one parent or both for each child); 3 groups are available for signing up.

Clothes requirements: a pair of pants and a T-shirt suitable for movement and dancing

Props list: small ball, crayons and paper, yoga mats, speakers

Instructor:Uliana Dzyuba (Russia)

Uliana is from Vladivostok, which is Far Eastern part of Russia, since 2011 she's been living in Beijing, China. Currently she work with kids as Helen O’Grady drama teacher. Helen O’Grady drama is rather a system of comprehensive children development through drama than a school of “professional” drama skills. Her current job helped me to develop some skills of working with kids aged from 3 to 15 years old. Also she teach her classes of her own program of creative development at Starlight Dance Center (Beijing), which is a combination of storytelling, drama skills and creative movement aiming to help kids to develop in a creative and confident way.  

By the age of 17 Uliana started to learn modern and contemporary dance, and also got some Yoga and Capoeira movement experience. In 2010 she heard about dance therapy for the first time, then she decided to put her mind to learning more about body-focused awareness in psychotherapy. She took several practical courses in dance therapy and body psychotherapy, and got a professional retraining in counseling psychology. Uliana came to Beijing to study dance therapy by the Alternate Route of American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA) at Inspirees Institute of Creative Arts Therapy. She attended workshops of a famous Japanese Butoh Dance named Katsura Kan and participated in a performance. And she also started to practice parkour and functional training with a leader of “The Parkour Commune”, a Beijing parkour crew to understand natural body movement.

Time: October 4-5, 2014

Venue: Mary Busha, Wuhan




ADTA Alternate Route Program - Pre-course (Chengdu)

ADTA Alternate Route Program - Pre-course

Chengdu, October 24-26, 2014

This course is limited to 20 participants.

 

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

Chinese edition of Dance Movement Therapy: A Healing Art has been published!

"Dancing shoes replace the therapist's couch. The underlying premise of dance movement therapy is, as Dr. Levy describes it, 'that body movement reflects inner emotional states and that changes in movement behavior can lead to changes in the psyche, thus promoting health and growth.' If you give...[people] room to move, their story can unfold... The trauma is in their bodies and movement helps them...express it." —— Jane E. Brody, The New York Times, Oct. 18, 1995

It's back! Fran Levy's book has been sorely missed. This Valuable book, Now considered a classis, "the definitive texi," has been thoroughly updated and expanded. —— Ellisa Queyquep White, ADTR, CMA

Download Foreword by Joan Wittig and Dr. Tony Zhou

Recommendations

"This book is a training "must" for those interested in understanding the early roots of the field of dance/movement therapy and the expansion and development of the practice with various treatment populations. It is a thrill that Levy's book is now available in Chinese as the field is beginning its own development in China. There is no doubt this will be an invaluable resource for students, educators, and other professionals."  - Christina Devereaux, PhD, LCAT, LMHC, BC-DMT

"What is dance/movement therapy?   This comprehensive  book gives in detail it's origins in the U.S., the growth of the field through its pioneers and its development with various populations.   I have used the original  book as a text in graduate school and am pleased to have  this updated version available which includes the beginning of dance/movement therapy training in countries other than in the U.S.   I believe this book will prove to be an extremely valuable contribution to the growth of dance/movement therapy in China." - Ellisa Queyquep White, ADTR, CMA, Charter member and past president, American Dance Therapy Association

“When I asked my teachers which book you were going to recommend your students, the answer is very clear:  the book of Fran Levy. Yes indeed is THE book that can lead you to and to get the knowledge who you need to know about DMT. As one of the pioneers BC-DMT in China I recommend this book to everyone interested in DMT.  It covers all kinds of creativities and it is quite easy to read.” – Zvika Frank, BC-DMT
