FEATURES OF THIS NEWLY DESIGNED COURSE
The centerpiece of this course will be learning to dance through and with the SEER process for soul retrieval. This is a core Movement Medicine practice—a strong and supportive process to release old structures that may be taking up a lot of energy and life force. Often these old ways of being were originally put in place for very good reason but are no longer needed. This is an opportunity to honor their service, release what is ready to be released and create space to call back The Gold of the Soul and dream in more resonant and soulful ways of being and living in the world. You will learn how to connect with your own Inner Shaman and use this process at your own pace, in a place of resource, safety, and the choice to practice applying these sacred tools to your day-to-day life.
• Create your own unique vision board with dreams and intentions for 2021.
• Make a Vision Bundle as a creative way to focus your intentions for the year ahead.
• Learn the Movement Medicine Body-Heart-Mind Incantations guided exercise grounded in neuroscience, that you can use in your daily life for anchoring in the medicine of what resources you.
• Discover your own unique practical, achievable, repeatable, clear small steps to create real change.
• Dance in ceremony to deepen our relationship with the Sacred in your life.
• Learn how to create simple techniques to improve your capacity to integrate the experiences of the dance in your day-to-day life and to increase the success of goal orientation and completion.
• Learn a simple Movement Medicine Practice for moving through and shaking off stuck energy.
• Create your own simple PARC goals (practical, achievable, repeatable and clear actions ) to improve your capacity to create long lasting change.
• Learn the work of the ‘Conflicting Commitments’ exercise to get underneath the reasons for sabotaging your goals.
“Movement Medicine is a dance practice that will reconnect you to the wisdom of living from the heart and will deepen your connection to yourself, your creativity and integrity as well as enliven your relationship with life on all levels. It has roots in shamanic and nature-based wisdom as well as contemporary therapeutic pathways such as Gestalt and latest developments in Neuroscience”.
