Dance Therapy and Focusing

Gendlin's Experiential Focusing is a bodily-centered therapy process which gives you access to a deep level of knowing, leading to inner transformation you can feel immediately and apply to your life. While most approaches to therapy are based on the assumption that it is good to be more "in touch" with yourself, Focusing teaches you how to do this. Focusing is a highly-regarded and well-researched process that has been shown to correlate with positive life change, enhanced self-esteem, and the experience of integration and wholeness. This workshop will explore the relationship from the dimension of Focusing to the world of movement and dance improvisation. Identify felt senses (as distinct from emotions) in your body. Enable the felt sense to communicate its message to you, from the edge of your awareness. Use dance movement improvisation and felt sensing together for healing. Eligible for ADTA CEUs.
