A 5 day intensive therapeutic retreat to address : trauma, mood, chronic pain, addictions, life transitions, loss, and personal growth.
Beyond Movement Therapeutic Retreats are unlike any other retreat. This retreat provides experiential somatic practices with breath and movement to relax and open sensations in the body. The physical body is the container for the psyche/self. Through utilizing the the anatomical through awareness and visualization, the different aspects of the self will be focussed on. This includes the past split off or wounded part of the self; the functioning parts of the self in everyday life and the private relationship we have with ourselves through the ways we cope, self talk and suppression of ourselves.
Expressive arts such as free associative writing, masks and image making will be used to help express and integrate the body-centered experiences. Finding our creative parts of self through imagination, play and expression allows for symbolization, the meaning of our psyche.
