Movement Medicine

Movement Medicine is a dance based practice that weaves together the wisdom of many different approaches and traditions including dance, shamanism and psychotherapy. Through engaging body, heart and mind together in movement, we are able to access a different kind of intelligence from the one we generally use- a more holistic and connected understanding of the world and ourselves. In the dance, we re-member ourselves as creative, choiceful and interconnected beings. The tools and practices of Movement Medicine enable us to be and move with all that life has to offer.  Movement Medicine is a journey of discovery and an enquiry into how to be fully alive: Who are we and what is our purpose? How can we live our fullest potential and create the life we dream of?

Take a look at this video to get a taste of what this practice has to offer.

"The shape of each soul is different. There is a secret destiny for each person. We need to return within, to find again the dream that lies at the hearth of the soul. We need to feel the dream with the wonder of a child approaching a threshold of discovery. When we rediscover our childlike nature, we enter into a world of gentle possibility. Consequently we will find ourselves more frequently at that place, at the place of ease, delight, and celebration. The false burdens fall away. We come into rhythm with our selves. Our clay shape learns to walk beautifully on this magnificent earth."

(From ‘Anam Cara’ by John O' Donohue)
