Seekers of inner wisdom of all ages are welcome.
Close your eyes . . . Drop deeply into your body . . . Let yourself be moved . . .
Authentic Movement is a self directed practice, in which body wisdom is a source, and movement an avenue for self inquiry and expression. The form is simple and profound, involving inner-initiated movement and sound. With eyes closed, in the receptive presence of experienced witnesses, participants turn their attention inward and follow the impulse for movement that arises from within. There are no movements to learn, only yours to discover. After moving, there is time for reflection through journaling, drawing, and/or speaking to integrate your experience.
Bring a journal, water, wear comfortable clothing.
Facilitators: Laura Hayes-Meerman, BC-DMT, has been a dance movement therapist for over 20 years. She was trained through the Authentic Movement Institute in Berkeley, CA and has been facilitating Authentic Movement groups since 2000. Jane Blount, HHP, a dance artist/educator, and integrative somatic practitioner, has been practicing Authentic Movement since 2003. She was co-founder of Lower Left and has taught creative movement, contact improvisation, postmodern and contemporary dance throughout San Diego, the Midwest, and NYC. Jane and Laura bring deeply grounded intuitive wisdom to create warmth, safety, and sacredness in their Authentic Movement workshops.

Dear Friends & Colleagues,
I hope 2016 is off to a good start, with nourishment from the fertile
darkness and the growing light.
In the spirit of new life, here are some offerings I'd like to let you know
Embodied Alchemy: Authentic Movement, Neuroscience, & the Somatic Unconscious, with Tina Stromsted, Ph.D., BC-DMT
July 20, 2016
USABP 2016 Conference: Sexuality, Spirituality, and the Body: The Art & Science of Somatic Psychology, Providence, Rhode Island
Pre-conference day-long workshop
Alchemy—a forerunner of modern chemistry and medicine—is an ancient cross-cultural practice that integrated both material and spiritual elements and was rediscovered by C.G. Jung as he sought to understand the images in dreams.
Alchemy’s basic elements can deepen our understanding of embodied transformative processes, experienced spontaneously through Authentic Movement, a somatic, creative, meditative practice with roots in Jung’s 'active imagination' approach. Both practices bring awareness to what we least value—the somatic unconscious, known as ‘prima materia’ by the alchemists and as unconscious ‘shadow’ qualities by Jung. Such a map can help orient people in their therapeutic work, particularly when they are immersed in unconscious material that may cause feelings of anxiety, impatience, dissolution, or disembodiment.
In this workshop participants will have an opportunity to engage the Alchemical metaphor in relation to the embodied individuation process in healing and development. Moving and witnessing practice, theory, neuroscience, embodied experience, drawing and writing will enrich our experience.

Tending the Soul’s Call through Conscious Embodiment: Exploring Natural Movement Practices for Healing, with Tina Stromsted, Ph.D., BC-DMT
July 22, 2016
This workshop engages body, psyche and spirit through listening deeply to felt-sense and natural movement, addressing the body/psyche/soul split through embodied, creative healing practices.
Together, we will explore elements from Jung’s Depth psychology, Authentic Movement, Somatics, and contemporary neuroscience in a safe and supportive environment, developing a sense of being at home in the body. This can lead to a level of perception of self and other that evokes deep respect and empathy as one learns to respond to an inner guide and live more closely to the Soul’s Call.
When we ~ as body psychotherapists, health practitioners, educators, partners and/or parents ~ are sensitive to our bodies, sexuality, and a vital range of feelings, we can be increasingly present with others. Clinical examples, integrated with experiential work, will enrich our understanding of the applications of creative, embodied healing practices.

I am co-editing a book with Dr. Stephanie L. Brooke on the use of the creative therapies with bullying and aggression. It has been accepted for publication by Charles C. Thomas Publishers. I am looking for chapter proposals in art, play, dance, music, drama/psychodrama, poetry, animal-assisted, and other creative/expressive therapies. Bullying and aggression may include, but not limited to, workplace bullying, cyber-bullying, traditional face-to-face bullying, self-bullying, covert/hidden bullying, hostile aggression, or relational aggression. Chapters on supervision and special populations are of particular interest.
If you are interested in submitting a proposal please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "The Use of the Creative Therapies with Bullying and Aggressions" and I will respond to your email with the instructions/requirements for submitting a proposal. Please email me if you have any questions.
