READING THE BODY, OBSERVING PERCEPTION (50 hours)
- Focus- Understanding what the Body is Saying
Through movement expression of tissues/fluids, students will learn principles of witnessing movement as a fluid re-mapping of the body, an ever-shifting process as an extension of a planetary process. Students deepen their capacity to embody and to observe in others, micro-movements and interpenetrating layers of fluid/cells/tissues. The groundwork is laid for a more sophisticated perspective of body and mind as being plastic in relation to context. Exploration in physical, perceptual and conceptual phenomena become bio-creative events that interconnect with the unified field. Students will be introduced to thinking/feeling concepts that are important to somatic psychology, learning to assess basic elements of psychophysical processing and emotional expression, what it means to be self-referential and self-responsible.
Practicum- Students will present a class and receive feedback first from peers and then teachers.
