Contemplative Dance/Authentic Movement Workshops
“I think of this work as Active Imagination through movement. I experience sensations, feelings, memories, images and the numinous in a process that is more satisfying and challenging to me than any other practice I know. Through this embodiment, the psyche unfolds in its own organic way, at its own pace. This is a spiritual practice which helps integrate body and soul, personal and archetypal, inner and outer, the conscious and the unconscious both in myself and in the people with whom I work. It is a way of creating a more poetic and artful holding of life’s difficulties and life’s bounty.” — Alton
