Reflections of the Body in Film, Art, Poetry, and Music: Structure and Contact
June 17-19, 2016
Friday, 1:00 pm-8:00 pm
Saturday, 9:30 am-5:00 pm
Sunday, 9:00 am-12:00
How do you experience yourself as you watch an actor move across the screen in a film, see a sculpture, hear the turn of a phrase in poetry, or listen to a piece of jazz? Often we see and hear parts of ourselves as we engage in these media.
In this workshop we will utilize Gestalt awareness and several creative media to explore parts of ourselves that deeply resonate with art, film, poetry, and music.
We will reflect upon our own embodiment; what has been introjected as ideal, or how we "should be", how we are attracted and repulsed by certain images, notes, phrases, and forms, and experience and express our own sacred forms of embodiment as lively and authentic.
Participants are invited to bring forms of expression (instruments, art materials, writing materials).
This workshop not only increases the capacity of the intervener (clinician, coach, consultant), but can be applied to work in clinical and organizational settings.
This workshop is designed for all levels of mental health professionals. Others are welcome.
