Every cell in our body has memory. Our body is a literal encyclopaedia of our whole life. When we move we create body memory. Tensions and contractions are ways the body communicates sub-conscious blockages. repeating certain movements will evoke past events or metaphorical meaning. When we move consciously and with deep awareness we can begin to recognise the flow of imagery and emotions that arise during certain movements. Each movement is lived differently by each individual person.
Our brains like to create habitual ways of looking at situations in life. We may approach the same difficulty in the same manner each time. Through movement, writing, drawing and the communication module we activate different areas of the brain to be able to piece the puzzle together and find resources for healing.
Our body and our subconscious knows what it needs, but often we get in our own way. My role as a facilitator is to give tools and direction to help you liberate yourself from subconscious blockages that keep you from living life to it’s utmost capacity.
The tools I use in this therapy come Tamalpa Life Art Process
Here is a description of the tools we will use that comes from their web site Tamalpa Life Art process
The Body: We live in and through our bodies. The body contains and reveals our entire life experience. It is through the body that our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels become connected. It is through the body that we can come to know ourselves and the world. Expression, healing, change, transformation are acts of embodiment. What wisdom do our bodies hold?
Movement: is the body’s primary language. It is in movement that we express our personality, our conditioning and can discover new resources. Movement channels feeling and evokes feeling. Movement takes us inward to our interior experiences and outward to express our experiences in space and with others. As our movement repertoire enlarges, so does our emotional and imaginal repertoire. All of life is movement, everything in our universe moves. Everyone moves, If we say that all movement is like a dance and that everyone is a dancer, what are the dances that our souls call for?
Voice/Sound: giving voice to our experience, creating the sounds to accompany our dances, the sound of an image or feeling, the voice of the group in harmony and disharmony. If our body could speak what would it say, if our drawings inspired songs what would we sing?
Drawing: challenges us to grapple with and shape our images. Drawings hold the memory of movements and feelings after they have vanished from time and space. Drawings are gifts from our imagination. What are the colors, shapes, textures and symbols of our imagination? What will be drawn out?
Dialogue: finding the words, speaking them, writing them, and bringing aesthetics back into our language. As we find and shape our words, we become storytellers and poets of our individual and collective stories. What to say, how to say it, what narratives do we create?
Reflection: What is my art telling me? What does your art evoke in me? How is it connected to my life? What am I learning? What would I like to do differently? What’s in the way? What are the available resources? How can I, and how can we live artfully in our relations and in our communities?
