Surviving the Unthinkable-How to Be Prepared for a Disaster
Dance Your Truth
A form of active meditation, this dance style blends psychology with the joy of free form movement. This is sensual intelligence; the epitome of somatic psychology. When we allow the body to move in new spontaneous ways, we unlock the patterns of performance and open the doors to new states of being as we create new brain grooves. These new states of being are sourced from our dancing into subconscious portions of the brain, and becoming aware of the emotions and thought patterns lurking in the limbic brain, the performance brain. The newfound awareness of these emotions helps us to observe the symbolic, archetypal language of this deep brain portion.
