Introduction to the Moving Cycle - 15 Hours
The Moving Cycle stresses the importance of trusting and awakening the body’s innate resources for healing and growth. These resources include high quality attention to and support of movement process that emerge when we focus on our bodies in a non-judgmental and largely non-verbal manner. The Moving Cycle method involves a shared authority and inter-subjectivity between a facilitator and a mover, and a trusting of the body’s ability to access implicit memories, engage in creative experimentation, and unravel the physical, emotional, and cognitive barriers to wellbeing. Sessions unfold in four phases, beginning with awareness and ending with action, and focus on developing conscious body motions that arise from within and tell a story that informs and transforms the client. This seminar will experientially introduce the participant to the Moving Cycle, so that the work can be experienced as well as understood. Activities will include guided experiments in developing high quality attention to ones current experience, finding the body’s impulses to act in precise ways, and supporting these movement sequences to literally ‘move’ us towards greater wellbeing.
