Join us for a workshop to deepen your cultural curiosity & self-knowledge.
Presenters will use dance/movement therapy tools, authentic movement, & physical storytelling to focus on individual cultural identities as well as shared group experiences
1:00-2:00pm Authentic Movement warm up led by Virginia Hill, LPC, CRC, R-DMT. Virginia will facilitate an authentic movement experience which will help participants explore the parts of themselves that hold differing attitudes or beliefs towards their own culture & other cultures, both the parts of self that believe your culture is right, & the parts of self that do not.
2:00-4:00pm Physical Storytelling Experience led by Sarah Arnett. MA, NCC, BC-DMT, LMBT. Sarah will guide participants in warm ups that introduce the technique of Storytelling, discussing & demonstrating how this valuable tool can be used in your work. Attendees will learn how Physical Storytelling allows personal stories to be shared verbally & then retold through simple shared movements. The movement process generates empathy, new perspective on the stories of our lives, & the conversation that follows often brings insights, shared meaning & connections. This process allows us to “step into” someone’s experience which is a powerful way to create new understandings.
4:00-5:00pm Collaborative Movement Experience led by Susan Saenger, BC-DMT, LPC & Kyla Koontz, BC-DMT. Susan and Kyla will facilitate a group movement experience with the goal of fostering connection & common ground amidst our differing cultures, beliefs & experiences.
