Anima Mundi in Transition: Cultural, Clinical & Professional Challenges
August 28, 2016
This pre-congress day-long workshop interweaves theoretical, experiential, cultural and clinical material through presentations, embodied explorations, and discussion. We will explore dance/movement as a form of active imagination, with special attention to the living body in analytic practice. By listening to the body to access and express the imagination, individuals may discover inner-directed movement as a way to bridge the realms of conscious and unconscious, body and psyche, instinct and spirit, affect and image, memory and emergence.
This workshop offers a structure within which participants can both have a practical experience of their own moving imagination as well as enrich their understanding of its application to verbal psychotherapeutic practice.
Morning and afternoon sessions include short papers, images, discussion, bodily awareness, reflection, movement experience, dialogue and exchange. Participants are invited to wear comfortable clothing and to bring a notebook and/or drawing materials to record their images and experiences.
This program is held as a Pre-Conference program at the IAAP International Congress in Kyoto, Japan. A passport is needed to travel to Japan (if coming from another country).
