“Our task is not to create more images of light, but to release the light that is trapped within the darkness.” – C.G. Jung
Save the date! The next international Authentic Movement retreat in Tuscany, Italy will be June 24 – June 30, 2017.
This international retreat will explore the impactful role of embodied experience and the spiritual dimensions of the healing process. Alchemy’s basic elements can deepen our understanding of embodied transformation, experienced spontaneously through the practice of Authentic Movement. Dreams carry treasures that enhance the meaning and depth of this journey.
The Alchemists’ aim was to study nature and to learn from its profoundly regenerative capacities. So too, dreams reflect our inner landscape. This workshop revisits the work of dreams and Alchemy in relation to bodily experience in the process of healing and transformation through moving and witnessing practice, drawing elements from BodySoul Work, Jungian theory, embodied experience, dreaming, drawing, and writing.
Studio sessions will be supplemented by seminars focusing on questions arising from your personal explorations, as well as applications relevant to your creative and professional work.
This retreat is designed for those with a depth of experience in Authentic Movement, welcoming healing practitioners, clinicians, educators, artists, and those interested in growth and matters of the spirit.
Nestled in Tuscany’s beautiful rolling hills and vineyards, the private retreat center offers a peaceful, inspiring setting for self-renewal. Walking trails, delicious Tuscan cooking and a swimming pool enhance the experience.
In-depth experience in Authentic Movement is vital. Some background in dreamwork, expressive arts therapy, BodySoul work or other forms of embodied creative exploration that engage conscious attention is necessary, as well as a background in personal analysis/psychotherapy. A working knowledge of English is important in order to understand and participate in the intricacies of the work. (Unfortunately it is not feasible to work with a translator as participants come from many countries and linguistic backgrounds.)
