Healing Dance® I constitutes a paradigm shift for the student of aquatic bodywork. It sees the body as at home in the water, hydrodynamic in its form and healing in the flow of movement. It understands the psyche as needing not only nurture and closeness, but space, freedom and acceptance of self-expression, as well. More than anything else, Healing Dance I is the wave. In addition to seven full-body waves the sequence encompasses various circles, figure eights and releases, all balanced by the stillness of positional sanctuaries and woven together with flowing transitions. The study of body mechanics extends beyond the familiar Horse and Warrior Stances to include different walking patterns that allow traveling across the pool. Healing Dance principles are discussed on land and practiced in the water. These include moving by example, creative imbalance, flow, the rhythmic field, invisible transitions and dosing movement. Finally, you are introduced to Relating and Mirroring, the goal of all technical study, the art of sensitively accompanying the movement impulses and unwinding of receivers. A written and photo manual are provided and an MP4 of the sequence is made available.
This is a core course in the Practitioner Certification. It is 50 hours in length over 6 days and serves as a prerequisite to Healing Dance II.
Who is this seminar for?
Prerequisite: Introduction to Healing Dance, WATSU I, AQUATERNATIVES or other aquatic experience.
Healing dance has been refined through the simple joy of movement, to discover its full therapeutic potential.
Healing dance has many varied aspects, all based on the healing power of movement. The practitioner establishes an empathic connection with the recipient, and is trained to reflect all emerging kinetic impulses. Like an orchestra conductor, he establishes a rhythmic field at the beginning of the session through breath, movement and state of mind. At all times, he seeks the rhythm of consciousness that enables the recipient to feel the psychological reverberations of movement within his being. Movement is applied as medicine and carefully measured, interspersed with restful pauses in quiet sanctuaries, to allow integration to take full effect. The practitioner makes the recipient of Healing Dance dance, who in turn experiences grace and beauty, sometimes leading to deeper emotional sensations.
