Moving the Self: Creative Body Expression
When we move/dance, we enjoy and experience the entire process, from beginning to end, with presence. There is no beginning and end, there is no past or future when we dance, there is only an intention to start the dance, and an intention to stop it… The dance is continuous, ever moving, ever changing, and we decide to tap into it and out of it. The external dance is a mirroring of our internal dance. One move leads to the other, and the space that fills the shapes we create is the dance.
Movement, whether symbolic or pre-symbolic, is a way into the soul's transformation. In this way spirit and matter are held at the same time, embracing whatever might be wanting to become. The body holds the opposites within the creative impulse which can lead to… transformation… whereby ego has to surrender to the life-force´s movement within.” Helen Payne 2005
In this short journey, the facilitator will hold the space for you and guide you through a process of creative body movement to invite whatever is alive in you on that specific day, at that specific moment, to surface… to be freely expressed.
We will begin by “embodying” our bodies, by connecting with our bodies, through our bodies. Then, we will notice how our mind perceives this experience, without judging it, to observe whichever thoughts arise at that moment. And finally, we will allow our thoughts to take a back seat, and give the lead to our Self, to move, dance, and express.
About the facilitator:
Dalia Fakhr (a.k.a. Dolce), is a performing artist and Dance/Movement worker. Her experience ranges from trainings and practices in Dance Movement Therapy, Playback Theater, Viewpoints, and various art/performance based action methods. Her method is a combination of her diverse experiences and is the result of her strong belief in the power and importance of expression through movement. Dalia designs her sessions in a way to leave room for improvised exercises, because to her, committing to the moment, which comprises of present participants, time, and space, is more important than committing to an outline, which consist of words on a piece of paper.
