A path of healing through body and dance

IEC Conference: 2023

“Dance, dance, otherwise we are lost.” Pina Bausch
As human beings we are movement: from the simple breathing to everyday gestures, our body express what we feel about life. Body memory recalls and presents closure or openness in the human relationship, leading to a more or less authenticity in the encounter with the other. The release of traumas and the deepening of self-love can also be experienced in full body dance, in its many dimensions: biological, psychological, rational, social and spiritual. When this happens, there is a new birth of  the being and daily living. This workshop invites to the healing, encounter and reconciliation through body and dance in the authentic movement.
