NEW!  Summer Retreat in Contemplative Dance/Authentic Movement  

August 14-16, 2020

Friday, 3pm - Sunday, 1pm (EDT), including evenings on Friday and Saturday

Faculty: Daphne Lowell and Alton Wasson

Limited to 20 experienced participants

Prerequisite: Our Week I or equivalent CD/AM workshops (approximately 30 hours of mentored moving and witnessing practice, readiness to move for longer sessions, and to maintain safe boundaries)

This weekend is designed for experienced practitioners of Contemplative Dance/Authentic Movement to practice together during this strange liminal time, which we feel calls for more embodied presence and compassionate witnessing of self, others and the world. We find that such embodiment grounds us and enables us to empathize with our fellow human beings. The practice of witnessing is by definition one of loving kindness and non-judgment, of giving our attention to self and others while cultivating awareness of our lenses of perception. These are qualities much needed when so many forces push to divide us from each other, and even from ourselves.  


We designed this weekend so that we can listen, be still, and learn afresh what is important to each of us. We will move to stir up our body’s reservoirs of health and healing, call on our deeper streams of vision, and move forward with embodied hope and imagination.


The weekend will include various moving and witnessing sessions, including some with silent witnessing, and round robins, some as a whole group, and some in smaller groups. There will also be guided movement meditations, and choices for working in partners, moving outdoors and creative forming. Also, we are designing ways to explore Contemplative Dance/Authentic Movement while paying careful attention to enhancing our energy rather than overwhelming ourselves with too much Zooming.
