Winter Retreat in Contemplative Dance/Authentic Movement

February 9-11, 2024

Friday 3pm - Sunday 1pm

Faculty: Daphne Lowell & Alton Wasson

Location: Genesis Spiritual Life & Conference Center

Limited to 16 experienced participants

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

Poised in the moment, we listen. Being, in stillness and action, moves us.

Please join us for this weekend of Contemplative Dance/Authentic Movement in the quiet and comfort of winter. We offer this annual retreat in the spirit of rest, to take a break from our usual lives to refresh and regenerate. We'll also work with silence and sound, and invoke spiritual dimensions of Contemplative Dance/ Authentic Movement. We'll explore such practices as movers containing their experiences, silent witnessing and non-verbal forms of being in community. Together we will create spaciousness, permission and safety around all that moves us.
