IAHIP Office, 40 Northumberland Avenue, Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin
Facilitator: Liz Gleeson – Embodiment/Open Floor Movement Practice
There has been an explosion of embodiment practices around the globe over the past two decades, attracting people from all walks of life. In this experiential workshop, we shall explore one of these practices – Open Floor, discovering the make-up of movement cycles and experiencing some of the basic movement principals that are common to all embodiment practices, such as Grounding, Activating and Settling, Towards and Away & Release. We shall look at some of the hungers that are intrinsic to humans: Solitude, Connection, Belonging, Spirit and see how these needs can be met through movement practice. We shall finish by discussing how movement practices such as the Open Floor, the 5 Rhythms, Movement Medicine and Soul Motion can help our clients or indeed serve us, the therapists, as part of a self-care package.
