Saturday 1st December 2018
Facilitator: Bernadette Divilly
Moving Awareness practice through the use of Contemplative Dance and Authentic Movement practice provides therapists in supervision with a route to understanding how we metabolize our own internal states and those of our clients through the body awareness and action. It’s a gentle way to cultivate presence and to explore somatic counter-transference.
In this experiential workshop, participants will be introduced to the Contemplative Dance Practice (www.barbaradilley.com) translated by Dance Movement Psychotherapist Bernadette Divilly to explore the supervision process within psychotherapy and some of the witnessing principles of authentic movement.
Contemplative Dance Practice (CDP) mingles the discipline of meditation and improvisation in a simple structure using personal awareness practice, open space and discussion/ reflection time. Participants will practice tracking kinesthetic delight and cultivating awareness while engaging with the four pillars of mindful movement practices. The intention is to apply the CDP model to support supervision as an interactive field. Attention will be directed toward client care as the core activator of the movement process. This workshop is focused on being a support to the supervision processes and not as supervision. Its primary purpose will be to welcome and be with the unknown kindly. This workshop is suitable for experienced supervisors and professionals who are engaging with supervision in a variety of contexts.
Participants are asked to wear loose fitting clothes (for the movement) and please bring a yoga mat/blanket and a pillow/cushion.
Bernadette Divilly trained as a humanistic psychotherapist at the Creative Counselling Centre in the early 90s. She has a private practice in Galway, where she runs a group for contemplative dance as a support for supervision. Contemplative movement practices and creativity are core to her practice. She also works as a choreographer, dance movement psychotherapist & dancer with an MA in Somatic Psychology & Dance Movement Therapy from Naropa University Boulder CO and Hons BA in Psychology from NUI Galway.

The Suicide Prevention Page was thriving and growing which also gave Mary the deep knowing that this work was for her and that she was capable of being with and managing it. This she has done by holding clear ethical boundaries and by being a loving witness. Mary managed the workings of the page which was open 20 hours a day and also, she Managed and provided educative workshops for the 25-30 team administrators.
