Emerging Movement Workshop and Ongoing Classes

Posted on: Friday March 28, 2014

Emerging Movement is a process for self discovery and expression that draws upon wisdom from a number of arenas. Weaving elements of meditation, movement, reflection, music, art and celebration, a space is created for individual exploration and communal sharing of ourselves. The workshop and classes will be taught by Wendy Shumway, M.D. To learn more about Dr Shumway, click this link. .

To participate in the Emerging Movement process, one first must take the introductory workshop, which will be offered at Encore Physical Therapy on Saturday, April 12, 2014 from Noon to 5:00 PM. During this half day experience, one learns about the theoretical underpinnings of the process and explores the experiential process in depth. Each element of the movement process will be explained and practiced with the guidance of a facilitator. This allows the participants to develop a familiarity and comfort with the process so that they then can join in the bi-weekly sessions that are open to anyone who has completed an introductory workshop.

The bi-weekly sessions presume that one has a basic understanding of the form but also are facilitated. They become the practice ground for deepening into the experience. The sessions are organized around a theme chosen from anonymous suggestions dropped in the online suggestion box. These themes are universal in nature but are active at the time for the person making the request. Experience has shown that even if the topic currently is not one that is “up” for you, there are threads of it that lead you into meaningful internal exploration. Each session is 2 hours in length. It is comprised of an intention setting process, a movement process, a creative activity to integrate and bring into form the experiences/insights gained during the movement phase and a time for sharing with others.
