The Move into Life Training Group with Sandra Reeve
Wootton Fitzpaine, West Dorset ~ November 2023 - November 2024
If Move into Life movement practice is a vital part of your life and personal practice and if you have found yourself including elements of this way of working into your own professional work with others, or would like to do so - then this course is for you!
Ideally you will have participated at least once in each of the Move into Life Cycle workshops: Body in Movement, Movement & Communication, Environmental Movement and Strata: Autobiographical Movement.
Rather than focusing on your own personal movement practice, the emphasis of this course will be on how to bring movement awareness to others, individually and in a small group ~ as a therapist, teacher, performer or in some other sharing role. I shall not be teaching you to become ‘Move into Life’ teachers but I shall be guiding you to work with others through movement as an integrated part of your own work and in a way which is compatible with your own particular skills and preferences. There will be a strong emphasis on the skills of embodied witnessing and guiding through movement.
There will be a certificate of attendance at the end of the training course, validating the work that you have done with me and, once agreed, you will be able to pass on what you have studied with me in whatever way feels right for you. If you would like to affiliate yourself with Move into Life practice, you will be welcome to do so, joining an active group of colleagues.
It will be a strong commitment for the year, both to the development of your own integrated practice and to the others in the group.
Training Modules (each is 5-7 days)
1 Body in Movement – Basics for individual movement.
2 Movement & Communication – Basics for communication and group movement
3 Environmental Movement – Basics for working in the environment
4 Autobiographical Movement – Application of the above skills to guiding an individual as part of a group to working with their choice of personal theme, bringing it into embodied awareness and creating a short movement piece to crystallise their experience and to be witnessed by the group.
5 Past , Present and Future – Review, Feedback and Visions for the Future.
Between workshops you will be asked to practise what you have learnt with other people to crystallise your training.
Individual sessions with me will be available throughout the year, live and on Zoom at a reduced rate.
It may be possible to book reasonably priced self-catering accommodation when shared by 3 /4 people, in Wootton Fitzpaine or Charmouth, for all the courses in advance, once I know how many people will need accommodation. Since the pandemic, prices have risen steeply, so if you are clear that you want to do this training, let me know as soon as you can. I shall do my best to find good accommodation but cannot promise at this stage.
Please tell me in your application if you would like to share a cottage with others, with a single room or twin room or if you would prefer to arrange your own accommodation [or if you can offer accommodation to others].
This training is by application, as numbers are limited.
Please let me know briefly why you would like to participate, what interests you in particular, how much work you have done with me, and in which professional situations you might imagine sharing this work with others? Of course, it could be that you wish to do the training for your own interest and personal development, which is also fine as long as you are prepared to follow the guidelines above around guiding sessions for others.
