Human Heart: A creative Movement Approach to Self-Care with Tali Rose
A practical workshop for MA Arts Therapies Students Tuesday, 6th December, 6:00-7:00pm
Whitelands College, Whitelands Dance-Drama Studio Booking Essential – limited to 20 places
Tali Rose invites participants to experience an approach to creative movement resources as a form of self-nourishment. During the MA training, it is vital for students to develop a personal practice that can support learning, self-care and wellbeing. Participants will be guided to explore the organ of the heart, exploring opposing attitudes that con-nect to that organ such as opening and closing, giving and receiving, blame and kindness, relaxation and tension. The heart is the central organ of the circulatory system. It is here that life-giving blood is pumped through the entire body. Giving time to nourishing this part of ourselves, through the light of our awareness, we attend to what’s there. In turn, we can spread this focus, through a re-laxed attitude throughout our body and out into the world, with a nourishing intention.
The workshop will explore:
• Cultivating an awareness of attitude as you move - with the potential for you be able to practice anywhere and as part of your daily life routine.
• An opportunity to experience a model of a personal practice and create a resource for your own personal therapeutic model
• Can be added to your personal creative portfolio
