Synapsa center Israel & Somatic Space in DanceLAB Praha presents:
Somatic education in Movement and Voice integration for facilitators of creative & healing processes
BodyVoice is a developmental, therapeutic and artistic method, that deals with archaic body and voice wisdom.
This somatic practice integrates voice and movement in a unique way through mindfulness, ritual, spontaneous composition and bodywork. The process allows a new awareness that organizes
the bodymind and emotions into full creativity and aliveness.
We are inviting therapists, artists and bodywork practitioners to join this journey.
BODYVOICE Method offers skills for creative personal development, for artistic development and for the training of teachers and assistants in this method. The work draws from, and is inspired by: Shamanic teachings of Maud Robar , Jerzy Grotowski, Feldenkreis Method, Alexander Technique, Laban Movement Analysis, Continuum Movement, Body Mind Centering, Hakomi Somatic Psychotherapy, . Above all, the work is informed by many years of personal study, research, and curiosity about personal development through body wisdom.
is a process of reconstructing the organic connection that links breathing,
movement and voice. This renewed basic connection releases the
flow of natural healing forces, creative energy, vitality, and spontaneity. By
that, it recovers the organic connection between body, mind, emotions and
soul. Voice and movement are the main language of our inner life, reconnecting us with our unconscious roots as well as our collective sources.
Our vitality, health and joy emerge when connecting to these deep roots.
During this process, we go through an "evolution", a re-development that
recovers our connection with different conscious levels and modes of
expression, accessible for us during the pre-linguistic period as children.
This development brings us back to our body - a connection to our
authentic self and to the wisdom of natural healing. The process creates
changes in the body-mind patterns as well in our relationship to ourselves
and others. It widens our capabilities of coping with the world from a
place of creativity and mindful presence.
While returning to our body's natural rhythms, we experience a release of the free voice, carried by the pulsations of our body's musicality.
Through the release of the voice, we open up to the colorful musical language of inner life, expressed by improvised dancing and singing. We bring forth a variety of voices within us, a variety of inner characters. The freed voice brings up the possibility to open blocked emotional traumatic experiences to a new flow of life. We access archaic body memories, and contact fully the world of vocal and visual images by entering the world of body rhythm, sounds and melodies of the present moment.
