Its a gentle way to cultivate presence and to explore somatic countertransference.In these experiential workshops participants will be introduced to the Contemplative Dance Practice ( translated by Dance Movement Psychotherapist Bernadette Divilly to explore the supervision process within psychotherapy. 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 kinaesthetic delight and cultivating awareness while engaging with the four pillars of mindful movement practices.Deep play in open space practice will be used to move with the supervision process, including the roles, responsibilities and tasks.
