The Wisdom of the Body in Movement: Dance Movement Therapy with Vicky Karkou and Angeliki Bitzaraki 

This will be a week informed by principles of dance movement psychotherapy that will encourage participants to explore aspects of themselves and relational patterns in particular. We believe that our bodies are in constant movement offering volumes of information about who we are, how we are, how we feel and think and how we relate or want to relate with others. But, the moving body is not always listened to.

This will be a week of celebrating the wisdom of the moving body in ways that will:

Allow for an active physical presence and deep connections with our bodies.
Support empathetic engagement with another in meaningful non-verbal dialogues.

Enable the discovery of ways of being with groups that are supportive and empowering.

Bring an awareness to nature as the context within which our relationships with our bodies and with others find additional meaning.

The facilitators are qualified Dance Movement Therapists. They will bring their knowledge, experience and training aiming to facilitate personal growth.
