I offer classes and workshops integrating elements of BodySoul Rhythms, BodyDreaming, Dancing the Rainbow and Creative Art Practices.
I call this work KoruExplore – seeing life as a spiral journey, an exploration of the creative process.
The spiral symbol is found in many indigenous cultures and represents the unfolding cycle of regeneration – Life/Death/Regrowth.
The Maori call this KORU – Based on the unfurling fern, it’s shape conveys the idea of perpetual movement, while the inner coil, suggests returning to the point of origin. And such is life, a journey of exploration.
In Irish Coru means Care, in these classes and workshops the intention is Care of the BodySoulSpirit.
BodySoul Rhythms® holds that psyche and soma are one, inseparable, and must be worked on together.
The BodySoul® approach consists in working dream and imagery together with body and voice in a powerful way. Honouring the uniqueness of each individual, it allows an integration of mind and body, soul and spirit to emerge.
The teaching has a strong base in the psychology of C. G. Jung, as developed by Jungian analyst Marion Woodman, dance educator Mary Hamilton, and voice coach Ann Skinner. The BodySoul approach consists in working dream and imagery together with body and voice in a powerful way.
The roots of this work grew out of a deep respect for dreams and for the great wisdom of the body.
Dancing the Rainbow – The Art of the Dancing Healer
Teaches practices to come home to the wisdom of the moving body through various Creative Art Practices – Movement,Mark making and exploring various mediums, Voice-work etc.
DTR uses the map of the Yoga Chakra System, exploring various types of Music/Sounds, Colours, Movement/Gestures to help bring us into Earth, Fluid, Fire, Air and Ether.
Dancing the Rainbow Teacher Training was created in the 1990’s by Lani O’Hanlon (Dance Movement Therapist and Author) and Antoinette Spillane (Artist, Yoga and Voice Teacher).
