The Body As Shadow

The Body As Shadow

Discovering our True Nature through Authentic Movement

"The body is merely the visibility of the soul, the psyche, and the soul is the psychological experience of the body. So it is really one and the same thing." C. G. Jung

Screen Shot 2017-10-23 at 1.55.45 PM.png

Experience Authentic Movement, a non-directed movement exploration that takes us beyond learned patterns to our soul journey. Here is where the wellspring of all creativity abides and where the deepest psychological and spiritual insights and healing take place. 

In this retreat, we invite our somatic unconscious to speak and guide us through movement, drawing, and writing. No experience is necessary. Curiosity and desire to attune to our inner world is all that is important. When we allow the body to speak, our unique story can be heard. Insight into our true nature naturally emerges without interpretation. When we share and witness together, each participant's experience will be treated with respect and not interpreted. Thus together we learn to honor our own and other's unique personal, creative, and spiritual paths.

Erica Lorentz

Erica Lorentz, M.Ed., L.P.C., Jungian Analyst (IAAP) has studied many forms of dance and movement work. She has studied Authentic Movement since 1975. Her teachers were Janet Adler and Joan Chodorow. From 1986 to the present, she has lectured and taught workshops in the US and Canada. As a Jungian Analyst, she incorporates embodied consciousness into her work. While living in Houston in 2007, Erica helped develop and taught in the Beyond Words Dance Therapy Training program. Presently she is a training analyst at the C. G. Jung Institute of Boston, the President of the Jung Association of Western MA, and has a private practice in Northampton MA.

The Body As Shadow 2

Discovering our True Nature through Authentic Movement

"The body is merely the visibility of the soul, the psyche, and the soul is the psychological experience of the body. So it is really one and the same thing." C. G. Jung

Screen Shot 2017-10-23 at 1.55.45 PM.png

Experience Authentic Movement, a non-directed movement exploration that takes us beyond learned patterns to our soul journey. Here is where the wellspring of all creativity abides and where the deepest psychological and spiritual insights and healing take place. 

In this retreat, we invite our somatic unconscious to speak and guide us through movement, drawing, and writing. No experience is necessary. Curiosity and desire to attune to our inner world is all that is important. When we allow the body to speak, our unique story can be heard. Insight into our true nature naturally emerges without interpretation. When we share and witness together, each participant's experience will be treated with respect and not interpreted. Thus together we learn to honor our own and other's unique personal, creative, and spiritual paths.

Erica Lorentz

Erica Lorentz, M.Ed., L.P.C., Jungian Analyst (IAAP) has studied many forms of dance and movement work. She has studied Authentic Movement since 1975. Her teachers were Janet Adler and Joan Chodorow. From 1986 to the present, she has lectured and taught workshops in the US and Canada. As a Jungian Analyst, she incorporates embodied consciousness into her work. While living in Houston in 2007, Erica helped develop and taught in the Beyond Words Dance Therapy Training program. Presently she is a training analyst at the C. G. Jung Institute of Boston, the President of the Jung Association of Western MA, and has a private practice in Northampton MA.

Nia Floor Play Retreat

to Jun 10

Nia Floor Play Retreat

Screen Shot 2018-03-30 at 6.40.04 PM.png

Nia FloorPlay is unique program that stimulates functional movement and self-healing by working with Nia principles and The Body’s Way philosophy. The practice uses space, time and gravity guided by the element of play to creatively condition the body. Students learn how to master moving on the floor versus exercising on the floor; the difference in somatic orientation delivers a powerful holistic fitness experience. The art of FloorPlay is blending one move into the next to create a beautiful dance that massages and strengthens the whole body from fingers to toes. All of the body postures and moves in FloorPlay are personalized to help you open up and guide your body into new levels of strength, flexibility, mobility, agility and stability that nurture your body’s way.

This 2-day training is focused on you and your body to deepen your knowledge of the science, craft and art of play and how to achieve greater comfort, function, meaning and purpose from moving on the floor.

You’ll learn:

  • moving versus exercising
  • fundamentals of moving on the floor
  • energy support from the body’s three Hara’s
  • dynamic alignment
  • the role of play in self-healing
  • gravity + natural conditioning

Included in this training:

  • 2-Days hands on Training
  • FloorPlay On-line Teacher Tutorial Training - self-directed, hour based program providing further education on learning and teaching Nia FloorPlay.

* Nia Knee Pads are required and can be purchased at the training for $10.00.

Open to everyone: students and teachers!  

Enjoy a weekend experiencing FloorPlay with Debbie Rosas for only $299!

Register for 2 Day course at NiaNOW.com.
