Awakening Wisdom: The Dance of Movement & Stillness with Deborah Welsh, Laura Ruth, Kerstin Lipke

Nov 1-4, 2018

Join us as we create together a gentle and safe container for befriending our bodies and exploring what it is to be alive moment by moment. This process of discovery, through dance, movement and creativity will be held within the essential Wisdom rhythm of silent prayer, chanting, lectio divina, conscious work, and sacred conversation. As these practices nourish our inner being, in community they expand our awareness of the whole, supporting us to be ever more connected, grounded, supple and awake in daily life.

In this long weekend (3-night) retreat, we welcome people of all spiritual traditions (or none). Some experience with silent prayer may be helpful. No particular physical ability or prior experience with dance or movement is necessary. All bodies are welcome!

Deborah Welsh, Ed.D., a Wisdom Leader and creator of “Wisdom of the Body”, has worked with Bill Redfield and Lois Barton co-leading Wisdom Schools since 2010. She is a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist, Mental Health Counselor, and Board Certified Dance Movement Therapist, specializing in dance and movement as sacred. Her underpinnings are in modern and improvisational dance, the psychology of C.G. Jung, yoga, and exercise physiology.
