HEILSAMER TANZ (Healing Dance) is dancing through touch, with a partner or in a group.
Your touch helps me to better feel my body.
We feel ourselves to better feel each other.
HEILSAMER TANZ is improvised but always conscious.
In HEILSAMER TANZ, I find my self-expression und am seen by you.
In HEILSAMER TANZ you discover the dance that I can dance with you.
We encounter ourselves. We encounter each other. We encounter our own feelings.
HEILSAMER TANZ is arriving at a place of mutual support.
HEILSAMER TANZ plays around with the polarities and qualities of life.
In HEILSAMER TANZ, thinking becomes one with action, touching with doing.
Healing joy may well blossom.
OTHER WORKSHOPS OF Dieter Rehberg
Feel – Move – Be Happy
Somatic Movement was developed to make inner alignment, a meditative mind, health and bodily freedom easily accessible to everyone.
Somatic Movement encourages people to listen to the messages from within the body and to discover their idiosyncratic movement vocabulary.
Somatic Movement emphasises on the heedful and caring perception of bodily processes and movements. The somatic dialogue, the sensing as question and answer enhances self-organisation and development of a person.
By the means of Somatic Movement we encounter the wisdom of the lively experience, which results from an "attention to" instead of "control" or "mastering" of processes of life. The somatic movement is a discovery by nature.
The practice of Somatic Movement:
Feel mindfully the qualities of your body
Feel your weight
Feel your breath
Listen to yourself mindfully and from within yourself to find your own wisdom and to develop your own health.
Learn the form
Forget the form
Listen to the answer of your body
Find your personal movement
The quality of your feeling is more important than the form of your body’s position.
