Weeklong Creative Expression retreat with morning and afternoon Voice and Sound Therapy, as well as Movement Medicine classes!!
In the sessions dedicated to sound, we will explore our relationship with rhythm, breath and the use of our voice, and how these tools can give us greater creativity, freedom and capacity to express who we are and embrace more of ourselves. Sound and voice work aim to restore physical, emotional, mental and spiritual balance through their use as healing forces.
In the sessions dedicate to dance, we will explore how movement and dance are tools that can enhance our playfulness, help us connect to one another and discover our unique creative expression. We will also be dancing outdoors, in order to deepen our relationship with Nature, explore a wider movement vocabulary and discover new ways in which the body wants to move and expand, when it is not constricted in a room.
Movement Medicine (http://movementmedicineassociation.org/) is a form of conscious dance and movement meditation that has deep roots in shamanism, contemporary therapeutics and artistic wisdom. It is a practice that supports personal growth, expansion, healing, well-being and a deeper relationship with ourselves and others.
There will be plenty of time in between activities to enjoy the beautiful beaches, crystal clear waters and warm sunshine of the seaside village of Chora Sfakion on the south of Crete.
The classes are taught by Laura Valenti (harmonicinspiration.com), an apprentice Movement Medicine teacher and facilitator, sound and voice therapist, theater artist and clown. Laura has also recently trained in somatic energy medicine and body work. She is passionate about community, co-creation, exploring the relationship between the body and Nature, and sustainable living. Her background is in Law, Sociology of Migration, and Human Rights. She danced her way all through cancer and chemotherapy, trusting the innate intelligence of the body, its capacity to heal and that movement is her medicine. Laura has taught Movement Medicine in the UK, the US, and in Peru.
