Visual arts as healing

Saturday afternoon, we expanded the morning session and talked about the physiology of dance and healing, how dance is embodiment, how it involves muscle movements.  we then took the drawing from the morning and the words and danced a moment from the drawing and one word that was especially healing.  We did echo dance and spoke about  how the process is a spiral that goes deeper as we work.  we then made healing circles and with one person in the middle four people created a healing dance and dancer around the person.  This was beautiful and healing for the person being healed and the dancers. We talked about how dance heals, moving and healing, moving in bed,
dancing the spirits, going to dance performances, finding your own healing
dance.  Several classmates presented on making a project as a group to heal and told about what they were doing to set up a healing program in a local center.
