FORMAT (workshop / performance / talk etc.
Every human being has the right to inhabit their body in the way they choose. The body, and its primary language of movement, enables and empowers us to connect and express all aspects of life through dance. Playshop facilitator Amber Gray will guide participants through movement, dance and rhythmic practices that foster grounding, awareness, inner connection and compassion in service of individual change, social change, and perhaps, even, evolution.
Amber has been an authorized Continuum Movement teacher in Santa Fe & Australia since 2006. She is recognized as a pioneer in movement therapies and trauma. Gray received the 2010 ADTA Outstanding Achievement Award for her global dance therapy work with survivors of displacement, violence, war, torture and natural disasters. She is also a licensed psychotherapist, body-worker, cranial-sacral therapist, and humanitarian. With almost thirty years experience as a practitioner and teacher of practices for well being, she integrates her many somatic influences and practices with years of study with medicine people in Haiti, Sámi land and Australia, and an open heart and a curious mind, into her teaching.
