I have created a new web forum for holistic healers supporting soldiers. It is a place where we can discuss, ask questions and share ideas. There are many of us out there, but it isn’t always easy to find each other. Please feel free to share this forum widely. Let’s start connecting!
Start the new year off on the right foot…join Psychology Today’s new blog on dance/movement therapy!
Dance therapy is alive and well in 2012 and stands strong in this tumultuous time in our history. This year’s ADTA conference in Albuquerque, NM was a colorful collage of connection, new ideas, creativity, and deep wisdom. The International Balloon Fiesta was the perfect backdrop for this meeting, as we all felt lifted by one another’s support and enthusiasm. In the two days that I attended workshops I experienced dance through drumming, touch, eco-therapy, clinical assessment, and trauma exploration. Dance as therapy is crucial to the healing of humanity’s wounds; the evidence cannot be ignored. So wherever you are, dance strong, dance loud, and dance often. You owe it to yourself.
So happy to see the media paying attention to the success of mind-body therapies in treating trauma symptoms with Veterans and military members.
See how dance has helped this Marine creatively express his military experiences.
