Movement workshops and therapeutic groups integrating dance improvisation, art making, creative writing and connecting to place.
In this workshop Dance Movement Therapist, Matilda Tonkin Wells, will reflect on the intertwining states of body and psyche. Together we will examine what it means and feels like to be embodied and creative beings in a new kind of reality. We will feel into what this reality has meant for our clinical work, the joys and challenges of adaptation and our own fluctuations in relation to the changing landscape.
Over six online sessions, Matilda Tonkin Wells, Dance Artist and Movement Psychotherapist, will guide you through an embodied exploration of how we can Create Space for Loss. We will use movement practices, meditation and other creative techniques to cultivate self-awareness and self-compassion in order to better understand and express the trauma of losing loved ones. Through pausing to notice what we are feeling in our bodies, we can tune into our own personal emotional subtleties relating to death and dying.
Movement for Wellbeing is an online six-week course commencing Monday 12th April in partnership with MIND Aberystwyth. In these sessions you will learn new ways to support and nourish yourself through guided movements to release stress and tension and connect with your body.
A movement workshop for exploring the flux of thing. For movers of any level of experience. A movement research workshop led by dance artists Thomasin Gulgec and Matilda Tonkin Wells. We will investigate opening and attuning to ourselves and our localities, through guided scores for inside and out-of-doors. Weaving together Thomasin and Matilda's shared interest in martial practices and improvisation, the workshop will be an exploration of the flux and aliveness of things, opening to what is in its appearing and disappearing form. Through engaging with both inner and outer we can explore what moves us and what is moved by us, from one moment to the next and everything in between.
This workshop offers a moment to come together, move and share, exploring the act of wayfaring as a creative practice of being with and in change. Using simple movement scores, you will be guided through solo and group wayfaring dances for both your inside space and your outside locality, laying the trail as we go along it, in all its unknown.
Finding Ground is a set of workshops offering a space to creatively explore sustainable relationships to ourselves -through movement, art making and creative writing - and to the planet - through mediations in nature and learning about planting and growing. Offered in collaboration with the Maya Centre, a counselling service for women in North London, we will be focusing on tuning into the stories of the body from a trauma-informed perspective and unfolding our curiosity for dance and movement as ways of connecting.
