Sometimes, trauma, grief, and challenges are stories that have forgotten how to dance. The major objective of the class is to get our trauma/grief/challenge stories moving – through story-telling, music and movement. We will write our stories and read them slowly, while others move. Giving up the word ‘impossible,’ we then vision how we most want the situation to be, write that story, and again others will move as the stories are slowly read. This practice is consistent with the current academic research for addressing these issues.
Dr. Jennifer Elam has led an amazing life of writing, publishing, dancing, university teaching, studying deep spirituality, traveling the world, and four decades of working as a psychologist.
