Foundation Workshop Participant testimonial:
“As a Dance Educator, and also as part of my research for my Masters Degree in Dance Pedagogy, I was seeking to discover understanding and meaning in dance movement. Particularly to facilitate well–being in children. To look at movement and the arts as an embodied experience, not only a physical competency. Living our lives from a dualistic perspective can disfranchise us from using our feelings and experiences, which could enable growth and change. My analysis drew me to the work of Anna Halprin and subsequently Tamalpa. On attending the Tamalpa Experience Weekend, it became clear the Tamalpa work facilitated practical therapeutic interpretation of what movement and the expressive arts can tell us as to how the body holds our knowledge. It enabled a grounded theoretical medium to transfer our stories into embodied action. I began to form an understanding of the theory. Also how The Tamalpa work helps community, healing and action, this led me to continue to delve deeper and attend a further Foundation Weekend. Realising that Tamalpa Movement based expressive arts proved a very transferable positive healing practice that can be appropriated in varied communities. I went on to attend the foundation weekend.
The wholeness of the Tamalpa Foundation Weekend highlighted to me that even though looking at the work from an analytic academic lens there was no escaping the personal content that is at the core of the practices. This felt very real to me, very meaningful and transferable to my professional practice and my personal mythology. The vastness and fluidity of ‘Maps and Methods of practice’, the directness of the three levels of awareness and also theories on the kinaesthetic experience all developed by Anna and Daria Halprin are leading me to continue my journey and the Level 1 training will hopefully be my next step.”
