Healing Through Dance, Meditation and Movement

“We dance for laughter, we dance for tears, we dance for madness, we dance for fears, we dance for hopes, we dance for screams, we are the dancers, we create the dreams.”

-Albert Einstein

Even though we are coming out of this pandemic, seems like yesterday and it seems like a lifetime when things were shut down and we were navigating and figuring things out. 

Regardless of circumstances, life requires us to navigate change and figure things out.

As I’ve been navigating my journey coming back to dance in 2014 after two decades, it didn’t dawn on me that dance has been a huge component of my healing process in dealing with the negative relationship I had with myself and in turn how that affected my relationship with others.

During the pandemic I had a delightful exchange with dancer, choreographer, somatic and creative recovery coach Morgyn Danae and I am happy to share this conversation that reminded me of the healing and meditative benefits of dance and movement.

 3 Takeaways from this session:

  1. Dance and movement are meditation. Meditation comes in different forms and can be experienced in different ways.
  2. Trauma is stored in the body and there are methods to address and release trauma.
  3. Dance, movement and meditation go beyond the aesthetic and performative aspects. Dance is a healing art.
