Are you ready to dig in the relationship with your body, improve your self-awareness, and explore movement as a self-development tool?
Passing from a language level to a physical level we trigger the emotion of the person, in this project we will discover how to do it, what is the impact on ourself and practice how to deliver it to others.
Using dancing, meditation, dance therapy, and music therapy activities, and embodied learning, we will not only experience it, but there will also be an opportunity to dig into how to organize it and implement it.
Our focus is on the level of embodied learning, with the advent of neuroscience, Rationalism has been greatly challenged. Theories of embodied cognition suggest that the mind is not an abstract and isolated entity. Rather the mind is integrated into the body’s sensorimotor systems (Barsalou, 1999, 2008). Followingly, cognitive processes are mediated by “body-based systems”. In this method and approach of education, one does not only offer an intellectual way of teaching but also involve the whole body
