Saturday 5th May, 2018


Move and connect with your body in creative ways. Experience an active day of drama games and movement exercises designed to reconnect you to your body, spirit and purpose. We will be exploring a range of gentle exercises drawing on Gestalt and body-orientated methods. Frtiz Perls challenges us to "lose our minds and come to our senses". Discover how simple movement exercises can relax and reinvigorate the chair-bound professional and enhance your physical and mental health.


You will have the opportunity to:

  • Experience a range of drama and movement exercises for self reflection, relaxation and fun
  • Build skills in drama and movement based exercises
  • Learn practical, easy movement exercises to use every day
  • Reflect in ways that are comfortable for you
  • Work in the safe environment of a small group

Methods will include:

  • Interactive presentations
  • Large group discussions
  • Pair and small group discussions
  • Experiential drama and movement exercises 
  • Practice with group work
  • Reflection opportunities for application of methods

Workshop Venue

Burwood RSL, 96 Shaftesbury Rd, Burwood. Free onsite parking and walking distance to trains and buses


Who should attend?

Men and women interested in a warm and friendly non-pathologisingly space for thinking about, "How am I?", "What do I need?", "'Where am I going?". This day offers self reflection, self care, relaxation and self recognition. It is open to all who are interested in self discovery and self expression in safety and with fun and joy. 


Those working in mental health such as play therapists, art therapists, psychologists, social workers, counsellors, case workers, child and family workers, pastoral workers, other allied health professionals and students who are currently working or intend to work with creative movement in counselling and group work could especially benefit and use for CPD.
