Mind Your Body

Summary: How can we use "body knowledge" into patterns of behaving, thinking, and feeling? Can we facilitate harmony within each individual and with society as a whole? Mind Your Body is a podcast that aims to inform listeners about the inner-workings of the human body as a vehicle for improved consciousness of thoughts and actions using principles and concepts from dance/movement therapy, the psychotherapeutic use of movement that furthers the emotional, physical, and intellectual integration of an individual. We will explore popular social, emotional, behavioral, and political topics from this perspective. Tune in and find out as your host, Orit Krug, shares her interviews with dance/movement therapists and other experts who have a unique perspective on the subject.

 24. Embodying “Me Too” | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 38:32

Millions of women courageously shared their history of sexual assault and trauma sparked by the “me too” movement. In this episode, Hannah Blake advises how to embody this process for an opportunity to keep moving towards healing using more than words. Hannah identifies that body awareness, meditation, spontaneous expression, and nature are powerful embodiment tools in all healing processes. “I Will Stand” blog post: https://goo.gl/qs2AdM Visit www.mindyourbodydmt.com Hannah is a professional dancer and movement guide. She trained professionally with masters across the world, including the Bolshoi and Kirov Academies, and danced with Complexions Contemporary.

As class became more about improvisation, inner exploration, and connecting community, both she and her students began having enormous personal and health breakthroughs. This path of harnessing dance as a form of collective and personal healing led her to founding the Kaia Method.

Steve and Connor describe their ever-evolving technique that facilitates deep introspection, community gathering, and conversation on hot-button topics. Listen in on how they make all of this happen even in groups of people who have no verbal language in common. Visit www.mindyourbodydmt.com Steve Harvey and Connor Kelly first met at the 1988 ADTA conference in Baltimore and then at an ADTA Education meeting in Chicago in June 1989. They regularly practiced contact improvisation  and often added witnessing and story.  They began collaborating in April 1990 with a group in Europe called Theatre of Spontaneity which has a basis in Playback Theatre where they began to explore their movement/dance based scores.  This group met every 9 months in a different European city until 1996.  They gathered to explore and then offer performances.  They began using their scores in supervision and teaching at conferences, developing their idea of exquisite communication and the story under the story.  When they moved to New Zealand in 2003 they found a group of dancers to practice the form further, and in 2007 they were invited to offer a two day post-conference workshop in Melbourne for the DTAA.  This opportunity, along with the ADTA conference in 2015 helped refine the practice for further research opportunities including a recent project of cross cultural research in Shanghai in September 2017.

A renowned vinyl-spinning DJ with over 25 years of dance-floor experience under his belt, he’s uniquely qualified to clearly articulate the benefits of analog sound and provide a high-vibe dance experience. With recent research proving that common digital compression formats such as MP3 actually suppress the positive emotions such as joy, peace, and happiness while amplifying the negative emotions of grief, sadness, and depression, his inquiry into the subtle effects of sound is more important than ever. Mark started writing about the social effects of dance and music in the early 90’s for various magazines when he was the owner of Ameba, a rave-oriented retail shop in San Francisco’s Haight Ashbury. In 2007 he coined the term ‘conscious dance’ and launched Conscious Dancer Magazine.
