Returning to Health: With Dance, Movement & Imagery

Returing to Health: with Dance, Movement & Imagery is a theoretical and practical approach to using movement and imagery as a modality for people challenging cancer and other life threatening illness. Anna Halprin describes her expressive movement work with terminally ill patients and documents a ten-week series with each class clearly described in ways that can be easily followed by others using dance, movement or imagery as healing arts.

Examples of participants’ experiences, drawings, photographs and words, are interwoven with lesson plans, directions and summaries in a lively and balanced format, which never feels abstract or difficult to read. Halprin manages to describe movement processes succinctly and in ways you can easily visualize, understand and try out. The reader “breathes and moves” through this book as Halprin leads us into the healing room.

Halprin offers the wisdom of her life experience as a dancer, teacher, cancer survivor, and facilitator for healing.

    A Creative Path to Healing, February 23, 2008
    By 
    Grizelda (California, USA) –

    This review is from: Returning to Health: With Dance, Movement & Imagery (Paperback)

    A grounded, practical guide to using movement, dance, drawing, expression, as tools to heal the body of cancer. Exercises and creative visualizations to bring groups in direct participation with the healing process, incorporating the entire body and spirit with breath, movement, creativity, and visualizations. Geared towards teachers, guides, or moderators who may be interested in leading classes or seminars in the field, after thoroughly examining and experiencing the process first hand. Lots of photographs illustrating the process, showing examples of artwork produced in the workshops, and tips on how to bring out the most expressive, creative, healing movement and dance pieces in a safe, unself-conscious, and liberating manner. Inspiring. Recommended.
