In our upcoming Pilot in Cyprus, I am planning to include body movement in the workshops. I strongly support that through the exploration of body movement we can connect with our feelings, emotions and understand different aspects that creates our identity. From my personal experience when I work with groups from different background, ethnicities and cultures I chose to start the sessions with physical work, with no words.
Of course, the workshop its always designed based on the needed objectives. I use movement to build trust and an alternative communication. Through the non-verbal communication work you offer the space to the group to loosen up and start feeling comfortable to explore more sensitive matters through verbal expression.
