Workshop: In the beginning
Sunday 29 November 2020
14:00 to 15:00
The conference looks towards the great service of Dramatherapy today and in the future, while seeing how love and chaos are always present in anything which is living and growing.
It also calls on us to consider the past and at the inspiration, visions and courage of the founders who each in their own way contributed to the making of a therapy which places story, drama, movement and performance as mediators of transformation and healing. They brought through gold.
In this workshop, we will take a mythical journey backwards together to recall the differing treasure resources which underpin each of the various Dramatherapy trainings. We will fly back to the past to retrieve what was important then, and from these strands, co-create our own In the Beginning creation myth to honour what has gone before and include ourselves in the tale.
