THE 'WHY' OF THIS MEDICINE
David Mooney, Faculty Member of the School of Movement Medicine, has created a newly-designed online 6-week small group dance journey grounded in the practices of Movement Medicine, specifically designed to support you to respond as creatively as possible to the opportunities and challenges of the unique times we are living in.
This collective journey will be intentionally small, open to 24 dancers. No prerequisites or previous experience in Movement Medicine is required. Whatever your condition, age, gender, or circumstances you are very welcome to register. David’s intention is to create an intimate space for dancers to feel held, safe, and heard, to learn, practice, and strengthen deep and healing processes to help support and creatively resource you in the present time and beyond.
In short: INNER ALCHEMIST: 2 is designed to help you reconnect to what is important and support you in accessing the resources of Movement Medicine, to wake up from the dream we have been living and push the reset button onto new dreams.
ARE YOU CALLED TO THIS MEDICINE?
~ More connection to others, to nature, to the Great Mystery ~ would this be helpful to you right now?
~ Learning new tools to help creatively respond to the times we are living in ~ does this feel resonant with you?
~ Exploring the power of movement, the healing of connection in a shared committed group and the specific medicine of Movement Medicine dance practice ~ is this a YES in your body, and can you commit to all 6 consecutive Sunday afternoons?
THE 'WHAT' OF THIS MEDICINE
The intention of this journey is to reconnect you to the wisdom of living from the heart and will deepen your connection to yourself, your creativity and integrity as well as enliven your relationship with life on all levels. Movement Medicine has roots in indigenous shamanic wisdom as well as contemporary therapeutic pathways such as Gestalt and latest developments in Neuroscience.
Together, we will create a supportive community to journey together. There will be support groups, inter-module exercises and guided recorded practices so you can integrate these practices into your life and have the freedom and empowerment of self leadership.
You will learn the 'Alchemy of Healing' Movement Medicine process to embody, express, release and let go of stuck emotions, thought patterns or behaviours to make space for a more resourced, creative response to what is alive in you, to bring forth and allow you to make your contribution to the history being written.
WEEK 1. Awakening the Dancer | A practice for connection, expression and dancing the creative force of life within.
WEEK 2: Dancing the Elements | For resourcing and inspiration in the dance with the deep and dynamic resourcing of connecting with qualities of earth, fire, water, air and ether.
Tree of Life Practice | For grounding, cultivation of presence in body, heart, mind and deepening relationship with the archetypes of Yin and Yang.
WEEK 3: Dancing the Mesa | Activate your circle for strengthening the integrity of your boundaries and your capacity to focus.
WEEK 4: Learning the Alchemy of Healing Process | A core Movement Medicine alchemical practice guided by David Mooney with music and clear facilitation to embody, express, release and renew with the fresh energy of creativity and connection specific to you and your journey. You will explore the 5 dimensions: Self • Others • Community • Ancestors & Descendants • and Spirit.
WEEK 5: Sacred Ceremony | Dancing with the practices we have learned and practiced.
WEEK 6: Integration | We set our intentions to alchemize what we have learned and experienced to cultivate creative responses to the opportunities and challenges we face at this time. We’ll collectively push the reset button to begin living a new dream.

We will be holding space for four scholarships for those in need. (Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know your confidential circumstances and what you can afford at this time).
~ We will need you to commit to attend all 6 sessions to the best of your ability so that we can depend on a safe and stable container -- and others in your small group can depend on your presence. We are all important in this practice-- each of us is an important element of this constellation.
~ Inner Alchemist:2 is accredited and applicable to School of Movement Medicine hours (12) if you decide to pursue this practice more deeply in the future.
~ Registration is open April 14th- April 22nd. First come first served. Please register early if you are called to join us!
~ If you have a question please contact Carrie at email@example.com or Allison at firstname.lastname@example.org
~ We invite you to please consider this to create an optimum experience:
Familiarize yourself with Zoom, download the app, and take care of the technical aspects before the course, so we can begin on the first day without spending time on tech troubleshooting.
Create a safe space for dancing-- whether on a floor or carpet-- make sure the space is clear and free of hazards.
Create a sacred space with objects that represent the elements, perhaps images or symbols of your loved ones past present and future. Candles, sage, lights, whatever feels sacred for you.
Create some private space so that people who are sharing cannot be heard by unfamiliar people so we can be authentic and express themselves safely.
Source a good set of bluetooth headphones or a speaker -- the better the sound quality the more you will be able to enjoy David’s wonderful music mixes and guidance.
