Diversity and Inclusion
We welcome people from all backgrounds, all ethnicities, all genders, all social classes, people with diverse abilities and physical capacities.
We recognise that there are many different gifts and many different types of pain that stem from each of our backgrounds. Movement Medicine aims to be a space where you can develop your gifts and attend to the pain.
We don’t offer hypnosis or medication. Movement Medicine is not a religion.
We do not claim that our work or perspectives are “the truth”. For us, this work is a useful and evolving roadmap for healing our relationships with ourselves, each other and with life. Likewise our school is a learning organisation, which is itself continuously evolving as our understandings of the inner and outer worlds develop.
Movement Medicine is a powerful and catalytic healing practice. In order for you to benefit from this work, you will need to be able and willing to take responsibility for yourself, emotionally, physically and psychologically whilst travelling through some deep experiences on the dance floor. Sufficient internal and external support systems need to be in place ideally before you begin so that this work that can be usefully integrated into your life.
Movement Medicine offers a methodology for embodied learning and self-development. We don’t claim to be able to solve the challenges, difficulties or dilemmas of your life, but we do offer practices and perspectives that can help and empower you to better do this for yourself.
Movement is medicine and this medicine is body-based. For those people whose histories mean that being in the body is frightening or overwhelming, this journey will need to be taken slowly and in conjunction with individual support from a professional such as a coach, counsellor, psychotherapist, mentor etc. In certain cases, people find that there is therapeutic one to one work that they need to do before coming to Movement Medicine.
It is the sole responsibility of you, as the student, to be upfront about your history and any related concerns or pre-existing life challenges when applying for a course.
