SARA BOAS INTERNATIONAL PRESENTER IN SYDNEY

Venue:The Drill Hall, 1C New Beach Rd, Rushcutters Bay NSW, 2011
Friday 5th of May: One day workshop -
Transcultural Competence in Body-Based Therapies : exploring ‘difference’ through movement
This one-day deep dive into working with cultural diversity provides fresh perspectives on both theory and practice. The session is designed for experienced dance and somatic therapists, as well as those who are new to the field or working in associated professions. Through an intensive experiential engagement, the workshop explores the real challenges and opportunities that we encounter in our work, whether or not our practice is explicitly ‘cross-cultural’. Participants are encouraged to question their own assumptions about culture, identity, ‘difference’ and more, and to develop new ideas and ways of working, all within a safe and supportive learning environment.
The cultural contexts of therapeutic practice – becoming aware of our own and others’ embodied culture.
Saturday and Sunday 6th and 7th of May: Two Day Workshop -
Art Making as Healing: a creative workshop for therapists, coaches, artists and more…
This two-day workshop focuses on the therapeutic value of creation and performance, as well as the artistic potential of therapeutic process. With a focus on dance and improvisational movement, but also incorporating poetry and drawing, the workshop combines experiential exploration with reflection, discussion, and theoretical analysis. It is designed to be of value to a wide range of professionals, whether therapists and other wellness practitioners, coaches and consultants whose work is primarily verbal, or dancers and other artists wishing to expand and deepen their practice. All who are ready for an intensive engagement with the topic are warmly welcome.
