About Madeline Black’s Immersive Body Training
Regularly, after teaching a half or full day workshop, movement teachers ask me, “how can I apply this to my client who is….” In chat groups, so many questions arise, such as, what to do when I see this with my client. I know the movement teachers are well educated and experienced and still asking these questions. I decided that a new approach to offering more than education and new exercises, the teachers needed the space and time to build on what they know to evolve their process.
Three years ago, I began teaching an immersive body training program. My process in developing the program was an organic one. As teachers came together to study and practice with me, they expressed the desire for more time and more practice. My four-part series came to life. It began with “Gather” then evolved further into “Encompass”.
My vision bringing teachers into true integration and practical know-how is “Constellation”. I have been waiting for the right time to offer “Constellation”. The right time is when I felt the community of teachers, who complete and practice “Gather” and “Encompass”, were ready. The time is 2020. And beyond “Constellation” the future brings “Metaphora” the culmination experience where we transfer our work with each other in a healthy and healing environment.
To immerse your self in this way of being is embracing the whole body, person and spirit of movement. Then transmuting your body as well as your client’s into better health and movement.
