Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending Dr. Ama Wray’s @embodiology workshop. Embodiology begins with the most important movement in the body…breath. Dr. Wray developed this practice through research into indigenous art practices in West Africa. It generates empathy, courage, and joy, restoring a body mind awareness that is abundantly creative, confident, and calm.” For weeks now, I have been searching for an outlet to reconnect with my body. A physical expression that mimics the flow and fearlessness I feel when I sketch. This workshop did that and more. This morning, I woke up with a keen sense of awareness of my physical self. I could feel aches in parts of my body I haven’t felt in awhile. My chest felt open. My mind clear. And my body sensitized to the free-flow movements expressed.

“It’s a long story, but here’s a quick snippet of what happened when I tried dancing with @s.amawray via @embodiology Keep reading to learn what I (a non-dancing techie) have learned (recently) about Breathing, Intentional Movements and how I apply it to my work/life. If you’re interested in more stories, let me know ... I’ve got plenty.

From @kishau

“Because EMBODIOLOGY uses traditional African improvisation and rhythmic structures, delight and creativity flowed back into my veins with the vitality and freshness I had been longing for decades. At age 69, through EMBODIOLOGY I abandoned outmoded ideas about myself and refreshed my spirit with the joy of collective creativity. What stays with me is the joy and delight I feel as I return to dance as an elder.”

Janice R.

Dr. Wray’s passion and commitment underlie the entire workshop and help transport to attendees to new places of exploration and creativity. I highly recommend this experience for any leadership team.
