Cultivating the Container,
Deepening the Peer Practice
October 14th, 2023
Lynn Wylie Yoga Studio
(202-1600 Bay St.) Victoria, BC
Val Campbell, a friend and colleague, has generously offered her services at half price to make this workshop more affordable, in support of the ongoing practice of Authentic Movement and the VPG.
The aim of the workshop is to offer time to enter deeply into our practice together. Our main aspiration is to cultivate a strong container with a shared vocabulary and understanding so that the fresh start with new members begins with a clarity of intention for our collective monthly practice time.
The day will include:
-Moving and witnessing practice
-Principles and guidelines of the role of the witness
-Creating a strong container as a Peer group.
-Practical details and time for group discussion and questions.
Val Campbell is an educator, actor, director and movement specialist. She leads workshops and retreats combining her decades of experience in theatre and transformational modalities. She is a long-time member of the Guild of Embodied Practice (1996) under the mentorship of Judith Koltai and founder of the Calgary Authentic Movement Peer Practice Group. She is an Associate Professor Emerita – Drama, School of Creative and Performing Arts at the University of Calgary.
