The human body is beautiful to behold.  It is awesome,  inspiring and whole.  Yet, as clinicians we see people whose body/minds have been in harms way for long periods of time; sometimes a lifetime. Explicit processes are the bedrock of language, thought, and cognitive learning. Implicit processes drive emotional learning, form the bedrock of relational patterns and serve as the affective core for a sense of self.  This process operates beneath conscious awareness in automatic, immediate, and effortless ways. Intuition provides raw data for conscious deliberation to follow-up, seek feedback and discernment.  The emotionally charged areas between explicit and implicit experience are ripe for change, can be witness in the body, and is the focus of our didactic and experiential movement work together.
Please wear comfortable clothing, as this an experiential as well as theoretical presentation. 

1. To experience explicit and implicit processes.
2. To define and experience the Jungian concept of the Complex.
3. To define and experience Authentic Movement Processes.
