New york dance therapy

JULY 19-22nd 2018



Join us for a weekend of moving meditation, laughter, and lobster!  Using the body to facilitate a healing process, we can find renewal through movement, stillness, and community.

Studio sessions will be supplemented by didactic seminars focusing on questions arising from the personal explorations, as well as applications relevant to LCAT modalities, clinical settings, and professional/creative work.


Situated right on the Pleasant River, stay in a fully restored 1860s era Victorian home in the heart of the Maine wild blueberry country. Enjoy community meals, including a traditional Maine lobster dinner! The workshop will be held at Columbia Falls’ Union Hall, a 1890s Congregational Church that was gifted to the community.
