Our Bodies, Our Phones
with Marcia Plevin, psychologist, dance movement therapist BC- DMT
One of the biggest challenges for human beings in the digital age is to maintain a positive and healthy body/mind relationship between ourselves and our cell-phone. It is, for many of us, a fairly constant relationship;
in a bag, in a pocket, in our hands, in front of our eyes, in our ears. While digital media has the extraordinary capacity to inform, entertain, socially connect with others all over the world, we can, on the other hand, lose the creative capacity of daydreaming, letting the mind wander, or to hear a sound in the environment that calls us to respond. In this workshop, will explore various facets of living in/out of balance with the cell phone through creative movement, music, dance, silence and sharing our experiences.
