Embodied Theology: A Practical Workshop for Faith Leaders
January 12-13, 2-5pm in the chapel at Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, CA
Workshop Description: The goal of this workshop is to provide faith leaders with practical experience in embodied faith practices, such as moving prayers and liturgical dance. Students will leave with the ability to develop their own moving prayer practices, choreograph works that could be performed in faith communities, and choreograph liturgical movement that can be taught to a faith community. Each day will begin with a warm-up and close with a cool-down. On the first day, we will focus on a small piece of the history of dance in faith communities, followed by learning a few already choreographed works. Students will be sent home with a brief movement assignment to complete before the next class. On the second day, the focus will be on sharing our experiences with the movement homework assignment followed by practical exercises in developing choreography that can be performed, shared, or taught.
