Dance Movement Therapy

This brief article on dance movement therapy in Australia contains a very nice characterization of DMT that could apply to at least the "spirit" of HIPoeces as well. "This brings us to a fundamental tenet of our belief system as dance-movement therapists, namely that we are all embodied persons, that is, that we live and function through our bodies. The body affects mind and feeling, and mind and feeling affect the body: they are integrally connected. This goes against much traditional Western thinking with its separation of mind and body, although recent neuroscientific research is tending to support an integrated view of mind/body (which we dance-movement therapists knew all along!)."
