Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary
Using a contemporary synthesis of Jungian and Post-Jungian imaginal perspectives, animate ecological phenomenology, somatics and recent scholarship in dance movement and progressive spiritualities, this book discusses how the promotion of a fluid relationship between imagination and movement can bring the mover back into relationship with soul and spirit.
Main Description
Drawing on Jungian and post-Jungian literature, as well as imaginal and animistic theories, this unique book proves how the promotion of a fluid relationship between imagination and movement can bring the mover back into the relationship with the soul and spirit. This connection is an essential and powerful resource for healing the psyche. The book provides a rich in-depth digest of theory and produces clear frameworks for applying transpersonal theories to Dance Movement Psychotherapy (DMP), illustrating the use and value of transpersonal perspectives through detailed case studies. Providing spiritual, soulful and mythological perspectives on DMP rooted in theory and practice, this book will be essential reading for dance movement psychotherapists, dance and dramatherapy students, dance movement therapists and expressive arts therapists.
