My personal art and wellbeing journey started in my first years of life and has been the reason, need and inspiration for bringing together the disciplines of dance, visual art and the BodySelf in empirical, exploratory and creative ways, for restoring BodyMind Wellbeing.
Having lived with a genetic 'dis-ease' from an early age, sparked my need for using pain as a way to grow. I explored inhabiting pain in creative ways, extracting beauty, deep healing and transformation. My toolkit included art making, connecting and moving from the BodySelf, connecting with space and others, touching, voicing, discovering, sensing and understanding my own anatomy, expressing and breathing.
The words below express the power of crossing our vulnerable BodySelf doors:
'What is really feared is an open door into a consciousness which leads us back to the old, ancient, infant and mother knowledge of the body, in whose depths lies another form of culture not opposed to nature but instead expressing the full power of nature and our natures'. Susan Griffin
