The cultivation of mindfulness in movement therapies is founded on artistic-kinesthetic action, or artistry of the body in movement. The body holds the hidden stories of life experiences and with the aid of movement experientials and specific movement training, the individual can draw these experiences to the surface, giving them shape and form, and change life stories to produce different endings, resulting in therapeutic benefits.
Movement training that is grounded in mindfulness positively impacts psychological and physiological health, improves self regulation, and cultivates the capacity for subjective well-being and self-awareness through attentiveness. Integral to mindful practices that are movement-based is the development of kinesthetic awareness, proprioception and interoception.
Active, autonomous and intentional engagement in motion is core to the sense of feeling in control over actions and their consequences, which in turn is fundamental to the development of a sense of identity and purpose, providing opportunities for self-empowerment and self-transformation.
