The Institute for Expressive Analysis is pleased to announce the second in a series of unique, experiential seminars that are designed to integrate the theory and processes of expressive analysis with contemporary technology and practices. This seminar will demonstrate the integration of AntiGravity® Yoga and expressive analytic processes as a way to further promote and understand the link between mind and body.
This Seminar is designed specifically to facilitate the transformation between physical, visual, and emotional experience and will be conducted in two parts. First, participants will be led through a series of AntiGravity® Yoga exercises, led by Christopher Harrison, the Creator of AntiGravity Entertainment and Fitness. Mr. Harrison, the father of aerial yoga, has taken his techniques all around the world to great acclaim. He has prepared an offering expressly for associates from the Institute for Expressive Analysis. You will experience a physical class with hyper mental focus, proprioceptive (agility) training, deep stretching, zero-compression inversions, levity conditioning, and floating cocoon meditations in the Harrison AntiGravity Hammock.
The ancient practice of yoga has always facilitated self-development via connecting body, mind, and spirit. Professor Robert Wolf, President of IEA, will then lead a guided imagery exercise designed to create internal visualizations of this experience, followed by an experiential exercise utilizing creative art materials to externalize and process these visualizations.
"When you open up space in the body, you open up space in the mind, as they are interconnected,” says Christopher Harrison. AntiGravity Techniques are all about re-establishing the body/mind connection and obtaining balance in one’s life. Expressive analytic techniques are designed to create a bridge from visceral/physical experience to cognitive/emotional awareness leading to insight and integration as unconscious material is externalized and understood through the process of creative expression.
Professor Robert Wolf is a licensed psychoanalyst and creative art therapist with over 35 years of experience in private clinical practice, supervision, and teaching in graduate art therapy programs including The College of New Rochelle, Pratt Institute, and several psychoanalytic training institutes. He has published widely in the field of creative expressive therapy and, as a professional artist, his work has been exhibited and published internationally.
