“Working with Madelanne was a transformative experience for me. She was able to provide an ongoing safety that allowed me to face my fear of using my voice … I also appreciated the relational component of Madelanne’s work because it helped me gain insight into my own patterns and allowed me to make shifts in the way I relate to people and myself. Madelanne brought authenticity, sensitivity, acceptance, and her big heart to each workshop! She is a real gift.”
“I was terrified about the class, and I also had strong sense that this could help me work through my inhibition around self-expression. I am incredibly grateful for having the courage to show up. Almost immediately, I could tell that this would be an invaluable experience, and I was right! … I experienced a deep sense of connection to my body, my inner wisdom, and my creativity.”
What is “Movement in Relationship?”
Movement in Relationship (MIR) is a group practice that supports participants to explore and express their moment-to-moment experience of Self through vocal sound and body movement in an interactive environment of “deep play.” In each session, MIR moves gradually from the individual to the collective, offering participants time to connect with Self, and then to tap into and embody the arising — and ever changing! — matrix of the group experience.
Movement in Relationship groups enable participants to contact the non-verbal dynamics at the root of how they show up in relationship, to experiment and play with new ways of being, to witness others and be witnessed, and to hold a kind-hearted, experiential inquiry into what it means to be in community. Each session is structured to provide optimal safety and support, while offering participants freedom to connect deeply with their own experience and process. Sessions typically include: playful exercises that cultivate freedom of expression in vocal sound and body movement; mindfulness practices that support the interweaving of consciousness, body movement, and vocal sound; Individual and group sound and movement explorations; and, skillful communication practices.

MOVEMENT IN RELATIONSHIP: A Fortnightly Practice Group
“Group Transformation Through Deep Play”
Movement in Relationship (MIR) is a group embodiment practice that supports participants to explore and express their moment-to-moment experience of Self through vocal sound and body movement in an interactive environment of embodied play. MIR groups are an experiential practice ground in which to lovingly receive and transform body-based relational dynamics arising in the Self and the group, and to cultivate our capacity to build inclusive, profoundly collaborative group cultures.
Each session is structured to provide optimal safety and support, while offering participants freedom to connect with their own experience and process. In these 5 fortnightly sessions, participants will be invited to explore self-expression through sound and movement, to experiment and play with new ways of being, to witness others and be witnessed, and to hold a kind-hearted, experiential inquiry into what it means to practice Body-Informed, interconnected ways of being.
