Program

A safe and welcoming retreat to explore your body image, the burdens in your life and move towards mind and body liberation. Often people feel lonely and scared as they struggle working through these issues alone. Your body is not a problem to be fixed, and your burden’s don’t define you. Your story is your own and this retreat can support you in reclaiming your body narratives, unmasking burdens, and becoming the storyteller of your own life.

Naming and letting go of past stories like shame or guilt, allows you to find a new sense of liberation and freedom in your mind and in your body. Where should you begin? Is your life filled with busyness and distractions with barely anytime to breathe? Do you want to begin to make peace with your body, your burdens, and your relationship with food?

What is drama therapy?

Drama therapy is an experiential, active, and embodied way to connect and explore parts of yourselves. Drama therapy advances the participants insight, empathy, stabilization of moods, and anxiety and helps to facilitate healthier, and more connecting relationships. It uses role, story, metaphor, and the body to help people tell their unique narratives, solve problems, and make new choices in life.

Drama therapy allows attendees to go as deeply as they want in their healing process, or as slowly as they need to feel safe-enough to look at challenging areas in their life. The work is compassionate, challenging, moving, eye-opening, healing, and transforming.

Retreat location

They will choose the venue when they see how many register. The location will be within a 40 minute commute to Cambridge, MA. There are some amazing retreat centers and homes that they can book. They hope you will attend. They have pricing with lodging and a commuters rate. The commuters rate is based on you arriving by 08:00 a.m. and staying each day till program ends at dinner time (06:00 p.m.) Again the commute will be within a 40 minute drive.

With all those firsts, it’s easy to understand that Boston ranked fifth in the world for innovation in 2017. Some of the “innovation friendly” factors include cultural assets, education centers, transportation, and biking or walking accessibility. Of course, the city’s world-renowned research institutions like MIT, Harvard, and Tufts add to this cutting-edge clout, as do the thousands of digital startups and entrepreneurs that have set up operations here.

As the above innovation index notes, “Boston is a place where you can have serendipitous connections, unlike U.S. cities where you can’t get out of your car.” It’s true—with its small scale, extensive public transit, network of bike paths, and abundant park space, Boston is a city built for meeting new people, sharing ideas, and collaboration.
