The journal of Dance, Movement & Spiritualities is creating a very special issue this summer, sharing the embodied art of languaging and toning Somatic Movement Dance Meditations. Leading somatic movement dance meditation often lies at the heart of many somatic movement modalities. This special issue offers a beautiful poetic spiritual space for academics and practitioners to share how they create language and tone movement processes. We welcome images, poetry, and spacious meditations, as well as sections where practitioners share their frameworks and influences. We are particularly interested in the spiritual framework underpinning and shaping the meditation and look forward to receiving articles that share how eastern philosophies often interweave with experiential anatomy. We are very interested in documenting the embodied art of such processes, attending to subtle details, such as tone and language.


Deadline for submissions: 20 November 2021

Why not invite a movement meditation to arise, tone and fall on the academic page this summer!
