James Skalkos will present an introduction to DMT for men in Mullumbimby this Sunday, September 30. Photo dynamicmovementtherapy.org

‘The Art and Science of Meaningful Movement for Men’ is a one-day introduction to Dynamic Movement Therapy (DMT), with James Skalkos, being held on Sunday, September 30 in Mullumbimby.

Organisers say DMT is ‘a multi-disciplinary movement system designed to naturally induce peak states of consciousness, re-enchant the human form and deepen connection to the natural world’.

‘It’s a highly comprehensive training system that works with modern and primal movement practices to progressively develop our essential qualities: strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, awareness, sensitivity, softness and speed.’

Breath is used to relax through each progressive stage, accelerating development, as well as speeding up recovery, nurturing emotional stability, fostering mental clarity and entering a deeper state of awareness.

‘When movement, breath and nature coalesce, the perfect conditions for flow emerge, and we cannot avoid a state of presence where we think, feel and perform our best. Where we access near perfect decision making, moving effortlessly, seamlessly and fluidly from one action, one decision to the next,’ organisers say.

The system is tailored to all skill levels, equally beneficial to someone with no movement experience or advanced level practitioners.

The Art and Science of Meaningful Movement for Men: 9am till 4pm on Sunday September 30 at the We Move Studio, at 3 Stuart Street, Mullumbimby
Cost: $80/$50 concession
