Life on Land PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Life on Land free pdf Emilie Conrad's unique approach to movement education, health and healing is as varied and deeply textured as her life story. "Life on Land" gives us both, interwoven to create a picture of the author's own bodily and social education, and its evolution into the modality known as Continuum, which she teaches internationally. The book is a heady blend of experiential knowledge of her own body as it collapsed under the pressures of life and then came back stronger, and Conrad's revolutionary theories of the body-mind frontier and how we can access it for healing and self-knowledge. This true story of Conrad's childhood, coming of age and discovery of dance and other doorways to self-actualization culminates with the maturation of her theory of movement. Now in her seventies and still going strong with a full schedule of workshops and classes, Emilie Conrad puts her ideas and insights in her own full-length book for the first time.

About Emilie Conrad

Emilie Conrad, the founder of Continuum, was born and raised in New York City where she studied ballet and Afro-Haitian dance. After moving to Los Angeles in 1963, she began teaching at the Actors Studio, where her novel approach to movement helped performing artists and led to her choreographing and directing numerous plays and performance works. In 1974, Conrad pioneered a protocol for spinal cord injury, and from 1974 to 1979 she was Movement Specialist in a research study conducted by Dr. Valerie Hunt at UCLA. This groundbreaking study demonstrated that fluid, primary movement is essential in our ability to innovate. Enhancing these fundamental movements has a potential to create a rich intrinsic environment that brings forth new insights in our understanding of the human body and its potential to create alternate systems.Considered a visionary in movement education, Conrad's inspiring work has been incorporated by an international audience of professionals from fields such as Rolfing, Zero balancing, Hellerwork, Craniosacral therapy, Osteopathy, physical therapy, dance, Psychoneuroimmunology, and physical fitness. She teaches Continuum workshops around the world.
