We have packaged this pair of advanced, intensive modules in twin courses in such a way that you can go through all the Bothmer exercises in the first session, go home and practice for a couple of months, and then come back in the second session to deepen your ability and understanding.
In Part II, we will add the finishing touches. If you choose, you can take a shot at the certification exam.

Study the reflexes, their purposes, how to recognize them in their disguises, and how to coordinate them into movement skills that help children conduct their lives in a way that makes sense.
Monday April 9th, 2018 at 7:30pm - Tuesday April 10th at 5:00pm.
Through the lack of healthy movement opportunities in modern day, sedentary life styles, children are not weaving the threads of their innate movement patterns together into a supportive whole. Many problems in school (ADHD, behavior, learning, and social challenges, for example) have spatial components that leave the child un-centered, at loose ends... a victim of an onslaught of sensory bombardment and subsequent automated, yet unconscious reactions.
Come join us as we study the reflexes, their purposes, how to recognize them in their disguises, and how to coordinate them into movement skills that help children conduct their lives in a way that makes sense.

The young individual will be introduced to the disciplines of fencing, writing, and archery where goal-orientedness, word-smithing and social interaction pave the paths for sovereignty, inventiveness, and independence.
The elegance, expression, and exactness of these three disciplines will remain with your child long after they have returned home from this life-altering experience.

In the early 1980s, Thom Schaefer and Jaimen McMillan co-developed PACT, a pentathlon model for 5th-grade school children, that has been incorporated into the curricula of Waldorf, public, and private school settings. Thom and Jaimen have teamed up, together with Spacial Dynamics instructors from around the world, and have applied this model in international peace projects in Greece, the Middle East, Ecuador, China and the US. This PACT model (Pentathlon, Arts, Communication, and Truce) uses movement, art, and non-violent communication to go beyond flags, break down stereotypes, and build up connections based upon movements that are true.
