~ Intensive Retreat on Star Dance Farm ~

Sunday June 26th – Friday July 1st, 2022

Just outside of Ann Arbor, Michigan

As our society becomes increasingly hostile to the incarnational needs of the children, our presence and offerings for the children become even more crucial in their development. This intensive is designed for early childhood educators seeking to deepen their understanding and practice of developmental movement, speech and singing in the mood of the fifth to support the young child. Wilma Ellersiek created a body of work as an antidote to the ills of modern life. We will immerse ourselves in the essence of this work – the rhythms, rhymes, singing in the mood of the fifth, gestures, breath, moving plays, and loving touch, designed specifically to meet the needs of the young child.

Join us for delightful and insightful experiences:

~ The Sacrament of Working Young Children
~ The Madonna Series ~ Cosmic nutrition
~ Touch, dancing hands, large movement plays
~ Therapeutic aspects of the gesture work
~ Singing in the mood of the fifth
~ Spacial Dynamics®
