What is Sesame Drama and Movement Therapy?
“OPEN SESAME! It worked! Ali Baba entered a large cave, lit by light coming from a hole far above. He was surprised at this because he thought there would be only darkness inside and he fumbled at first, expecting to get lost. He made his way to the back, and there it was. Treasure which I cannot describe, but which you would recognise because you know it well.”
Ali Baba and the forty thieves
The name of this therapy symbolically represents the personal search for the key to the treasure that is within each one of us. Most of us do not realise the treasure that we carry within and that the answers to all our questions live within us. This therapy aspires to accompany us in finding the key to accessing these riches, making the unconscious conscious.
Sesame Drama and Movement Therapy is a methodology of dramatherapy, which is one of the existing arts therapies. Arts therapies use creativity as a tool for expression and inner exploration for personal development. Depending on the creativity modality used, there are different branches: music therapy, dance and movement therapy, art therapy and dramatherapy, among others.
Dramatherapy is the use of drama and theatre for therapeutic purposes. The streams within it use these tools for different purposes. In the case of Sesame Drama and Movement Therapy, which is what I offer you, we use metaphors, symbols and images present in stories and mythology for personal development. These can help us bring out difficulties, obstacles or traumas from the unconscious, which we will work through using the technique that best suits you, the client. The techniques that we will use to dive into our unconscious and work on those emotions and problems consciously in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment are based on Jung's analytical psychology.
