Let's Collaborate

What does that look like?

HCAT utilizes a therapeutic theatre process [called MWT] that contains evidence-based practices for groups and individuals to address personal concerns as well as issues within their community. As all people possess an individual culture, MWT focuses on the individual’s perspective relative to community relationships. Performances may be from an already-existing script or devised from the lived experiences of the performers.

Mindful Warm-Up > Presenting Concerns > Embodied Interventions > Reflection > Mindful Closure

How it Works

STAGES 1 AND 2 - Mindfulness Development: Learn

image43

Basic self-awareness exercises for developing self- knowledge including:

  • Mindful Breathing Techniques
  • Mindful Visualization & Meditation
  • Mindful Sensory Practice

STAGES 3 AND 4 - Embodied Interventions: Practice

image44

Shared stories and intercultural dialogue allow for the embodiment of real and imagined situations to address present concerns. This could include using art, drama, music, dance, poetry and more as a means of expression regarding the concern. Role training also occurs during this section, as we move toward self-realization & answering: who do we intend to be within our community?

STAGES 5 AND 6 - Change, As Performance: Express

image45

The individual and group’s desires to self-actualize particular values discovered within the space culminates in a final performance. We want to share the diplomatic solutions within our community as an offering of perspective. The goal for systemic change - at the individual and community level - is made evident in the final performance.
