Meaning in Movement

Meaning in Movement is a workshop for stroke survivors and their partners, first introduced at North Memorial Stroke Center in Minneapolis. Participants are invited to share their life stories and experiences as stroke survivors. These stories are translated into movement to help find expression for the complex feelings and pressures that result from a stroke. Participants leave these workshops with a sense of accomplishment and pride in their commitment to live a full and generous life. Similarly, the stroke survivors’ care partners experience a new appreciation for the survivor as their support is re-emphasized.
