Deborah Jane Milton
Instructors from Cuyamungue Institute

With a doctorate in Human Development from Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania , Deborah has been facilitating creative expression and inspirational workshops in natural settings for more than thirty years. An artist, mentor, eco-psychologist, risk-taker and mother of four, grandmother of eight, she moved to Montana in 1980 from Philadelphia . She found her retreat center, Athanor Arts, in the wild country north of Missoula in 1999 and thought she would stay there for the remainder of her life. But fate, luck, passion and purpose play tricks and in 2009 she moved to the Pacific Northwest . Here, she is immersed in human community, family, and the inspirational fecundity of this watery world and the northern temperate rainforest. In February 1993, after spending two months in solitude, she discovered Felicitas Goodmans book Where the Spirits Ride the Wind and her life changed forever. She met both Felicitas and Belinda as quickly as she could and was certified to teach Postures in 1996 and has been doing so ever since. Interest builds quickly now in the Northwest, perhaps because the tidal wave of cultural change is mounting and the call increases for integrating the body/mind and expanding awareness of our interconnectivity. Ongoing groups are beginning here and the first regional masked dance happened in August 2011. Another is scheduled for August 2012. You can read a chronicle of our experience on her blog: beginning with a post on 9/5/11. As Deborahs relationship to postures has evolved over the years, she finds them infinitely adaptable, always surprising and richly integrative. She is who she is in the world because of this connection to spirit(s) fostered by the Cuyamungue Method.
