BIOdance: Human Affection at the core of the learning process
affectivity, defined as the capacity to give and receive love, is one of the
objectives pursued by the Bio-dance workshops held every two weeks with mothers
of families and teachers of the Institución Educativa Centro Pedagógico del
Caribe - Pelechúa chapter, in the municipality of Riohacha (La Guajira). They
are part of our project known as "Children, a step to the middle",
aimed at generating the proper school context that allows the formation of
human beings integrated within and with the capacity to integrate harmoniously
into their society.
Bio-dance is the
human growth system created by Chilean psychologist and anthropologist Rolando
Toro, described as "the poetics of the encounter" and whose goal is
to strengthen the genetic potential of human beings - vitality, affectivity,
creativity, sexuality and transcendence -, to integrate them all.
At the same time as
the Bio-dance workshops are carried out, a psychosocial component is being
developed, whose main purpose is to provide guidance that will allow mothers,
parents and teachers to adequately support the child's affective training.
Local specialists in areas of psychology contribute to strengthen spaces in
which, traditionally, there is a meeting of the entire educational community,
such as the PTA’s.
The project cycle
ends with workshops of art and literary creation that facilitate children's
artistic expression and allow, through projective analysis, to monitor the
changes that the project is generating in the lives of families and in school
The initiative is
implemented by the Banana Workers Foundation - FLOTRABAN - and the Social
Management Area of the DAABON Group. It was proposed in order to contribute to
reduce the incidence of school and family aggression situations; the neglect of
children in the first years of the school stage and, in general, absence of
parents from the process of growth.
