Abstract

My intention for this chapter is to share knowledge of neuroscience with professionals, colleagues and students of dramatherapy in an accessible way and to explain my view of how the two disciplines relate and collaborate. Demand for creative action learning is increasing as people feel the benefits of knowledge acquisition through embodied experience. Learning experientially involves a holistic experience and automatic brain collaboration. Collaboration by way of a feeling sense of brain and body enlists extensive neural networks in many parts of the brain.
