Dance: Moving Bodily Beyond Dualism

  • Steven Félix-Jäger
Part of the Christianity and Renewal - Interdisciplinary Studies book series (CHARIS)


Body knowledge is a prelinguistic form of communication that is needed for human holism. As such, this chapter approaches embodiment as a foundational element of a pneumatological aesthetics. While dance is a powerful performative mode of communication, liturgical dance is an embodied way of knowing God and others. This chapter seeks to elucidate how embodied practices can be understood theologically from a perspective of renewal, because the renewal movements regularly engage embodied practices through worship.
