Embodiology® is a six-tier transdisciplinary methodology that results in practitioners being able to create on-the-spot, with or for others, with mindful dexterity. The Embodiology® methodology creates a super-highway to understanding and practicing improvisation, as deßmonstrated in African and African diasporic practices, and it is also an alternative method for teaching how to work within stage, site specific, social action and cinematic environments. Embodiology® is a registered trademark owned by Dr. S. Ama Wray and as such demonstrates a commitment, as a product of action research, to return a royalty payment to the Ewe community in Ghana each time its principles are shared in full or in part.
