Chih-Hsien Lin, a native Taiwanese, is a dancer, movement philosopher and creator, and an EMDR-trained clinical professional counselor specialized in dance/movement therapy and somatic approaches, currently working with lovely humans at her solo practice Embodied Way Psychotherapy. Over the arc of her career both artistically and clinically, she has worked extensively with a diverse population, with primary focus on the intersection of embodiment, culture, trauma, attachment and relationships, expression, authenticity, grief and loss, and humility. As an immigrant artist, Chih-Hsien works passionately with an integrative and authentic sense of self and movement directions. She forges continuous collaborations into inclusive embodiment and emotional experiences in her own being and dance making; her movement language reflects a rich cultural bearing from traditional Asian ethnic dances and martial arts to a vast array of somatic modern integrations. She creates circular worlds of kinesthesia, juxtaposition, and reflection, elucidating the subtlety, complexity, and fluidity of living. In addition to finding a dance home through working with Khecari for a decade, Chih-Hsien has co-funded and been a part of the IS/LAND Performance Collective, a group of interdisciplinary artists who identify as Asians and AAPI, to advocate for, educate, reflect, be with, and reimagine Asian American history and presence in the US through performing arts.
