A gently guided somatic and expressive movement exploration for EVERY BODY.
Re-membering and re-discovering body as creative map and resource.
: something created, either animate or inanimate
: a human being
: used to refer to a life form that is unusual or imaginary
Together, we invite ourselves into the realms of imagination, creativity and innate intelligence through awareness + breath practices, gesture, free movement/dance, sensing, visualization and creative inquiry + practice (drawing, creative writing, poetry, etc.)
We aspire to resource a deeper awareness and understanding of our embodied anatomy and personal mythology and to invite and integrate fresh perspectives of our inner worlds.
These explorations are crafted to awaken the poetic and parasympathetic praises of body, nervous system, psyche and collective web of embodiment.
We begin with exploring a general theme together (an organ, body system, concept/theme, etc.), weaving a collective web of imagination and then enter into a contemplative solo experience of free movement and transitioning into a creative inquiry + practice. This process allows the opportunity for us to intuitively access the somatic process through art, to land into a tangible perspective of our inner worlds to interact and communicate with.
No dance or art experience required
Art supplies provided + BYO
(we suggest a journal, newsprint/drawing pad, pastels, pencil crayons)
this offering is deeply inspired by the embodied wisdom and works of Liz Koch, Etienne Piersman and the Tamalpa Life/Art Process®
