Minimum 8 participants, maximum 20 participants
Registration deadline is Thursday, September 30.
Movement is our first language - the way we continually orient to the world, learn, and adapt throughout our lives. In this workshop, we explore together how we choose to move through the world in relationship to each other, and experience other options available to us in order to increase our ability to enjoy life and move freely. Interactive experiments, based on our shared developmental movements, reintroduce us to how our feelings live in our bodies and are expressed through the movement between us.
This heightened awareness plays a significant role in how we interact with others and the choices we make in our daily lives. Guided group processing helps us share our discoveries and learn together, providing a sense of belonging. This common ground supports us in meeting the challenges of stress, loneliness, and loss during this profoundly disorienting time.
