“Stillness is where creativity and solutions are found.” ~ Meister Eckhart
Join us for a 4-week class series and dive into creative inquiries to embody radical presence, develop self-compassion, and unearth your body’s resiliency. Workshop features the Tamalpa Life/Art® methodology: embodied anatomy, somatic movement, drawing, creative writing, and improvisation.
Participants will gain somatic and creative practices that can be further developed and integrated into daily life. Aspects of the Polyvagal Theory will be used and applied to support self-regulation and provide the ground for the creative work. No dance or art experience needed. Please prepare a comfortable space to move in with access to your online device and a reliable internet connection. Also, have art supplies ready at hand for drawing activities, and paper and pen for journaling and creative writing exercises.
