This workshop will be a creative exploration on returning home to the body and to the heart of what matters in your life through movement and art making. There is a potent connection to be made between our physical, emotional and imaginative experiences. As we make this connection, movement can serve as a metaphor and a narrative that reveals, expresses and transforms. Encountering old stories, we discover artful ways to re-story ourselves, bringing new vision to the life themes that matter to us.
