Moving, feeling, and imagining are all vital parts of expressing ourselves. This series of classes introduces the Tamalpa Life/Art Process developed by Anna and Daria Halprin and draws upon the integrative movement work of Anna Halprin. We will apply movement, drawing, and writing to explore different parts of the self, and uncover the places that intersect and connect.
