7 Wednesdays: April 13 – May 25 | 10 – 11:45AM PDT | $130/series
Although Indigenous ancestors on every continent of this planet lived intimately with the natural world, modern technologically-driven societies have become divorced from, and done damage to, the Web of Life that sustains us.
Many people feel grief, anger, and hopelessness about the environmental crises we face now. Through the ancient language of expressive arts, we can begin to re-enliven our relationships with the animate Earth and discover resources to fuel personal and collective activism. Engaging in dance/movement, drawing, and poetic writing, we will invite the elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water, as well as creatures with four legs, wings and fins, to share their wisdom about creating ecological wellbeing with us. Weekly small group sharing will help to build a sense of creative community.
To get the most out of this online class, please prepare a comfortable space to move in with access to your online device and a stable internet connection. Please have art supplies ready at hand for drawing activities, and paper and pen for journaling and creative writing exercises.
Please note: Tamalpa does not record nor permit the recording of any classes or workshops due to the sensitive and sometimes vulnerable nature of the work, and to protect student privacy.
