Begin the new year diving into the wisdom of your heart. From a physiological perspective the human heart is an organ central to the circulatory system. From an archetypal perspective the human heart is an organ central to our imagination, intellect, and aesthetic sensitivity. The intention for this 4-week series is to explore, express, embody, and bridge into your life, the wisdom of your own heart. Participants will enter the somatic, imaginal, and relational realms of their heart and will learn that there is a connective tissue, a fluid rich membrane, between those realms. At the end of the series participants will gain embodied and creative resources to cultivate a practice of connecting with the heart, speaking from the heart, listening to the heart and, most importantly, trusting the heart’s wisdom in their day-to-day lives and relationships.
No dance or art experience needed.
To get the most out of this online series, 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.
What prior participants have said:
Marialuisa’s work has provided rich nourishment for my mind, body and soul in it’s unique blend of theory, practice and spiritual depth. She offered scientific knowledge as a scaffold through which to enter somatic experience, which in turn acted as a gateway into a deeper connection with myself and the mysteries beyond. Her gentle focused presence, attentive listening and heartfelt aesthetic responses created a safe and trusting space despite the limitations of an online connection. Katy Menell
