The winter solstice marks a transition between seasons, inviting us to turn inward and make space for renewal. In this end-of-the-year movement workshop, we respond somatically, shift with the changing rhythms of our bodies, and slow down. Movement Ritual and Dance Explorations weave in sensations, feelings, and images, as we find inspiration from darkness and light, honoring the transitions between.

Participants will explore somatic movements devised by Anna Halprin that help relax the mind, expand range of movement, and spark creative expression.

Drawing and writing give voice to our inner landscape and acknowledge a wide range of experiences. Open to all. No dance or art experience needed.

Please have a comfortable space to move and drawing and writing materials on hand.
