“Stillness is where creativity and solutions are found.” ~ Meister Eckhart
Join us for a 4-week class series and dive into creative inquiries to embody radical presence, develop self-compassion, and unearth your body’s resiliency this Spring.
Workshops feature the Tamalpa Life/Art® methodology: somatic movement, drawing, creative writing, improvisation, and ritual.
Each one of these workshops provides participants with somatic and creative practices that can be further developed and integrated into the daily life. Aspects of the Polyvagal Theory will be used and applied to support self-regulation and provide the ground for the creative work.
No dance or art experience needed.
