A collaboration between somatic expressive arts therapist Rosario Sammartino and cellist Joshua McClain, the Tamalpa Be Moved workshop invites you to journey into your body’s own dynamic melodies, dive into feeling and imagination, and move to the rhythm of discovery. Let the powerful vibrations of the cello, combined with the evocative teachings of the Tamalpa Life/Art Process open you up to the stories your body has to tell.
No previous experience in dance/art needed.

Joshua McClain is a renowned cellist and composer. He is best known for his unbridled style of cello playing which, using a looping pedal and effects processor, creates intense, otherworldly soundscapes. Joshua released his most recent album, Coming Home, in February 2018 with critical acclaim. The album was inspired by a month long ayahuasca retreat with Shipibo shamans in Peru. He has since focused his approach on how music and sound can be a catalyst for change. Joshua created a highly popular free live stream concert series during the Pandemic of 2020, called “Morning Cello,” which has reached millions of people all over the world. Joshua has toured and performed extensively in North America as well as Germany, France, Japan, West Africa, and Argentina.
