This integrated experience will include sound, body, meditations and visualizations to help us beyond the overwhelm and into greater creative presence.
What is it that we are feeling in the bigger sense of the collective during this pandemic? What are ways we can access our deeper fears? What does it mean to be present in a pandemic?
In this workshop we will examine what it is to be fully alive, embracing all the feelings and help each other navigate fears and restore a sense of vitality. Though body movement, sound, ritual, and mediation, we will create a space where we can address and transform a feeling of inertia or overwhelm.
