Explore Your Body’s Own Creative Intelligence – 1 day ONLINE workshop.

This participatory Live Online one day Tamalpa workshop with Lian Wilson, RSMT/RSME is an opportunity to connect and explore your body’s own creative Intelligence using our approach to movement based expressive arts.

A mixture of Somatic Movement, Mark making/Drawing and Creative Writing.  The day is a time to pause, to breathe & to move with creative curiosity.

The workshop also acts as an introduction to the Tamalpa Life Art Process®, a body of work spanning over 40years.

Participants will gain insight into specific tools to discover how creativity, movement and dance can be a platform for navigating the compelling issues and themes in their lives. For participants who already have their own Tamalpa practice it is an opportunity to continue and deepen ones own Tamalpa life/art practice, with the added gift of witness insights.

Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Have the invitation to take time to slow down and rediscover what feels nourishing
  • Be guided to reconnect with the rhythm of one’s own breath
  • To move freely to the beat of one’s own pulse
  • To tap into what the participants own body is needing and wanting physically, emotionally and mentally
  • To allow space for each individuals creativity and body wisdom to express its self
  • To discover clear insights from the wisdom of their own body
  • To be seen and witnessed in a safe and non-judgemental environment
  • To leave with renewed energy for life and next steps
  • To find out more about the Level 1 Personal Embodiment Online training 2023/24
