June 26 @ 10:00 am - June 27 @ 5:00 pm
Tamalpa Experience weekend online with Lian Wilson RSMT/RSME.
This two day online workshop is designed to give participants an experiential understanding of our work in movement-based expressive arts.
Time to reflect, to reconnect with the body and to recharge. The online workshop is facilitated live with a well balanced mixture of screen time and facilitated creative activities away from the screen.
The Tamalpa Experience: introduces an approach that enlivens dialogues between body and imagination, life experiences and art making. Using somatic movement awareness, drawing, creative writing and partner witnessing, participants will tap into art’s symbolic language to explore current life themes and generate new resources for personal and professional use.
The online workshop is a dynamic embodied experience of the Tamalpa Life Art Process®, it can be used as a stand alone experience or as an introduction to the larger Tamalpa trainings.
No art or dance experience required to attend.
