Two day Tamalpa Experience with Lian Wilson MSMT/MSME on the Kent Coast.

Tamalpa Experience weekend with Lian Wilson MSMT/MSME

This two day IN person 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 Tamalpa Experience will be held at the Chichester Memorial Hall, Sandgate in Kent.

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 Tamalpa Experience 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, all abilities welcome. Open to beginners and advanced movers.

“I attended the Tamalpa Weekend Experience facilitated by Lian Wilson without any previous knowledge or experience of the work. I loved every minute and found the weekend to be a uniquely rich and rare gift of time, space & powerful creative tools to express, heal, grow and deeply nourish my whole being. More so, these simple and effective tools are now available to me as new empowering choices in my daily life. Thank you for this truly wonderful work.” ~ Tamalpa Experience participant
