CANCELLED: Movement workshop: Body – Earth – Image

Sunday, December 9th, 2018 at 11:00am - 5:00pm

What could it mean to touch the earth? Contacting support? Or a source of energy; or something boundlessness - even, paradoxically, a sense of space? And how might our sense of Earth affect our mind? In this workshop we'll use easy, everyday movement and poetic imagery to explore such themes through creative process, witnessing ourselves and each other with a simple kindly attention, sharing our experience, awakening and integrating body and imagination. Of interest to movers, meditators, Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike - open to everyone, regardless of experience.
