Nature As Healer, Nature As Self - a movement-based, expressive arts workshop in the Tamalpa Life/Art Process
In this three-day expressive arts workshop, we will foster our body’s capacity to heal and transform from stress and trauma through artistic expression and mindful contact with the natural world. This workshop will utilize the tools of the Tamalpa Life/Art Process; integrating movement, drawing and writing, to develop connection, communication and self-awareness. The Life/Art Process explores the wisdom of the body as expressed through movement, dance, and imagination. We will use artistic processes in a variety of media to explore and deepen our relationship to our personal narratives, inner resources, creativity, and the natural world.
This is a free workshop for women and female-identifying participants. Donations will be accepted and gifted to SafeArt. This workshop is a movement-based experience open to all abilities and backgrounds. No prior dance or art experience necessary. Participants are encouraged to attend all three workshop days and to bring a journal.
Each day will have a morning and afternoon session, with a half hour break. Friday: 9 AM-1 PM, 1:30-4:30 PM Saturday: 9 AM-1 PM, 1:30-4:30 PM Sunday: 9 AM-1 PM, 1:30-3:30 PM
