The body is a sacred place.
It holds memory. It is the site of ancient story and dream and myth. Yet sometimes it is hard to access our connection to the divine within. Through movement, breath, journeys into the imaginal realm, and creative writing prompts we record our own embodied wisdom.
"When My Body Speaks" is a 3-hour workshop that invites us to gather up ourselves and be witnessed. We will use movement, breath, journeys into the imaginal realm, and language to connect with our bodies and what they want to say. We will invite the Sacred to hear us. We will write new pathways between them, so that what was lost is remembered.
“Here is what I know:
everything is sacred,
and everything is connected”
