These sessions offer scaffolded space and time to nurture your creative practice and cultivate the things that matter to you.
Somatic, contemplative arts and writing practices help us reside in the places where curiosity meets intention. Honoring inklings and nonlinear logic, treating ourselves with compassion, respect and humour in the not knowing.
I offer structures and scores drawn from a range of traditions, including Body-Mind Centering®, contemplative arts, dance/movement improvisation, and Social Presencing Theater, which serve to access creative energies and clear thinking. Sessions will include a range of activities including somatization and somatic writing, timed writing with prompts, mind-mapping, object arranging, movement improvisation, and meditation. You can bring a particular creative project to the sessions or a more general interest in tapping in to other ways of thinking, sensing and expressing.
