Sensing the Living Workshop Pictures (September)

These pics don't really do the dancing justice, but you can witness a few of the more contemplative moments and witness the beauty of the day. We had a meaningful and fun time following our impulses in connecting with the natural world, ourselves and each other.

Sensing the Living - Outdoor Movement Workshop - Happening Again on Oct. 16!

Sensing the Living

Lead by Jenny Sawyer

Come experience a deep internal connection to yourself and your body as an innate part of the natural world. We will deepen our sensory awareness by engaging the complexity and beauty of nature through touch, sound, sight, and smell. We will develop our ability to follow internal impulses, and we will enjoy moving our physical bodies in new and inspired ways.  Soak in this beautiful fall weather by moving and sensing joyfully with others!
