Who is someone in your life who you would like to honor? Who has supported you, or been a good friend, or made life more meaningful?
We will each come to this workshop with one specific person to honor. We will come together in community to appreciate the people who have been important in our lives, and dedicate our art and dances to them. Perhaps you want to honor a best friend, or a deceased parent, or an influential teacher, a quickly-growing child, an ancestor you’ve never met — or even an aspect of yourself like an inner guide who you would like to thank. Whomever you choose, what gifts have you received from them? How do they live in your soma, in your body, emotions, imagination and memories? How would you like to honor them and your relationship through art and ritual? Through guided imagery, somatic explorations, drawing, creative writing, dance and sharing, we will use the Tamalpa Life/Art Process® to focus our attention on the people in our lives who have made us who we are.
No art or dance experience needed.
To get the most out of this online class, please prepare a comfortable space to move in with access to your online device and reliable internet service. Also, have art supplies ready at hand for the drawing activity and paper and pen for journaling and creative writing exercises.
