Workshop Description

It is essential as we age to stay fluid in both mind and body. In this practice we sense into the quality of flow in our bloodstream, lymph channels, spine and extracellular fluid. We develop a capacity for inquiry, witnessing, fluid resonance, and relational dialogue. We focus on refining our perceptual skills (interoception) in order to become more fluent in a capacity to sense and feel the tidal pulse of fluids.

All practices aim to connect us back to our inherent potency (shakti) and to uncover the creative vitality within each one of us.

Rather than learning movement from the "outside in," we emerge from the inside out, sensing inherent movement and identifying barriers to flow. Through movement, stillness, sound and visualization, we explore ways to support the autonomic nervous system within our nerves, glands, blood vessels and organs.
