As Anna Halprin celebrates her 98th year, she and Daria Halprin return to Esalen for their annual teaching collaboration. Throughout time, movement, dance, and the expressive arts have provided individuals and communities with a means of soulful expression, healing, and connection with the spirit. This workshop will generate opportunities for participants to find such meaning connected with the real issues in their lives. Participants will immerse themselves in The Life/Art Process® pioneered by Anna Halprin and her daughter, Daria.
