Empowering Creativity through Movement/Dance and Life/Art Metaphors

Aug 04 - 09, 2019 Begins in 2 months
with Daria Halprin with guest musicians Jahan Khalighi & Miles Lassiwell

Throughout time, movement, dance and the expressive arts have provided individuals and communities with a means of soulful expression, healing and connection with spirit. This workshop will generate opportunities for participants to find such meaning connected with the real issues in their lives. The Life/Art Process® developed by Anna and Daria Halprin bridges body awareness, art expression and psychological processes. The Halprins' approach to Integrative Movement will take you on a unique journey into the sensing, feeling and imagining body.
