body-mind connection for better creativity, health and life performance in a
process oriented and experiential way.

way, prevent injury, rejuvenate your system, develop physical performance, reveal anti-aging
benefits, and integrate yourself in connection with others and your world . . .

How can you deepen your experience of embodiment?
We'll explore the body as an evolving, living process intimately connected to all life...
