Description of Class:

In this two-hour Zoom class:

This class will be a series of small embodied experiments, and subsequent integration, inquiring into one of the fundamental underpinnings of a bodywork session: who am I?

Its aim is less tinkering with our appearance, trying to get it right, and more about bringing some fierce, loving attention to what we often rush over: our longings, vulnerabilities, sureties true and false alike, and questions as we travel into uncharted territory.

Like a 2-hour long embodied meditation, we’ll journal, move, speak and listen as we inquire in community. Some of the experiment-inquiries may end up being daily practices for you, or tools you share with clients.

Handouts will only be available in the zoom class chat, if you want the downloads you will need to be signed in to Zoom.


REGISTRATION CLOSES 2 HOURS IN ADVANCE of each class to give us time to prepare the roster and send the Zoom invite.
