Through the ages, 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 explore the bridge between the artistic and therapeutic potency of the expressive body using the Tamalpa Life/Art Process, developed by Anna and Daria Halprin.
