If your body could speak, what would it say?

The Tamalpa Experience introduces an approach that enlivens dialogue between body and imagination, life experiences and art making. Using movement, drawing, poetic writing, and improvisational performance, participants will tap into art's symbolic language to explore current life themes and generate new resources.

This intensive workshop is designed to give participants an experiential understanding of Tamalpa's work in movement-based expressive arts. Recommended as an introduction to our training programs.

The beautiful setting and natural landscape of the Earthdance retreat center provide workshop participants with a beautiful studio, healthy meals and many hiking trails. A wonderful complement to the Tamalpa Experience ~ come enjoy!

Schedule: Participants will be able to check-in starting at 5pm on Friday, November 14th. The first session will begin Friday evening at 7pm. Saturday is a full-day workshop from 9:30am - 6pm, and Sunday's workshop is 9:30am - 1pm, with check-out by 3pm.
