We are wounded in relationship and it is in relationship that we can heal.

In a playful, safe, and creative space, participants will explore their relational dynamics and have the opportunity to try on new ways of relating, from a more embodied and present state of being.
Maintaining a state of dual awareness, or that of being aware of one’s internal experience at the same time as holding awareness of the external environment, will be the foundation for this work.
Connected movement with self and others will break through the pattern of isolation and encourage trust and intimacy. Participants will give and receive support, take risks, improvise, initiate and complete interactions. The “dance” becomes the metaphor for life and through it more of life can be experienced.
Journaling and art making will be an element that will provide time and space for internal processing.
Verbal sharing will help integrate the non-verbal/right brain experiences with the more linear, left brain.
