On November 18, Amy Chavez, Melissa Tinker and I will be leading a new workshop at Antioch College Wellness Center! I have a feeling it’s going to fill quickly. Please see below for details, and a little inspiration…
Yoga, Somatics, and Creative Play: A Path to Authenticity
Our lives reside in our memories, bodies, and bones. Using yoga, Restoryative Somatics (TM), expressive writing and drawing, and the therapeutic whirlpool, we will harvest our inner narratives, becoming authors to our own stories. We’ll support each other in releasing what is no longer relevant or was never true. Please wear clothes for yoga and bring a light snack and a swimsuit.
Saturday, November 18, 1-6 PM
(You will be prompted to create an account or log into MindBody.)

I just found a great piece of advice (with an exercise!) from Lynda Barry on the Omega website.
“I’m worried about our relationship to our hands, and the kind of intuition they make possible. One of the things I love to do is help people find ways to reestablish that relationship. People long for creative activity without realizing it really is right at their fingertips.” –Lynda Barry
