If your body could speak, what would it say?

what stories our bodies hold and what wisdom we can find when we listen.

This online course will guide participants through creative processes to discover the stories and wisdom our bodies hold. Based in the expressive arts methods of the Tamalpa Life/Art Process, Body Mythologies

Through the work of Body Mythologies and Tamalpa Life/Art Process, this course is designed to ignite inquiry into personal narratives and forms of expression, this course is for anyone wanting to experience the wisdom held within their body(ies) in a creative and supportive container. It will provide new tools and a collective space for participants to explore the stories held in their bodies, and discover an embodied sense of their authentic selves. 

This online course is a pedagogical and experiential experiment in collective healing. For 7 weeks, participants will receive weekly scores, or prompts, that guide them through an expressive arts therapy framework of inquiry and co-creation. The work is based in the methods of the Tamalpa Life/Art Process and specifically focuses on an aspect of that work called Body Mythologies. The online format will provide a container for us to be in communion with one another’s work, as we offer feedback and serve as active witnesses via a virtual format. Participants will engage in 2-3 hours of creative co-inquiry per week, and culminate the course with a performative project/act/ritual.
