In this class we will allow for spontaneous movement, stillness, and imagination. Using poetic imagery and various sound environments we can cultivate a heightened awareness of our integrated internal and external landscapes, bringing us into the present moment in new and unanticipated ways. Through our practice we create the possibility of letting go of unnecessary tension and tuning into subtle perception while simultaneously igniting our own creative processes. **Please have a clothing layer for time spent on the floor and a notebook and something to write with.
