I am so excited to be collaborating with two creative and talented artists to host this special event!
Reconnect and relax into a day of creativity! Set aside a day to rejuvenate the parts of you that often get neglected in the busyness of life. Join with others to stimulate your creativity through exercises in both movement and writing. We will alternate between exploring expression through the body and the mind, giving participants opportunities to try new activities in a nurturing environment. A light, nourishing lunch will be catered. No writing or movement experience necessary. Please bring paper, pen, a yoga mat, and wear comfortable clothing you can move freely in.
Saturday, September 17th, 9-4, Delaware Street Commons 1222 Delaware St. $99 early registration until Aug. 15, $130 after, includes lunch and beverages. Pre-registration required with limited spaces available. Write firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and registration.
