The Spirals of Life and Living: Tahoe Somatic Retreat — May 2012

The Spirals of Life and Living

Engaging in a Personal Journey through Dimensions of Moving

Friday, May 18 – Sunday May 20, 2012

 We live spirals — the spiraling of our galaxy, our DNA, of every fiber in every muscle and tissue in our bodies, and in every move we make. Our attending in this multidimensional reality, this spiraling world, provides richness, depth, width and breadth to ourselves and to others.

Surrounded by the majestic beauty of Lake Tahoe, come join us and enjoy the support of a community of people committed to embodied living. This workshop is deeply informed by the principles of Formative Psychology® and incorporates guided movement explorations from the Feldenkrais Method® and Aikido.

No previous experience is required — beginners are welcome.

$250 Includes workshop, lakefront lodging (dorm accommodation), and delicious vegetarian meals. Private lodging and shared accommodations available at additional cost.
