murphy.moves at gmail.com
Fri Apr 30 11:43:11 EDT 2021
Join Shannon Murphy, William Robinson, and Sara Yassky for 4 weeks of
collective and collaborative body-based explorations in the practice of
noticing, sensing, moving, and becoming.
*Systems of Vitality*
- June 14 through July 7
- Workshops are virtual Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6-8:30 pm
EST (Although we ask that folks try to attend via zoom live, all
workshops will be recorded and shared with participants for 6 weeks. )
- Weekly Practice Prompts will be given each week. Practices can be done
in person or virtual depending on location and comfort. Small groups will
be determined and participants are expected to explore together 1-2 hours
Each week we will focus on a different system of vitality in the collective
and politicized body, offering proposals and inquiries of how these systems
can support the possibilities of moving in complex and dynamic
relationships to ourselves and others. We will explore our interiors, the
interstice between one another, and the ecologies that shape us.
- Heartbeat - rhythms, and responses
Breathing - exchange
Nervous System - engagement and connection
