This Studies Project will discuss the life and work of somatic movement education pioneer Nancy Topf through a dialogue between two long-time students of Nancy, Hetty King and Jaime Ortega. At the heart of the conversation will be Nancy's posthumous manuscript recently completed by Hetty and published through the University Press of Florida - A Guide to a Somatic Movement Practice The Anatomy of Center. Participants will be invited to engage in an experiential activity from the book and a Q&A. Books will be available for sale at the event.
