Rename and Unbody: Somatic Awareness and Language for Who and What We Are

Marissa Perel

10:00am – 12:00pm
June 9, 2016

This workshop is for those who seek to find a space and a language for a self that is not “fixed” – i.e. constrained to norms of identity such as gender or ability. How can we establish terms for our many selves that live more closely to our experience? We will queer such somatic practices as Skinner Releasing, Body-Mind Centering®, and Authentic Movement to come up with our own language for what our materiality means to us (as bodies, organs, substances, and/or everything in between).
