Holographic Intuition: A Workshop Inquiring into the Nature of Gut, Impulse and Reaction
February 1, 9:45am – 2:45pm
Please RSVP here
This workshop explores the role of intuition in one’s personal, professional and creative life. Diana Rivera and Paula Perlman bring to you a dynamic and therapeutic workshop that will fuse an experimental arts-integrated experience, including movement, meditation, writing, art and engaging dialogue. Participants will increase awareness over the ways intuition may (or may not) be guiding choices, decisions and possibilities by exploring gut, impulse and reaction. Participants will leave with an increased internal dialogue around the role intuition plays in their life.
*Please note: We ask participants to wear comfortable clothing because we will be moving. We will also be spending time sitting on the floor – pillows and mats are available only. There is no elevator access, only a staircase. Bring any writing materials and/or healthy snacks you would like. Water and tea will be provided. Please contact Diana Rivera in advance to discuss any needs.
