Jay Carlon has invited Annielille Gavino to guest teach this month’s Queering Technique, Reclaiming Space, & Decolonizing the Body.
During our time, we will dive into live inquiry through a process of journaling. Responding to our own free writing, we will deeply investigate what unprocessed thoughts manifest. What does this bring up for you? We will explore how we can exist outside the binaries and find comfort in the in-between spaces.This class is a sweet investigation of shapeshifting as an act of survival versus as an act of choice that empowers our being.
What to expect: Journaling followed by a guided embodiment practice. Please bring a pen and paper.
