In this three part series we will hold space for change, loss and the unknown. Grief is a powerful emotion that can lead us towards meaning, connection and freedom if we tend to what it’s asking for. Working through the queer body we will ask ourselves this simple question: what is needed now? And allow what’s here to be felt and known within a container of support and belgoning.
This class combines dharma teachings with the methodology of generative somatics.
All registered participants will receive a link to join us via Zoom with their EventBrite confirmation email.
