Swendsen.

Continuum Workshop with Ellen Cohen

Saturday, April 15th  5 to 7:30        Sunday, April 16th  10:30 to 3 

Continuum is a gentle inquiry into the depths of our body’s creative capacities using a variety of soulful, dynamic & subtle movement, gentle breathing, primordial vocalizing and imagery. In exploratory ‘dives’ we refine our ability to sense intrinsic movement and venture beyond the limitations of the cultural view of the body. As we engage our fluid nature, which is profoundly pleasurable, we glimpse that the fluid within our bodies, planet & universe functions as a resonant stream of bio-intelligence.
