Join us on Saturday, February 5, at 2 pm for "Movement for Artists." Led by a professional dancer and wellness coach Amanda McCormick, this seventy-five minute long movement workshop is intended for creative makers of all sorts to re-connect with your creativity in an embodied way.
Describing the event McCormick states, “As living beings, we have a connection to movement both functionally and as a form of expression. Sometimes unhealed experiences and emotions can get trapped in the body, stagnating and manifesting as blocks to creativity. In order to access the necessary creation flow state, an artist must explore options to optimal imaginative health. Moving the body in a way of organic self expression can help dislodge and move stuck energy, allowing for an embodied cathartic experience that leads to more freedom, enjoyment, and ultimately: creation.”
With a feeling of liberated playfulness, this workshop will help create the safety and non-judgment within yourself to suspend limiting beliefs, push boundaries, and utilize imaginations to find your artistic voice with more clarity, groundedness, and innovation.
