Class Description
 
Landscape | States: we'll start off with an exploration of tone, and the play between levels of body tone as a platform for inviting fluidity of being and responding. For the end of this session we'll move between periods of internal meditative noticing, examining the landscape inside, and then envision | move into | bring those states in the external world. We'll try to encourage changeable states, examining the relationship between a peaceful / responsive relationship with self, others, and the world around us.
