Beginner's Mind Creative Expression

Explore the mind/body connection. Tap into your greatest gift: the imagination. Be guided along the Life/Art Bridge in a process of creation moving freely between natural, uncomplicated movements, simple drawings, poetic writings and story-telling activities.

No movement or art experience is necessary – bring an attitude of openness and eagerness. Wear comfortable clothing. (Art materials included. Journal optional.)
