Coastal Maine: Body, Landscape & the Creative Process 6/2 - 6/8
With Colleen Wahl.
Interested in working through your body to refresh or deepen your creative practice? Curious how immersive experiences in nature can inform what you are already working on and provide time and perspective on your work? Housed on an idyllic property in Harrington, ME, this weeklong, immersive experience is a hybrid residency-workshop designed to facilitate your creative process through somatic experiences and relevant outdoor excursions into Maine’s spectacular landscape. Notice the spreading of the five rays of your toes as you read this. Let that ground you. Begin each morning with a guided movement practice that connects you to your body and deepens your understanding of the material body. Based on the explorations in body and movement we will enjoy an excursion into the natural world. Your spreading feet will notice their buoyancy on a moderate hike to the summit of a nearby mountain, or they rest in the sun and wind on the rocks of a hidden Acadia beach. As part-residency, there each day will include open time for you to work in your chosen modality, read, or reflect, as well as time in community of other participants to share your work and reflections.
All levels, beginners encouraged.
