January 2nd Events

 MotherHeart Studio
530 E Girard Ave

Women’s Full Moon Gathering for Healing and Wholeness
facilitated by Dawn Smelser and Tevyn East
space is limited!
Integrating the practices of Authentic Movement and Classical Yoga, we will be led through a series of exercises that focus on deep listening and the cultivation of mind-body awareness.
Authentic Movement is a profoundly simple form in which a mover moves with eyes closed in the presence of a witness. Rooted in Jungian depth psychology, it is about trusting the innate wisdom of the body to lead us toward healing and the development of conscious presence. In the practice of Authentic Movement, the body is the gateway of awareness itself.  It informs the creative process, contemplative practice, and healing on all levels.
