Your body holds all your stories–locked in muscle memory. Sometimes a little supportive nudge is what you need to remember something old, discover something new. Is there a book in you? We will use music, movement, art and writing exercises to help access the subconscious, facilitating self-discovery and bringing forth creative self-expression. No previous art or writing experience is necessary.
