Trauma-Informed Somatic Enquiries for on and off the dance floor
SOMA Festival Praha 2020 - Saturday 10:30 -12:30
Somatické tázání informované traumatem
This workshop explores how we and the people we move with can move on from extreme experiences or traumatic events to discover new opportunities within our embodied presence. We will physically and theoretically experience how our inner and outer movements are connected and how they can become a source of healing and connection.
