Mindfulness of the Body: Free Workshop and Panel Discussion

September 29, 2017
02:00 PM - 05:15 PM
Spurrier Dance Studio

Workshop taught by guest artist Peter Appel (Finland) followed by a panel discussion on mindfulness, movement and somatic practices with Peter Appel, Debra Corea, Jan Cook, Dr. Danielle Fraenkel, Amy Jo Metzendorf, Jean Pedersen and Carol Kerner, moderated by Missy Pfohl Smith.

Mindfulness of the body is the basis for mindfulness. But it’s easy to lose the connection with our bodies in today’s busy world. How does this affect our ability to be here and now in the present moment? In this workshop, we’re going to explore different ways to wake up our bodies. We’re going to take a closer look at our senses, both the traditional ones and the more unknown ones. We’re also going to learn different practices to help us refine our perception of ourselves and our bodies almost endlessly, like a never ending journey of discovery.
So let’s dive inside and see what we’ll find!
