Flyer for Movement & Stillness as Care & Play. See text below image for details in flyer.

Register for the Sept 14th 6:30-7:30p EST meeting
Online via zoom. Closed captioning available.

In this practice, we will explore what is present in the body, heart, mind, and any care that is needed. The guidance for the practice will draw from yoga, qigong, and mindfulness meditation and offer time for self-guided embodied play and intuitive movement practices in an offering of care for our bodies and beings. Music will be played during the self-guided sections of the meeting.

The practice can be done seated, standing, in motion and in stillness, and in all the ways and forms that supports your body and needs. This is a trauma-responsive practice offering self and collective care to support processing trauma, stress, and challenging emotions and sensations.
