We work from the idea that creative collaboration can bring deep connection, satisfaction and trust, as with sharing in 12 step fellowships, for being witnessed in a safe, non – judgemental environment can be deeply empowering. Our emphasis is on delivering guided body awareness processes, focusing mind techniques and simple self-care tools, as developing self -awareness can improve physical and emotional well being, enhance creativity, as well as improving communication and relationships.
I use a very hands on approach with the movement when facilitating these courses, so the women are guided gently and safely into their bodies. I have devised and developed a framework of ‘movement metaphors’ that explore each of the 12 step principles and reflects one of the notions of the Tamalpa work, as stated by co founder Daria Halprin, “We work with the arts metaphorically, as a way of identifying, reflecting on, and changing our conditioning. We transfer principles and practices of the arts as a creative process in order to facilitate awareness, insight, and positive change”.
