In this workshop we will explore the different kinds of rhythmic energies that might be guiding our mind/body connections. The ability to charge and discharge energy or tension in the body are important aspects of health. Being rhythmically attuned to tension patterns, how tension is built and released in breathing patterns, movement, sound, art making, poetry is an important aspect of health and well-being. When we regulate our rhythms, it also reaches beyond our individual self, connecting into an extended field of resonance to others in our lives, communities and to a greater collective consciousness. In this workshop we will explore different ways that engagement in art activities can help us to re-regulate our psychobiology, bringing us back in alignment with our true self.
