Engage in a dynamic exploration into the art of finding one’s center, combining an initiation to the creative and healing medium of clay, with the balancing counterpoint of yoga, meditation and somatics.
While focusing on the essential technical basics of throwing on the potter’s wheel and hand-building in clay, participants will equally concentrate on the mental and physical relationship of clay work to whole-body awareness through daily practice of yoga and meditation.
Throughout the ten days, we will channel the artist within via all the five elements, accessing our own bodies through the clay body in a truly transformational journey.
This creative form of personal and spiritual growth engenders insight - a literal look within- and empowers us with new possibilities of balancing our external life choices.
