Mindful music - creating intentional soundscapes: Learn how to approach vocal or instrumental sounding as an improvisational practice that can be applied to various contexts: a group celebration, a ritual of loss, a community building event, or a deep listening meditation. Mindful music incorporates user-friendly instruments and allows individuals to express aspects of the human life through intentional soundscapes. We will explore sonic rituals that span from the jubilant to the ambient and engage participants as mindful collaborators. 

Mindful movement - dance and somatics: Explore the body-mind connection and the wisdom and imagination of the psychological and sensory states that exist in the body. You will be introduced to a wide variety of approaches and techniques to experience the continuity and deep connection of the mind-body processes. Experiences of embodiment and the expressive potential of the body will be the predominant mode of expression while also allowing for multimodal approaches such as writing and image making. Instruction will culminate in a living arts performative experience of integrating personal narrative by engaging information from the body.
