With Varahi Kelsang, MD, MA, MS

In this workshop we will explore and enjoy what our own body is expressing and creating through movement and dance. When we ground ourselves in our bodies we become present to our moment to moment experiences. Through the poetry or our movement we are sharing our story and feelings. In the process we release pent up energy and emotions in a lighthearted way. We can then enjoy the experience in each moment rather than thinking about it! (See new bio for this particular event.)

Grief is an essential thread in the fabric of our life. It is there both individually and in the context of our community.  It has the power to change us. At best grief will awaken a person. However  we need to heal in order to move forward. This workshop will  give participants ways to understand grief so that they can heal and transform this painful event.
