RETURNING TO BREATH AND WORD
Instructor: Cathy MacKinnon
Dates: Monday September 20th, Tuesday September 21st
Time: 11:00AM – 2:00PM
A two- day workshop on ZOOM to gently invite the body to open for breath. After a long time away we need to enter this work with care and patience. The first day will be centred on breath work; opening the body to make space for the breath, returning to the centre and finding grounding. If we feel ready, the second day we will move this connection into text.
