Tamalpa Institute: Creative Embodiment Exploring the Landscape of the Body, Nature, & Imagination with Elisabeth Osgood-Campbell

May 30, 2016 - 5:00pm to June 4, 2016 - 3:00pm

Announcing the first Tamalpa immersion retreat on the East Coast!

Cultivate more artful relationships with yourself, others, and the land using the transformative tools developed by Tamalpa Institute co-founders Anna Halprin and Daria Halprin. Engage in dance/movement, drawing, and poetic writing to discover the stories living in your body. Harvest new insights and options for your Life/Art in both the studio and the natural environment of Earthdance in the Berkshire hills. The workshop will culminate with self-portrait drawings and improvisational rituals in which you embody the new resources you have gained. 

This workshop is designed to give participants an experiential understanding of the work of Tamalpa Institute, and is recommended as an introduction to their training programs. No prior experience necessary.

Workshop participants are encouraged to stay through Sunday for the East Coast Planetary Dance.

Anna Halprin is an early pioneer in the expressive arts healing movement. She has led countless collaborative dance programs with terminally ill patients, long committed to a belief in the connection between movement and the healing power of dance. Halprin has also investigated numerous social issues through dance and through theatrical innovations. For the past decade, she has led "Circle the Earth", a contemporary community dance ritual to confront real-life issues facing participant communities around the world. Her "Planetary Dance: A Call for Peace" between peoples and the earth was staged in Berlin at an event commemorating the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Potsdam Treaty to end World War II, and involved over 400 participants. In 1995, she was invited by Mikhail Gorbachev to present an invocation at the State of the World Forum in California.
