Embryo FLOW: Exploring Embryonic Development ​with Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen & Christine Cole

June 23, 2016 - 5:00pm to June 26, 2016 - 5:00pm

Our body begins creating its form during our embryological development. As tissues and structures develop, some remain with us, some are transformed into other structures, and some fade into the background, no longer existing or recognizable as the original structure. As with all development, the original processes have left us with deep-rooted patterns and templates that affect our movement, mind, and spirit. In exploring the embryological developmental process, we discover the primal roots of our structure, perception, presence, and flow.
