Issue: September Newsletter
Upcoming Movement Medicine Workshops

By Hanna
Wow! The fact that the writing of upcoming events have taken me the longest this time speaks of the vast amount of offerings there are to explore in the next two months. I am sensing such enthusiasm, creativity and joy behind all these workshops, as well as such richness and variety. I personally would love to go to most of them myself!

30 September–1 October: Dreaming and Creating, with Christian de Sousa. Zurich, Switzerland.
With an Open Evening on 29 September.
This workshop will explore the rhythms of the yin and the yang currents in ourselves and in our lives, as the one that is receptive and nurturing and the one which brings activity and manifestation. The dreaming and the creating is the never-ending weaving dance of these two cycles.
