MOVEMENT AND MEDITATION IN THE GARDEN

Contemplative approaches provide a new experience of the beauty of Olbrich Botanical Gardens. The first half of each class will begin in quiet meditation together followed by a lightly facilitated movement warm-up to connect kinesthetically with the wonders around us. During the second half of each class we will disperse throughout the garden. Each person will seek a special niche for a time of individual contemplation: soaking in the sights, sounds, smells, and textures of the immediate surroundings. We will end the class by gathering to share our individual experiences through movement reflections. From these we will create a simple dance as a group. This class brings together the healing powers of both dance and nature informed by the fields of dance/movement therapy and eco-psychology. Previous dance experience is not required. Indoors/Outdoors weather dependent. More description.
