EXPRESSION: A 5 Rhythms Movement Meditation with Aaron Lifshin
Friday, July 1, 7:30-9:30pm
Who are we, on the inside? What is it that we want to express, but do not allow. What is underneath all your armor and physical patterning? The true expression of your heart is there to be found, to be moved, to be expressed in dance, soaring free in a newfound lightness and receiving the echoes of an embodied truth. Join us in searching for your unique, true expression!
