The Still Point
Calming the nervous system and entering an open state of creative relaxation.
January 22, 2018
10:30am – 12:30pm
Silverlake — The Loft
Through breath, sound and gentle movement we will seek to calm the nervous system, release patterns of haste and stress and rest in the still point.
In an environment of increased distraction and agitation it becomes imperative for the artist to develop a method of reliable contact with the creative source. From there we can find fresh material to bring back to the culture through our artistry. These classes will explore this practice. Working with gentle, subtle movement, sound, breath and guided relaxation, we will seek to calm the nervous system, release patterns of haste and stress and rest in the still point. Different modalities will be taught each session and an hour of practice will follow. An audio file of the 'drop in' will be available to participants of the class for continued home practice to encourage our systems to reset, re-pattern and bloom into our inherent potential.
This is a small, semi-private class limited to 6 students.
Each class is led by Kim Gillingham.
Tuition for class is $100.
Scholarship / financial aid positions are available.
By application only. Please write a short note speaking to your interest in the work, any experience with somatic, inner and creative work. Send to Tori.
