with Lauren Rudolph
We spend our whole lives in our bodies. They are not separate from us. They allow us to move, dance, touch, feel and to create.
Early on in life many of us received messages that our bodies aren’t enough, that they are broken, unloveable, too big, too small, too slow, not this or not that. We were told it was necessary to hide, cover up, to not be seen or to actually be seen.
But our bodies possess so much power and with proper nurturing, care, and appreciation, our bodies naturally blossom and thrive. These thoughts are what inspired me to create this workshop.
I want to bring our bodies out of hiding — out of the shadows and into the light. I want us to connect to and embrace this vessel that carries us through life. I want us to honor our bodies…we need to honor our bodies.
In Embrace we will create a collaged painting that connects us to the parts of ourselves that live beneath the surface. I will introduce you to a variety of tools that will help us stay open, loose and free. Together we’ll dig deep, let go of the outcome, and move through a powerful journey of self discovery.
When finished we will have a layered expression filled with soul and depth, while becoming a bit more accepting, loving and embracing of ourselves and our bodies in the process.
