“In a non-intrusive way Jennifer enables you to meet yourself,while you learn to use your body more e ec vely, more fully, more comfortably.“ Female CEO of a Fortune 500 communications company
We communicate with each other all the me - with and without words. This nonverbal communication,or “kinesthetic resonance”, is rarely recognized, yet provides the intrinsic basis from whichwe interpret and respond to the world around us.Through experimenting with our primary developmental movements in relationship to each other, we will become aware of our own unconscious expressive tendencies. This awareness expands our perception of ourselves and thereby increases our overall ability to connect with others.The workshop will include theoretical, experiential, and collaborative learning in the form of a mini-lecture, interactive discussion and engaged, action-based-play, to excite our curiosity for exploration and meaningful contact.
“Do not the most moving moments of our lives and us all without words?“ Marcel Marceau
