Make a resolution to attend this workshop intersecting dance and life maps to get moving in the right direction in 2012. Brittany Berman, a certified JourneyDanceTM Instructor and yoga teacher, will lead participants in a playful and intuitive dance form, using movement to discover and celebrate self. And, 14 Black Poppies co-founder and writer, Jason Wyman, guides an exploration through Life Maps. 14 Black Poppies workshops are held the third Saturday of the month and are open to all. Rates are Pay-What-You-Can with a suggested donation of $20. To launch 14 Black Poppies, co-founders Jason Wyman and Margaret Bacon Schulze reflected on their life’s work and wrote 14 Proverbs that summarize and synthesize their philosophy of education, a philosophy that fosters renewal. This philosophy now comes to life in the form of 14 workshops over the course of 14 months. Each workshop explores a different proverb and uses diverse practices including (but not limited to) writing, meditation, movement, theater games, visual art, inquiry, connections and more.
