Activities

TENSION RELEASE EXERCISE (TRE)

Explore how our muscles can serve as storage houses for emotional memory. By communicating with our muscle systems, we can access and release stored stress. Mark Gerow gently and safely guides you through a technique of fatiguing muscles that surround the body's emotional center. As the muscles fatigue, they begin to shake, setting off a chain reaction that triggers a reset of the autonomic nervous system. This science-based, visceral approach uses your body as a gateway to release built up stress and anxiety and leave you feeling incredibly relaxed. This is an invigorating experience involving focused physical exercise to achieve tension release. 80 MIN | $75

THE BEAUTY OF IMPERFECTION

This workshop is inspired by the traditional Japanese art form of Kintsugi, meaning to join with gold. Participants will reassemble the shattered pieces of broken pottery and highlight the places of repair with richly colored gold lacquer. The process of repairing a vessel examines our relationship with fracture and imperfections, both real and symbolic, with compassionate reflection and a renewed perspective on what it means to be whole. Instead of disguising, discarding, or replacing the cracks in art or life, we can render the traces of imperfection with beauty and strength. 90 MIN | $95
