From Separation to Interbeing: Creativity Workshop for Contemplative Activists
June 10 @ 5:00 pm - June 11 @ 4:00 pm$135
Drawing on the work of Charles Eisenstein and depth psychology with somatic practices and the Feldenkrais Method®, this workshop is designed for those looking to “navigate the space between stories.”
This 2-day interactive workshop offers the chance to examine the cultural stories we inhabit and explore the opportunities and challenges for cultural change. Through writing prompts, discussion, group exercises and meditations, participants are guided to inquire, amplify, and express through words and movement in a safe, supportive environment.
from separation to interbeing: embodying a new story
a 2-day creativity workshop for contemplative activists
led by Susann Suprenant and Nicole Jordan
“We are beginning to realize that the world is our body.”
“Let us be wary of any revolution that isn’t threaded with
an element of play, celebration, mystery, and humor.
If it is primarily a grim struggle, then it may be no revolution at all.”
Saturday, June 10 5:00-8:00pm | Sunday, June 11 1:00-4:00pm
About Susann Suprenant, Ph.D.
Susann is a creativity and mindfulness coach and somatic educator leading workshops and coaching sessions on the creative process, somatic awareness, and community-building through the arts. Susann is a theatre director and Authorized Trainee Teacher of The Feldenkrais Method® Awareness Through Movement® classes. Her creative work grows out of movement-based training, often in response to mythological archetypes and ritual. As a theatre artist and Feldenkrais practitioner, Susann believes a creative and contemplative life is integral to a “theatre of transformation” where artists/teachers and audiences/students come together and are changed in the process – expanded in empathy, enriched in community, enlivened in expression, and enlightened in the art of being human.
