The Source and the Container
By Sarah

Forthcoming School of Movement Medicine Workshops

Before the summer break there is one last chance in July to dance with Susannah through your living room or other venue, on your own or with friends. After that the dancing adventures start again in September, and immediately introduce new Movement Medicine journeys, such as Sanctuary and Power Stories. more>

I donít use my own name for reasons I explain in the piece, but you might recognise my dancing feet. more>
