My project began with the start of the Tamalpa L2 Training course in Embodied Leadership at the Tamalpa Institute in California. Arriving at Mountain Home Studio (the training course location in Marin County) at the end of July 2019 felt like coming home. It was the perfect time for me to be exploring embodied leadership and ways for me to hold spaces for others to explore their body wisdom through the expressive arts. The 4 week course allowed me to not only work with a range of facilitators in nature, but also explore identity by creating movement sequences that were influenced by the Tamalpa Life Art process for stress relief and relaxation.
