The world needs the wisdom of our inner child

Cultivating Connection with Our Inner Child

A Time For Movement and Creative Expression
Kelsey Blackwell

Oakland, CA

July 21, 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Ya'll it is a crazy time in our world.

Let us call on our inner child wisdom to help us navigate. Our inner child reminds us how to move with all of our fullness, they know how to look at old things in new and creative ways, they can help us get out of our heads and into the current moment.

We need our inner child wisdom to help us in our current societal landscape.

This workshop will incorporate mindfulness practices with expressive visual arts tools and the practice of InterPlay, a body wisdom practice using movement, storytelling and song.

Join us to experience:

A safely held place to show up, reflect, play and be held by others in community

Guided meditation and playful movement

Supplies for visual art expression

Space for personal and collective visualization and reflection

Open to all genders, all accessibility and experience levels are welcome.
