This is a workshop for anyone who is curious about the relationship between mind and body, or between life and art.
Nestled in the gallery amongst the paintings of the, Approaching Painting, show we will create a microcosm to tune in and explore; What is alive and moving inside us? How do we move through the world? Where do our well-worn pathways take us and what lurks in the wilderness of yet undiscovered inner terrain?
By creating a nourishing space of generosity and curiosity together, we may play in the realms of somatic movement, writing, drawing, dancing and being witnessed. All the while allowing our bodies innate ‘knowingness’ to emerge and be heard.

I have been privileged to study and facilitate in more than two dozen countries over the past 20 years, and have recently returned to my longtime home in the Comox Valley to open Integration Studio, where I draw on a breadth of lived experience to nourish individual and community spirit.
During this exhibition, Approaching Painting, I will be holding space for and facilitating opportunities to enter into a living dialogue with the Paintings and with our own bodies. Exploring how we approach our relationships to art, we may expand our concepts of what art is and can be. With a focus on movement and somatic experiencing, I am excited to explore the liminal spaces we can create together.
I am an interdisciplinary healer, visionary and movement guide. My work includes Craniosacral Therapy, Aquatic Body work, Contakids, Contact Improv Dance, Tai Chi~ Qi Gong, Chi Nei Tsang, Transformational Coaching and Manual Neurological Trauma Release Techniques.
