Sat 29 Jan

Movement & Mindfulness Workshop

Led by Lesley Asare

FREE but booking required. Please note this workshop is open to Black female-identifying people only

Inspired by the belief that “the body holds our entire life experience,” this workshop led by Lesley Asare, aims to create the space for Black female-identifying people to self-reflect through the expressive arts.

Through movement, drawing, writing and discussion participants will connect to their bodies, breathe, move, and nourish themselves with ease. Participants will discover and give room to what is alive within them right now within a safe and sacred space.

No artistic or movement experience is necessary. Simply come with an open heart and the willingness to self-reflect, share, listen, connect with others, play and move.

Please be aware that this workshop is solely a space for self-reflection. Lesley Asare is a Tamalpa L2 Teacher Training Graduate trained in the Tamalpa Life Art Process, therapeutic tools will be used in this session but this will not be a space for art psychotherapy.

Please note: This workshop is for Black female-identifying people who attend Heather Agyepong's show The Body Remembers (Fri 28 & Sat 29 Jan) only, particularly those with a lived experience of trauma, going through healing.

The body is an archive. It remembers everything – even the things that the head forgets.
