Embodied Perception:
The Nervous System and the Senses

Often, as human beings, we develop a preconceived notion of how our body moves and end up missing the reality of the body we are living in at this moment. Through a variety of movement explorations, conversations, and tactile feedback we’ll practice attuning to the body we're in right now.
