“Jamie's workshops have felt spacious, light, tender and kind. I feel wholeheartedly nourished and closer to myself through his work. There is always something new I understand. I return home inspired and curious.” – Clarissa, Artist and Teacher

"I find multiple sessions per week to be a vertical step up in my practice. I noticed after the first week how I was integrating the practice more often throughout my day, even on the days we didn't meet. Practicing with others amplifies the benefits of the practice. This work is valuable in my everyday life, and in my life as a teacher and artist. I notice how many people are benefiting; not only my students - their ease and calm is making waves in their families and work places." - Kate, Somatic Movement Teacher


Thinking Body, Sensing Mind:
Summer 2023 Drop-In or Series

Thinking Body, Sensing Mind is a progressive sequence of journeys into the inner landscape of the body designed to increase awareness, relaxation, and presence by highlighting inner sensory experience.

We lay down, yield into gravity, give over to the rhythm of our breath and take time to sense and feel ourselves in movement and stillness as we create a restorative break from the world. The return to the body in the company of others online is a welcome oasis of calming introspection and tender self-care, providing regeneration for sustaining our vital energies.

“To stop your mind does not mean to stop the activities of the mind. It means your mind pervades your whole body." - Shunryu Suzuki, Zen Master

"Being mindful is not a matter of thinking more clearly about experience; it is the act of experiencing more clearly. Mindfulness simply demands that we pay close attention to the flow of experience in each moment." - Sam Harris
