When: Saturday 24 November
Deadline for applications: Monday 19 November
Join Dr Tamara Russell to explore Body in Brain and Mind from her unique blended perspective of neuroscience, martial arts and clinical psychology. This approach supports integration of body and mind via a bi-directional link between the brain and the body. The moving body is currently an under-utilised tool to promote health and well-being.
From the simple to the profound, the body as a teacher and movements as the classroom, the moving body has it all when it comes to healing. Offering interdisciplinary brain-wise explorations, this workshop will take participants on a personal journey that may surprise, delight or even shock. Tamara will share some martial arts inspired practices that illuminate the links between body and mind. Exercises from her book Mindfulness in Motion will be shared to illustrate these points.
Part of Reboot, Clod Ensemble’s artist development programme.
