Witchcraft – a Corporeal Practice

WITCHCRAFT-A CORPOREAL PRACTICE WITH IELE PALOUMPIS

THURS 10am-12pm

Gibney Dance at 280 Broadway

This class explores movement, ritual and visualization as pathways toward re-patterning stagnant energy. The lunar calendar, seasons and astrology all have visceral effects, so we’ll tap into what is already present to generate somatic healing. Our unique bodies will serve as guides through improvisations that align with these environmental influences.
