How does the experience of movement develop in us? How do the various forms of “knowledge” merge and integrate, from the life of the primary cells to the nervous system’s level of complexity? What role do blood and heart play in the relationship between the sensory state of attention, feeling emotionally and acting intentionally? 
In this online workshop, Gloria guides participants in experiencing somatic movement and progressing towards a more integrated and conscious sense of self, greater balance between activity and rest, and an increasing range of choice.
