The Writer’s Body: Awareness of Your Primary Instrument WORKSHOP

The goal of this 3-hour, experiential and theoretical workshop is to learn inner connectivity and active awareness of your habitual patterns and to explore ways to develop new ones, so that your body can assist you as an author.

This free workshop facilitated by Paula Perlman, LMFT will be held in the Topanga Library meeting room. This is a rare opportunity to work with a movement specialist who teaches participants how to include the whole body as an integral and vital part of writing practice.

Perlman, a longtime Topanga resident, is also a dance/movement therapist and Certified Laban Movement Analyst who guides participants to develop body awareness that promotes efficiency of movement, body connectivity (bones in relationship to other bones, muscles as connections to bones), awareness of spinal support, plus a variety of inroads into deepened understanding of movement, including visual, technical, emotional, imagistic, and improvisational methods to create your own recuperative movements.

No special training is necessary to participate. Space is limited in this free workshop and registration is required at www.topangaauthorsgroup/workshops.
