Embodiment, Mysticism and Writing – Martha Oatis

Saturday, 2-4 pm: 5 sessions begin February 21

We will work with somatic practices stemming from the Taoist mystical tradition (Chinese medicine, Divination, Qi gong, five element theory) and works that have engaged with these practices. How do these practices open up new and generative forms of perception? What is heart-knowing? What is the relationship between perception and creative impetus? Participants will receive an introduction to various somatic tools and have the chance to develop new work and new praxis in response. Witches, contemplatives, scientists, skeptics and all types of humans are welcome.

Martha Oatis is a poet who practices Chinese Medicine. She lives in Brooklyn. Visit her site at flourishinggate.com.
