Our bodies are our most intimate place of connection with Nature. From this perspective, it is so clear that we are Nature.

What is your EarthBody? Your body is your landscape of Nature within which you live and experience life. By extension, the earth and all of Nature is also a body within which we live. Seems so simple, but in our post-modern, digitally accelerated world, losing track of ourselves and our connections with Nature, within and externally, is a painful epidemic of disconnection.

This program is a collaboration of TerraSoma founder Dave Talamo and Ariana Candell and her EarthBody approach. Together they bring half a century of working with people in Nature, in dance and movement, therapy and many other expressive modalities. For this event we will be blending together practices of mindfulness, Authentic Movement, nature-based ceremony, intentional solo time, and Chi Kung with Nature. We will use experiential methods to help you learn new tools that you can apply personally and professionally.

Do you love dancing and moving? Do you enjoy being outside in nature?

We welcome you to embrace your body and nature, your Earthbody!
