Intuition is the ability to grasp something immediately, without conscious reasoning. Intention has an aim, a plan. The spaces between are where the delicate balance between intuition and intention meet creating an individual flow of creative momentum. This space is not forced but cultivated. We will explore our deep knowing and reservoir of images through guided imagery, meditation, and stilling the body. Through a series of gestural exercises and learned techniques, projects, and conversation we will practice finding and working the space between. No experience necessary- just a curious mind.
