Workshop: Our Symbolic Gestures II with Darya Efrat

8th May 2022 at 11:00 CET


This workshop is a continuation and elaboration on “Our Symbolic Gestures I”, and will focus on movement arising from and within the body. Employing a variety of modalities, with a focus on the Jewish tradition, we will open up a space for conversation surrounding somatic and religious practices and their relevance and impact on our communal and individual lives. The session will have an emphasis on movement- so please come in comfortable clothing.
*Please bear in mind, participants are recommended to remove their shoes for the duration of the workshop.
