Every gesture in which we express ourselves contains the personal, biographical and relational experience of the world. Clay has the unique ability to [offer] feedback to every imprint we make. As I touch the clay, I am touched by it allow[ing] us to gradually rewrite our biography, to respond in a new way, to find a fuller more connected flow of our life force. – Cornelia Elbrecht, 2012

The clay body changes when it makes contact with the human body. It’s an effortless dance where each touch is recorded and the clay is transformed by every interaction with its maker. The malleability and immediacy of the material naturally integrates the mind-body connection.

Through exploration with clay, we’ll recognize how we can become stuck when we haven’t looked fully into the nature of our experiences. With self-compassion we can begin to notice habits of belief, judgments, and stories, and create pathways to loosen their hold on us by working with the malleability of clay. The emphasis will be on the process of working with clay, while not being attached to the product we create.

Each week participants will take clay home to practice the skill learned in the weekly workshop. Everyone will be asked to bring a journal which will be used as a tool for reflection.
