Every walk, even the one from bed to stove, is a complete journey, a narrative filled with a dizzying variety of events, locations, people, creatures, most of which we overlook. For our bodies, walking is a controlled forward fall, a dance of conscious and unconscious choices. Who is the I choreographing my daily journey(s)? Why do I begin walking? What do I look for and what do I see? When and why do I choose to end?

We meet daily for a morning hour of body-centered mindfulness practices, somatic play and kinesthetic exploration adaptable to all physical abilities. Over the course of 6 days, participants will be invited to:
• Awaken physical awareness about how they move and some reasons why
• Amass information about who they are and the world they inhabit when walking
• Share this knowledge as a journey that someone else can recreate
