“Two years ago I attended Mitchell Kossack’s workshop on Attunement. I wasn’t familiar with his work  and his workshop narrative included my least favorite word- “movement”- but I decided to trust Kathleen’s recommendation and go. I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly the group bonded under his leadership. We moved, we made music, we did some toning and we made some art. The magic happened! We became better attuned to each other and ourselves and, I think, to something more. I’m looking forward to Mitchell’s upcoming workshop without reservation! I hope you will join us for what I hope to be an unforgettable event on March 4th!   Donna Papenhausen

Imagery, Rhythm and Sound  are vibrational experiences affecting psychological, neurological, and biological based healing experiences. Exploring and expanding our range of imagery, rhythms and sound making can have a profound effect on body, mind and spirit.

When inner rhythms and imagery are stuck it results in stuck ways of thinking, feeling and being.

When the inner rhythms change there are effects in internal rhythms – heart, brain, and nervous system.

“Creative impulse can be seen as the underlying life force that gives a sense of renewed energy and possibility. Art enlivens the human spirit.

who ‘play’ with sound, imagery, movement, language, or enactment understand this feeling and often talk about this kind of experience as transcendent, sacred or spiritual. Artistic practices can be such a powerful tool to stabilize and ground individuals and can lead to more integrative experiences. The arts have always been used throughout history to maintain healthy physical, emotional and spiritual well-being individually and in communities.” Mitchell Kossak
