Getting Gutsy: Exploring Biological Origins & Movement for Trusting Our Guts
19:00 - 20:30
When Earth was ocean, a unique animal occurred — a complex cellular structure involuted. Outside folded into inside creating a tube, a gut body. This creature’s intelligence, an ancient nervous system, is alive in our bodies. Our guts/gut-brain are the Enteric Nervous System. Exploring this intelligence through breath/sound/movement, we awaken our guts to listen and feel soft, fluid, strong, resilience; and by “getting gutsy,” how we can “trust our guts” for support and new meaning.
