She is a Tree of Life: Celebrating our Bodies, our Interconnection, and Tu BiShvat

As we bring compassion to our bodies through embodied practices that root us in the present moment, we can experience a sense of renewed life within us. On this half-day retreat, we will engage in somatic movement, yoga, dance, song, artmaking, breathwork, and mindfulness to nurture a loving and expansive relationship with the body.

Please join IJS on Sunday, January 24, 2021, for a half-day of embodied practice.
