Body Visible/Body Invisible consists of nine 2-day intensives, September 2016 through June 2017. All of the intensives take place Thursday evening through Friday. It is possible to participate in individual intensives, or for the whole cycle at a discount.
All the intensives are open to all levels of movers, with no experience required. They cover the themes of leadership, creativity, moving a full energetic cycle, and emerging relationships.
2-day Intensives follow this schedule:
Thursday evening: 7 PM – 9 PM
Friday: 10 AM – 5 PM
$100 for each 2-day intensive
The cost of each intensive includes breakfast and lunch on Friday and art supplies for each of the intensives.
Overnight accommodations for Thursday may be included for an additional $40.
Location & Venue
To maximize intimacy and trust the intensives are held at the Maacama Retreat Center in Sonoma County – 11 wooded acres on a secluded river 90 minutes north of San Francisco between Calistoga and Healdsburg. We will meet in a beautiful high-ceilinged studio and prepare meals together in a big country kitchen. For overnight guests, the accommodations are semi-rustic cabins.
Food & Kitchen
BVBI participants prepare meals together in a large country kitchen. We generally cook vegetarian fare but do use flour, sugar, butter and eggs. Let us know about any dietary restrictions and we will do our best to accommodate them. It is important to note that we are NOT a gluten-free kitchen and if your sensitivity is such that you cannot even be in proximity to flour, you will need to come up with your own alternatives.

Intensive #9, June 1 & 2, 2017: Embodied Wholeness
Slowing down and moving into our bodies through embodied practices asks us to live in depth, going deeper into the land of the sacred, the place where our intuition can guide us, becoming the space we need to listen, to hear, to respond to our body’s call for healing. This intensive will focus on activating our deep listening, discovering ways to move in a state of completion and continue exploring transitions as a potent navigational tool in our own lives. This engaged process is an embodied exploration of our wholeness as we experience it in and through our body using authentic movement, art, writing and moving yoga.
