This is a movement based workshop that explores how the spontaneity of improvisational partner dance both illuminates and provides access to shifting our inner-narratives about ourselves, others, and our place in the world.

The content is influenced primarily by contact improvisation (aka contact dance) and mindfulness meditation.  No previous experience needed; all levels and abilities will are welcome.

James W. Jesso is an author, public speaker, and podcast host with focusing on psychedelic research, psychotherapy, and culture. Adventures Through The Mind — his podcast and youtube channel — is an effort to contribute to the psychedelic culture at large. Featuring interviews with luminaries in science, art, and culture across a range of disciplines.

James is also a passionate and experienced mover who will be bringing us two workshops that blend his psychedelic work and his near-decade, world-wide exploration of contact improvisation, an improvisational dance form.
