Seeing and feeling is learning and this full length demo session is designed to learn via embodiment - especially for the demo volunteer!

You are invited as witness or to volunteer - those who volunteer are asked to consider allowing their session to be recorded for future teaching purposes, and will be able to change their mind at any time. If no one is available for this we will simply proceed with a non-recorded session.
