Emergent Intelligence: Honing the Body's Voice
Lucy is a community educator, dancer, performer, and lover of improvisational practices. She holds an M.Ed. from Goddard College, where she focused on re-centering the intelligence of the body in education. She has studied Playback Theatre in NYC and loves to share this ritual, improvisational practice as a way of creating more resilient community. In her work with both adolescents and adults, Lucy seeks to create space for curiosity, meaningful connection, and building our skills as change-shapers through play.
Lenna is inspired by the body as a landscape, our beings as complex and interconnected, and our experiences as living forces that shape who we are. She believes our stories are worth finding and telling. Lenna has been studying what it means to live in a body for over a decade, by way of western herbal medicine, human anatomy and physiology, yoga philosophy and practice, five phase theory, and trauma and resilience studies. The great love of Lenna’s life is the wild natural world; she seeks a human-ness that belongs to the earth.

With Lucy Schmid and Lenna Wertenbaker
What emerges when we allow ourselves to move and speak in unscripted ways? In this four week series, we will re-encounter our everyday lives through creative movement and improvisational storytelling practices. We will locate and give voice to the narrative threads that live in our bodies. By including our bodies in the narrative process, we build our capacity to meaningfully integrate our experiences and make beauty of our lives.
Hear yourself deeply. Express yourself bravely. Join us this February to ask and listen for what the body knows.
No prior experience required.
Note: A variety of experiences may emerge from inquiring into the body’s stories, and we ask that participants prepare themselves to manage what may come up. We are trauma-informed community educators and will hold supportive space, but we are not mental health care providers.
$70-100 sliding scale for the series
