Drawing by artist Cleo Tabakian

Our organs are vital and alive. They provide us with our sense of self, full-bodiedness, and organic authenticity. Our organs support our survival, generating our breathing, nourishment and elimination. They support our postural tone and our feelings, and give volume to our movement. Our organs are filled with emotions, aspirations, and the memories of our personal and social histories. Together we will initiate breath, voice, movement and touch from our organs. We will analyze imbalance and explore techniques to facilitate balance in the organs.
