For the final session of the Embodied Practice series, we will be joined by poet CAConrad. CA has has worked with the ancient technologies of poetry and ritual since 1975. In this workshop, we will be introduced to (Soma)tics - ritualised structures that allow for an experience of the 'extreme present', revealing the creative viability of everything around us.
