In this workshop, close attention is paid to the information on the inside of the body and then that information is translated into large, life-sized body maps that get layered and developed with each session. What could information from inside the body be? And how do we observe it? Most often we think of observation as a visual act, that is performed through the eyes. But when we are observing sensation, especially within the body, other faculties become activated. With practice one might become aware of sensations that might be less obvious.
