A Doorway into the Imaginal Expanse

With Alixa García

December 6, 2023 · 9-11 am PT

Registration is now closed, but more Community Conversations will be held in the coming months. Learn more.

This Community Conversation will delve deeply into the Imaginal Expanse within and around us through what Alixa García calls Creativity Infused Somatic Practices. When we encounter and encourage the wild dance of the artist within, the imaginative self becomes part of the visionary collective needed for these times. Through various practices we will make a home for our intuition, coax the artist within, and make soul commitments enriching our intraceptive landscape. We will engage and debrief through collective inquiry. 

Please bring:

A blindfold, colored pencils/markers/or crayons, paper, something to write with.

Bioneers brings together a diverse, discerning, engaged and reflective community, and the curated conversations we host around crucial topics are highly popular and stimulating.

Each session begins with a brief presentation by a noted thought leader as a conversation starter to frame the topic. Structured group discussion follows, supported by world-class facilitators. The conversation and event wraps with a poetic synthesis of the conversation performed by a talented spoken word artist.

Join us to connect, inspire and be inspired by the collaborative community of Bioneers.
