SOMA SCHOOL is a mobile embodied learning project that explores the intersection of art practices and healing modalities. Drawing from the practices of artists and creative healers across disciplines, its workshops and clinics explore relationships among physical awareness, mental perception, intuition, learning, and creation.
In its inaugurate incarnation at DE-CONSTRUKT in June 2018, SOMA SCHOOL presents a series of workshops intended for artists of any discipline who wish to deepen their practice through somatic exploration, as well as any humans curious about the creative and transformative potential of deepened kinesthetic and perceptual awareness.
SOMA SCHOOL is founded by Rebecca Posner, an artist, writer, and long-time partner of DE-CONSTRUKT.
