Unleashed Alchemy Workshop
Join us for self-love, body positive art experience guided by Melissa Vlahos
Unleashed Alchemy combines therapeutic art and somatic elements from Unleashed by understanding, identifying and embodying emotions as energetic feelings, sounds or colors in the body. Participants have the opportunity to enliven this relational experience by using self-applied body paint as a tangible means of expression.
Stagnation is a woman’s kryptonite; movement and expression are our superpowers! Access new ways of living as your highest self. With expressive movement we gain access to higher, healthier states of being; we become empowered in our connection to self; we create greater clarity and awareness of what is yearning to be Unleashed.
In this 2.5 hour workshop, you will learn and embody methods you can easily adapt to your daily life for more ease and greater awareness of your inner landscape. Unleashed Alchemy workshop will support you to:
-Reduce stress & tension
-Reset your autonomic nervous system
-Create a healthy dialogue with your inner critic
-Feel the vibration of sound to assist the clearing and balancing of emotions
-Access better sleep and happier, healthier states of being with less anxiety
With the intent to come into deeper attunement with your body’s intuition and to Unleash and heal emotional, physical and spiritual wounds, I will guide and move with you through somatic experiencing of:
-connecting to bodily sensations
-expressing with sounds and words
-visualizing color emotions
-free form movement
