Faculty workshop | Feel Your Way

This experiential workshop continues to explore sensory and thought awareness in considering and responding to artwork. We’ll start with a brief conversation about the ways we’ve been exploring mindfulness practice in personal practice and in class. We’ll return to both breath awareness and five eye practices as a warmup and then discuss the felt-sense as a well of insight and intuitive response. Maynard will offer a guided approach to working with the felt-sense and imagery as a mode of embodied interpretation.

Elizabeth Maynard is a doctor of art history, a licensed massage therapist, craniosacral worker, meditation facilitator and a 500-hour certified yoga teacher. In Rhode Island, she teaches social art history at RISD and Rhode Island College. Her art historical work on the representation of trauma and the body led her to pursue trainings in somatic education. Her current interests include discerning the rich possibilities in being attentive to how intellectual and creative pursuits intersect with somatic awareness, embodied social justice as art practice and thinking about how to create sustainable and fecund spaces for teaching and learning.
