The EcoSomatics Classroom

Part of Walker Open Field

Come participate in the EcoSomatics classroom, an experiment in transforming our understanding of the environment. The session will be led by Olive Bieringa (dance artist and Body-Mind Centering Practitioner, BodyCartography Project) and John Schade (Ecosystem Ecologist, St. Olaf College). Through simple movement practices and simple scientific explanations we will investigate the relationship between our own body systems and the earth’s systems. Our specific focus for the day will be water and global warming as John as been researching changing permafrost conditions in Russia for the past several years.
