"The Art of Falling"
(Durham) through Spring

Falling asleep, falling in love, falling down, falling out of favor, falling apart, falling all over yourself, falling from grace.... What is it about falling that is so central to human experience? Which falling states do we embrace? Which do we fear? What is the difference?

BOOM! A toddler falls down. She laughs, gets back up, and repeats the cycle over and over again. For most adults, though, our fear of unexpectedly hitting the ground stops us from fully participating in many activities that we might otherwise enjoy. How would life be different if we brought skill rather than fear to the (inevitable) act of falling? In this series of classes, we'll playfully explore, in slow motion, the stages of transitioning from standing to landing safely on the ground.

If the idea of falling concerns you, rest assured that no demands will be placed on you that are beyond your abilities.
