Expression & Embodiment with Dylan Newcomb
In this episode I talk with Dylan Newcomb, founder of The UZAZU Embodiment Method.
I was blown away by this one. Dylan's work weaves together a rich array of practices, including dance, psycho-social relations, expression and vocalization, and so much more. He guides us through an embodiment practice that was a real eye-opener for me.
I know you'll get as much out of it as I did.
