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.
