Online: In Your Own Skin

Embodying Self-Confidence with Marialuisa Diaz de Leon Z


Join us for a four-week journey to embody self-confidence by exploring and harvesting the wisdom of Clarissa Pinkola-Estes’ story of Sealskin, Soulskin.

Presented by:  Tamalpa Institute

Dates: November 1, 8, 15 & 29

Full Description:

When we are in our own skin, self-confidence is felt and palpable. We stand tall, ask for what we need and want, give generously, and shine our light without guilt and without manipulating others. Competitiveness goes out the door, as from a place of fullness, we seek collaboration, and celebrate other’s triumphs and accomplishments.

Join us for a four-week journey to embody self-confidence by exploring and harvesting the wisdom of Clarissa Pinkola-Estes’ story of Sealskin, Soulskin. The protagonist of Estes’ story loses her skin and pays a high price to get it back. We can get back what is more precious to us only when we recognize what we have given away through perfectionism, compromises, holding back, self-abuse and victimhood. The series will culminate in a circle of harvesting our collective wisdom and compassionate witnessing.

We will engage in creative inquiry, somatic movement, guided imagery, and art-making utilizing the methodology of the Tamalpa Life/Art Process.
