We all want to be seen and heard. In today’s culture filled with self-criticism and doubt, authentic and spontaneous self-expression is an experience of freedom. The willingness to feel deeply, fall apart, surrender—freedom includes everything. At the heart of letting go, discover something sublime and unspeakably raw with master teacher and artist Nina Wise in improvisation exploding with surprise, unfolding, compassion, and redemption. Become completely alive and leave absolutely renewed.
