    Jaime, Kimberly, Germaine,

    Your web journal is beautifully done. I am currently putting together an essay regarding an intensive I will be co leading at National Dance Therapy Conference here in Minneapolis this Fall entitled: Halfway to the World: Leaderless Groups as a Structure for Authentic Movement Practice.
