When we came together in the summer of 2006, we were strangers. After six weeks of the True Body Project experience, we are forever bonded as friends, as artists and as young women. We took on new physical challenges together – things like rock climbing and karate – and we worked with professional artists and writers to raise our voices in a public performance at the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati and to create this web site for you.
While there is no substitute for real human interaction and real experiences, we have tried to break
down our process so you can try some of these things on your own and with your friends. But trust us.
If you find yourself on the computer too long, shut it down. The truth is on the move. You must be
active to find it. When you do, you’ll find yourself.
Move with your breath.
