Congratualtions to E. Larson Gunness (MFAIA '10) on his recently published, highly-accessible financial planning resource for artists and creative practitioners, Peace, Love, and Financial Planning: Financial Literacy for Right Brained People. The book grew out of Larson’s MFAIA practicum work, and his personal journey of connecting his life as a creative practitioner with his professional work as a financial planner.
One of the wonderful things about being in an MFA program is getting assigned books one would otherwise never read.

In my undergraduate work at Goddard, we had a rich movement community. At each residency, we did Authentic Movement work with a professor who uses it in her private practice. I have loved the group work that I have done with Authentic Movement (AM) and have engaged in several groups over the years. I am presently not involved in expressive arts beyond my music job, so I wanted to revisit this work and bring this rich modality into the community here in the context of a workshop.
