Do you know what kind of magic happens

when a group of dedicated movers comes together to explore the mess and miracle of living a full, generous, embodied human life?

A movement field is awakened in which we can experience the healing power of grounded presence, open-hearted relating, and embodied devotion.

If you pay attention, you will be touched, opened, moved, changed. If you let yourself dissolve, you will find your dance everywhere around you. If you look from the heart, you will see in others “the beauty that cannot be spoken,” and eventually recognize it as your own.

WHAT WE WILL DO
  • move with Life and all that Life brings: sensations, textures, feelings, dreams, dilemmas, our ridiculous fears and outrageous hopes
  • practice witnessing and resonance as resources for navigating the relational dimensions of human existence
  • travel the continuum of emotional embodiment, expression, and resilience
  • experiment in motion and stillness, with & without words, with music and in the Great Sound of silence
  • nothing - allowing ourselves to rest in stillness

The work is grounded in Open Floor Movement, Continuum Montage and other expressive and inner movement approaches; body-based inquiries of Gestalt Awareness Practice; and guided explorations from Tibetan Buddhism & other traditions.

Previous experience with conscious movement and/or somatic work may be helpful. More essential is a willingness to take the leap into the unknown and keep showing up on your edge no matter where the dance takes you.

WHY DO THIS?

As Krishna Das once said, “We do this practice in order to be alive while we’re alive.”

The committed series always rocks my world in a way that nothing ever has. Zuza's vision intoxicates me…there is something about the deep waters that she appears to summon which create a field Holy unique. My life is shifting, my roots are far deeper and well nourished.
