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.

Join us in this conscious movement lab if you are interested in the delicate dance of getting in touch with yourself and deeply inhabiting your body while navigating the relational dimensions of human existence. Sustained solos, edgy duets, ensemble experiments, technical investigation and shamanic transformation are all on the menu.

Come if you want to dance on the edge with us. Your willingness to take the guidance and to study the practice as it is offered is important. If you need to follow your own process at all times, this may not be the best context for you.

  • move with Life and all that Life brings: sensations, textures, feelings, dreams, dilemmas, our ridiculous fears and outrageous hopes
  • explore all the landscapes of belonging - to self, each other, and the Mystery – in motion and stillness, with & without words, with music and in the Great Sound of silence
  • travel the continuum of emotional embodiment, expression, and resilience.

The work is grounded in Open Floor, Continuum Montage and Gestalt Awareness Practice. 

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 no matter where the dance takes you.

Please note:
For now, all live indoor events are open to fully vaccinated dancers only.

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.
