About the Event

Every summer we break from Wednesday Waves. This weird year it allowed time to feel what had come to pass, wonder how best to shape fall, given this new experiential base.  It's a crazy world out there and we truly want to support you in staying aware, remaining awake, feeling alive and connected. Somehow we have to find a way to move alone together through this strange chapter.

 

Let's name the humongous elephant in the Zoom room: the glory of together---partner and communal---is pretty much on hold right now. Current on-line practice supports our relationship with numero uno, our interior dance.  Here's the deal: if you're a dancer who derives the most juice from taking a partner or bathing in the collective, this current practice will challenge you.  And maybe that’s just what you need.  Just a thought, who knows?  For those who delight in dancing in the corner, cringe when the invitation is to take a partner, this will definitely reinforce that preference.  It is what it is.

 

This fall we flesh the internal exploration more fully.  5Rhythms is an exceptional map for that AND there are many other maps into that interior landscape. Both Majica and Bella have complementary skills we've been using in other formats  uniquely applicable to the on-line experience. The rich world of art therapy, counseling, yoga and physical therapy combined with dance will illuminate our inner space. Alone together we'll create a dynamic way to explore the body, open to feelings, become aware of thoughts. This is the map.  As body, heart, mind align, a portal reveals a gateway to soul and spirit. Alone together.

 

This is an invitation to move in uncharted territory, practice for life in a world changing so rapidly. This dynamic practice of presence is not only revelatory, but revolutionary.  It feels like it might be a matter of survival. Come with us as if your life depended on it and we'll do this alone together.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN:

Prepare space for dancing: sweep, move things you might trip on, gather water, dress in clothes comfortable to move in. Fully charged your device. Connection to ethernet cable even better than WIFI.  External speaker will improve sound quality. Some devices do not support all the features we use. If you are dropped, return as you can and we'll re-admit you. If you feel inclined: sage or ring a bell before you begin or make yourself a small altar or installation. 

FOR YOUR SAFETY, attune to your nervous system and need for privacy: you can turn off your camera at any point. To maintain the sanctity of the container, "Record Session" feature is turned off. Please do not record the session or post any screenshots where other participants are viewable.
