Events

This 3-part series is an opportunity to sit, dance, move, witness and reflect on yourself, others and the planet. Using sparse facilitation, I will lead you on a journey of witnessing and self-discovery. Come with an open mind, loose clothes, a water bottle and let’s witness together.

 


The Witness Series




Becoming the Word: A Movement and Vocal Workshop for Writers

 

The written word moves from our imagination to the page in a silent process with its own codes and pleasures. The spoken word is expressed publically, allowing us to hear ourselves, to ride the rhythm. For some, this bridge between the written and the spoken word can be fascinating and fun, while for others it may be vulnerable and frightening.

 

Becoming the Word invites you to be curious and explore how you open and close to the movements and shapes that your words may take. Through explorations in vocal improvisation, sensuous language, witnessing ourselves and others, playing with rhythm, following the lead of our bodies, we allow the words that only we can offer in the moment, to move and flow through us.

 

Come with a writing inspiration to explore with the aid of your body. This could be from a work in progress, a line from a long time ago that lingers and lulls you, a poem that has burst forth, or a story that can be told only by you.

Exploring Our Ancestors through Voice

5 Drop-In Sessions with Open Floor International and SoundBody and Movement Studio Teachers-In-Training

Saturdays – January 23, February 20, March 19, April 16, May 21 1:30 – 4:30PM

We invite you to find nourishment through dance, breathwork, movement and easy sound play. Couch potatoes and dancers, shy mice and divas are all welcome! We ask you to show up as you are, amuse yourself, fool around, and fall in love with the magic of improvised songs, languages, stories and movement. (Silence, stillness and rest are always an option, friends.) We will explore our ancestral connections – Who are our ancestors? What do they have to offer us? How can we learn to sense and trust their presence in our lives? Please dress in layers, bring a water bottle and leave behind your fragrances.
