From Meditation to Moving in Contact: A workshop that brings deep stillness to big movement

Let's go inside and be with sensation. Let's breathe and notice how our bodies resist, release, and get quiet.  From there, we will move. We will unfold without agenda. Then we will come into contact and bring our awareness into connection, specific kinds of weight exchange, leading and following, and creative states of being. All artistic risks come from letting go of what we think should, would, and could happen. Contact Improvisation is a perfect form for discovering surprise and what is unknown about our bodies, our impulses, and what we are capable of. Let's explore!
