SEEDS 2010

July 9, 2010 - 5:00pm - July 18, 2010 - 3:00pm
SEEDS is an interdisciplinary arts and ecology festival gathering artists, scientists, community activists, spiritual leaders, permaculture practitioners, and more, for a ten-day festival of workshops, residencies, performances, discussions, and artistic investigations, forming a unique and vital organism. Faced with how to live on a planet in crisis, SEEDS proposes that the unique intelligence of embodiment can create new approaches for our understanding of ecology and nurturing the earth.

By connecting the realms of music theory, herbalism, physics, living pharmacies, ecology, edible ecosystems, regenerative design, and bio-intensive gardening, he hopes to create a fabric of land management that enhances current systems at Earthdance. He also aims to facilitate environmental literacy while simultaneously broadening interest in systems design.

Dynamic Stability: A Feldenkrais® Workshop with Sarah Young & Fritha Pengelly

June 4, 2016 - 10:00am - 6:00pm

Feldenkrais said, “Good posture is the ability to move in any direction without preparation.” How do our habits limit our possibilities for movement? How does this relate to ‘posture'? In this workshop, we will explore the potency of a dynamic stability and how this can improve our ability to move with both power and ease. Experiential Awareness Through Movement lessons, reflection, and dialogue will provide an environment for learning about one’s habits and discover potential for spontaneous and skillful action.
