Be useful, unique, updated – and keep moving.
I am curious about what the source code of movement is. What is possible on the dance floor if we keep opening to what is happening rather than what we want to happen? Movement is spirit made manifest. It is intersection of what never changes with what always changes. I’m fascinated with dancing this most primary relationship.
My journey into movement practice and teaching began with a harebrained idea in 1986 to drive across the country in a little white truck from Oklahoma to Big Sur, California to wash dishes at Esalen Institute. Here I met Andrea, fell in love with her, started dancing the 5Rhythms® (mostly for the staccato and chaos, I have to admit) and immersed myself in the therapeutic community there centered around Gestalt Awareness Practice. I followed Andrea to Mill Valley, CA in 1991. We got married and with very little idea of what I was doing or why I spent the next 12 years going to countless 5Rhythms® classes and workshops with Kathy, Lori, Gabrielle and Andrea.
