Medicine Dance - Mindful Movement Talking Story

Fred Sugerman, Gary Glickman PhD, Stephan David Hewitt & Colleen Sugerman

movement gifMedicine Dance Morning Movement, Afternoon Play, Evening Council

We will explore:
 *  The confluence of movement, words and deep listening
 * Stories that we embody    
 * Movement that longs to be expressed 
With relaxed body, lifted spirit and gently opened psyche, we will come to Council nightly with invitation to Talk and Move  the stories of our lives:
 * both the familiar stories we have always held to be true—
 * and new stories possible to birth in this Time of Change, Transformation and Paradigm Shift.
Who is invited?  
All who are willing to step into Presence and allow that Presence to be Expressed and Deeply Witnessed.
 * To integrate movement and mindful touch with talking-story —— in your personal life-practice or your professional healing practice.
 * To invite Insight. 
 * To access Joy.  
 * To receive Restoration.  
 * To experience Community.
Also: Because the Earth and All Relations need you, right now, to feel yourself Alive and fully awake to Possibility.   We know the old structures are crumbling. We are the mad scientists pioneering their replacements.

Fred Sugerman

Movement artist and educator, energy wrangler and masterful workshop facilitator; exploring the space between the healing and performing arts is his passion.  His expertise: creating a space of safety and permission, where participants become quiet and still enough to identify already-occurring movement in their bodies, and allow that internal experience to externalize and emerge as dance. Presence in action.
