I shared this to my personal page, but realized I didn't share it here. Musings on: dance, grief, emotional intelligence, climate crisis, human ecological interdependency and decolonization emerge from the prompt - What is making it, as a dancer? If you do read it, I'd love to hear from you :) so please leave a comment on the blog site for Stance On Dance. Thanks!

Hello friends,
I will be out of the office from 9/7 until 9/18, but I am booking Craniosacral therapy sessions after 9/18, (with masks and screening/cleaning protocols in place) please call to schedule if you are needing support during these intense times.

BCST is a healing art that works with the energies that create and maintain health in the human system. While not a manipulative therapy, it has its roots in osteopathy and has evolved to include influences from human development, pre and perinatal psychology, trauma resolution, and recent advances in neuroscience. BCST supports nervous system regulation and allows the resolution of conditions resulting from stress and trauma. Practitioners use an educated, gentle, non-invasive touch to engage with the expressions of health in the system.

08/26/2020

Friends,
I am happy to say, I have opened up a number of sessions per week for in-person Craniosacral Therapy. (you and I will both wear masks and we are adhering to a strict cleaning protocol between clients in the treatment room).

dear friends and clients,
a quick note to say I am now offering online sessions via zoom, I am offering (Biodynamic) embodied somatic support during these challenging times. We are all holding SO much, and SO differently. To see the range of experiences amongst us is both heartbreaking, heartening, and humbling. In sessions, we settle into the relational field together. I am here to support you as we make space together to hold that which needs attention, perhaps to gently touch what might feel too intense to touch alone, to get curious about what is less visible right now through the felt-sense of the body, and to help you to orient to the health and strength that is ALSO present even though it might not feel recognizable in this moment. Please reach out if you need support. Sliding Scale options always available

The Ring of Rings


As a broken door lets in the light,
a broken heart lets in the world.

No one likes this,
but we can’t grow without it.

And no matter how we try,
we can’t hold on to everything.

For the mind is a net
and all nets have holes.

But you mustn’t worry,
because the heart is a sponge.

Still, it’s easier to fall in love
than to stay in love.

Easier to have a dream
than to live a dream.

In this, we’re all apprentices,
who always begin again.

Carista Luminare Interview on Bonding & Attachment

I wanted to share this interview about intimate relationships.
Carista does an incredible job of articulating what is at the heart of bonding, when it is incomplete and why distress patterns show up so powerfully.
It touches on healing past attachment and bonding patterns set up in early childhood that can create such distress in our lives as adults.
It's quite beautiful. A tool for every household.

Can I get a Witness?

Authentic Movement and the Power of Getting Seen

Every Monday afternoon, I meet up with my friend and movement partner Lauren Tietz of EarthSkyBodyWorks, and together we explore what it means get seen. It’s a fairly abstract concept so we follow a specific protocol of tried and tested steps.

One of us assumes the role of Witness while the other becomes the Mover. The Mover spends 20 minutes feeling into her inner experience and following any and all movement impulses that arise therein. After 20 minutes is up, the timer rings. The Mover says something about what just happened; the Witness listens wordlessly. Then the Witness shares her observations while the Mover listens. Then Mover and Witness swap roles and do the practice again. It’s a process called Authentic Movement, based on Carl Jung’s work on active imagination and developed into its current form by pioneering dance and movement therapists Mary Starks Whitehouse, Janet Adler, and Joan Chowdorow.

Sometimes Lauren and I meet in a dance studio. Sometimes we meet in an abandoned field. Or under a bridge. Or at a public park. In the public spaces, passers by become unintended witnesses to our work. There is no music except for any that happens to be audible in the environment, the wind, and sounds of the city.

Sometimes when I’m moving I feel—and imagine I look—like a dancer, playing with form, alignment, agility, rhythm, strength. It’s easy to get seen when my authentic offering feels like a thing of beauty and connected expression. From this place, expressing my vulnerability feels like a show of power.

Sometimes when I’m moving, though, I feel—and imagine I look—disconnected, distracted, bored, sullen, swollen, anxious, awkward or any other in the vast range of regrettable human afflictions. My movement pulls me hulking or slug-like or powerless or ill-conceived. During these sessions, there is a small but very real part of me recoiling from myself. Still I press forward, continuing to lift the veil on inner experiences I’d much rather leave covered.

On these days, I sometimes say with words just how lousy it feels to get seen like this. But even if I don’t say it with words, my body expresses my twisted revulsion—just as much as it expresses a much stronger, much more vital deep-seated longing for even this darkness to be held. And a prayer that under Lauren’s constant gaze something will shift, and it will all feel more bearable—maybe even like the beginning of renewed vitality.

It does.

Every time.
