  • Continuum: Movement, Breath, Sound & Imagery

    Workshop presented by: Donnalea Van Vleet Goelz
    Continuum: Movement, Breath, Sound & Imagery
    Date: August 18 - 23, 2017
    Location: Hollyhock Manson's Landing, Cortes Island, Canada

    Movement, breath, sound, and imagery are your doorways into the mysteries of life. Take a journey into your deep fluid core and its healing nature to invigorate your life with new ways of thinking, moving and living.

    All fluids of the body — the circulating blood, the tides of cerebrospinal fluid, the pump of the lymph system, the net of membranes or the swirl of viscera and brain — function as ONE stream of intelligence. Continuum’s movements are designed to enhance the undulating spirals and circularity of this fluid system. A full range of non-patterned movement, from dynamic full-bodied expression to subtle micro-movements, stimulates neurological growth and vibrancy. Learn to use specific sounds and movement sequences to stimulate fluid movement within the body and mind for an extraordinary awakening to the fullness of what it means to be alive.

  • Continuum Movement; Liquid Kabbalah

    Class presented by: Rabbi T’mimah Ickovits
    Continuum Movement; Liquid Kabbalah
    Date: August 6, 2017
    Location: Mind Body Apothecary Venice, California, United States

    Continuum Movement; Liquid Kabbalah
    Mystery School

    We meet First Sunday of the Month 1-5 PM

    Continuum Movement is a loving and dynamic inquiry into what it is to be human. We each are part of a living, unfolding, biological planetary process. Water is a fundamental aspect to this process and to all life as we know it. By means of paying attention to the active fluid resonance in our beings, we refine our own attunement. This empowers us to support not only our own needs, but the needs of those around us.

    Through gentle sounding and loosely choreographed movement, we will slow down, pause, and allow the resonant impact of the sound to arrive and inform.
    Rabbi Yoseph Ashkenazi offers ( 14th century in his commentary on Sefer Yetzirah in the name of the Riivaad)

    “It is incumbent upon you to know that for everything The Holy One of Blessing Created in the world, there is a corresponding part created in the human, as it is written, “We will make humans in our pattern in our form” (Genesis 1:26) and all this in order to contemplate from within the revealed, the secret wisdom.”

  • Dwelling In Fluid Nature

    Class presented by: Susanna Knittel
    Dwelling In Fluid Nature
    Date: August 26, 2017
    Location: 1440 Harvard Street, Santa Monica, CA 90404 Santa Monica, California, United States
    In Continuum we understand the body as a process in constant motion.  We use breath, sound, awareness and movements to tap into deeper layers of our origin and history. By cultivating  inward attention, we learn to track sensation,  develop felt sense and listen to subtle impulse as guide to knowing ourselves and  to feel at home in our bodies. Coming into sync with the MOVEMENT that we ARE is deeply pleasurable and rejuvenating. By engaging with the body’s fluid intelligence, we come to open to the confluence of our inner and outer  world, where we feel whole. Continuum based movement  nurtures  creativity and fosters perceptual shifts. Sponsored by Still-Movement.com

    Fluid Place; Exploring Spatial/Temporal InterConnections
    Date: August 27, 2017
    Location: Continuum Studio Santa Monica, California, United States

    Many of us can recall Emilie Conrad emphatically sharing these words and the significance of locating oneself. As we allow our bio-system to find somatic comfort, the Dissolve/Resolve found in the practice of Continuum Movement® allows our whole being to rest and settle, drop under the tone of our nervous system and integrate with the earth’s gravitational field and cosmic stream of information.

    I find it nourishing to consistently locate myself in order to offset the current cultural milieu of speed, confusion, political despair, and bio-system attachment to technology, all of which deters us from comfortably navigating the terrain of life. I invite you to join me in embracing the practice of attuning to nature’s support, where ground and direction becomes familiar in each moment and our fluid body resonates with all time/space. As we slow down, sensory signals guide us, cueing the body’s inner landscape of subtle movement and mutability of form, to deepen with every breath in relation to our world.

    Like the ocean is a body of water, the whole human organism is a body of movement. In open attention we can recognize that we ARE movement, we shift from fixation and receive the nourishing creative flux that is available to us. Continuum’s fluid movement, dexterity of breath, resonance of sound, and value of meaning empowers us to experience life in our wholeness as a human being, able to participate more fully in each dive, and in each day. Let’s Dive Together! In community we’ll resource Continuum’s invitation to align with our innate wisdom, finding spaciousness that emerges from attuning to sensation and place.

  • Embodiment is Nature

    Workshop presented by: Barbara Karlsen
    Embodiment is Nature
    Date: September 18 - 24, 2017
    Location: Continuum Studio Santa Monica, California, United States
    Workshop: Cultural evolution has been much faster than biological evolution. As a result the body is left behind trying to work out and integrate the ecological degradation and change. This is not something the rational mind can do for us. In this workshop we learn how we can support the body through movement, breath and sound to attune to the evolutionary dynamics of the planet.
    Somatic Summit Panel Speaker: On a crowded planet facing an ecological crisis, our human behavior is deeply patterned to behave and respond in ways that are antithetical to our true nature. As our world becomes increasingly dehumanized and denatured, we face the biological paradox of the breakdown of our ecological home and we are unable to do anything about it…. ways of knowing that are embedded and embodied in our developmental tie to the Earth are essential resources for human transformation and renewal. The purpose of the thesis is to foster an understanding of the psychobiological needs that humans possess as a result of their evolutionary nature and to develop an eco-somatic framework to support those needs. The implications of this topic are to place new value on creating eco-somatic programs for recovering our embodiment in and connection with the Earth. It ties together human and non-human ecologies, systems theory, contemporary developmental psychology, embodiment theory, and evolution. This topic is relevant and timely for a theoretical dissertation as we live with the increasing possibility of rapidly changing and unforeseen environments.

  • CONTINUUM AND THE FLUID SYSTEMS OF THE BODY: Universal Movement Motifs

    Workshop presented by: Teri Carter
    CONTINUUM AND THE FLUID SYSTEMS OF THE BODY:  Universal Movement Motifs
    Date: October 14 - 17, 2017
    Location: Embody Life Ranch Santa Clarita, California, United States

    An immersion into Continuum’s breath and sound to access universal movement motifs (cell/embryo) from a fluid system perspective. From spirals, waves, involutions, to vortices, everything has been touched by the movement of water – our bodies, the planet, and the galaxy. Explore the fluid system within our bodies as one profound, resonant stream of intelligence that determines the flow of information and nourishment available to us. The fundamental choreographer of our tissue structure is fluid molecules, and their flow underlies our psychophysical states of presence, communication, transformation, and the dance between rest and activity. Embody fluid’s natural movement behavior of waves, undulations and spirals; a motif reflected in cells and embryos. Learn movement, hands-on and observational approaches to distinguish qualities and influences of major fluids, including blood, lymph, cellular, transitional, intracellular, cerebral-spinal (CSF), and synovial.

  • SENSES & PERCEPTION

    Workshop presented by: Teri Carter
    SENSES & PERCEPTION
    Date: October 24 - 28, 2017
    Location: Embody Life Ranch Santa Clarita, California, United States

    We’ll learn the process and patterns of how movement, awareness and response to our surroundings shape our being. This course is a somatic exploration of our 5 traditional senses: touch, taste, smell, hearing, and sight. In addition, we’ll address proprioception, interoception, kinesthesia, and empathy.  Discover and recognize how we filter, modify, distort, accept, and reject sensory information to bond, defend and learn.  As we expand our empathic capacities, our unfolding “orbital consciousness” transforms our bodies and perceptions. Our new structure gifts us with extended faculties, with new forms of sensing, receiving, communicating and ways of knowing; and free from habitual ways of being with ourselves and the world.
