  • On Being A Human Moving

    Workshop presented by: Sylvain Méret
    On Being A Human Moving
    Date: October 28 - 29, 2017
    Location: Yoga House Bratislava Bratislava, Slovakia

    This workshop will be an immersion into the fluid realm of our body, which is composed of 70% water. Water is a sacred element in every ancient cultures, especially the ones that had a deep spiritual knowledge. We will dive the time of a weekend into our watery existence through sounds, breath and slow moving motion. This practice is called Continuum Movement© and was founded by an American dancer called Emilie Conrad in the late 60th until her passing in 2014 and goes on today all around the planet. The roots of Continuum could be found in the old Mystery School of Asclepian Temples in Greece for instance, where the use of sacred sounds, dreams, water baths and dark chambers were the mediums for healing. Inour modern version we use a more somatic setting: lying on a mat, sitting or using a chair, in combination with specific breaths, vocal sounds and movement sequences. The work is about creating a resonant field that will increase our connection with the larger earth and cosmic fields. We also reconnect with our sensations, our breath and attention through emphasizing self-awareness, and we slow down in order to hear better what’s happening inside and beyond ourselves. We are moving creatures since our ancestry begins with the first microorganisms that sprung into life around 3 milliards years ago. Continuum is a proposition and an inquiry to recapitulate the moving process of life from our deepest origin till now.

  • 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

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

    Location, Location, Location
    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.
