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 is a gentle, restorative, somatic movement practice that focuses on developing internal sensation and awareness. We use breath, sounding and subtle movement to soften our restrictive movement patterns and cultural conditioning so that we can regain access to and revel in our bodies’ innate wisdom, responsiveness, and healing potential. Rather than viewing the body as an object, Continuum explores the body as a living process. Continuum has been shown to be beneficial for pain, chronic injury and other physical limitations, including groundbreaking work with paralysis, and promotes deep relaxation, wellbeing and a sense of connectedness.

Class presented by: Teri CarterDate: June 1 - December 7, 2017Location: Somatic Arts Space Santa Monica, California, United States
Amplify and refine the far-reaching communication within yourself, with others, and with the world. Together we’ll explore the movement of breath, experience vocal sound permeating our cells, and move within the ocean of our body’s fluid in resonance with the field.
Limited to 6 participants, the space is intimate so preregistration is required.

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.
August 2-6, 2017 5 Day Immersion (Lodging available)
Date: August 11 - 14, 2017
Discover keys to healthy and strong bones, and for moving in space with clarity. Living bone is an exciting matrix of connective tissue; three basic layers of cells and fluids that provide leverage, support, and form to our being. As fluid beings, our form is negotiable, regenerative and responsive. Embody the skeletal system with a dynamic perspective, understanding and transcending the biomechanical definition of movement in relation to gravity. Learn bone’s role in the body’s oxygenation, as a container for the organs, the importance of piezoelectric pressure, and how Continuum Movement’s breath and sound influence the architecture of your body.

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.

SOMATIC SUMMIT presents an inquiry exploring BioDiversity. Join us virtually and in-person as somatic based artists and experts sharing insights, experiences and panel discussions. The virtual webinar kicks of this celebration of embodied bio-based earth wisdom in August and culminates on Sunday, September 24, at an in-person community gathering featuring workshops, nature excursions, performances, and a speaker round table panel. We invite submissions exploring somatic-based experiences and inquiries that give expression to issues of bio-creativity, interspecies inclusivity, earth-based embodiment, consciousness and spirituality. www.SomaticSummit.com

Teri Carter and the SOMAfest team curates the Somatic Movement Arts Festival, an immersion engaging the creative inquiry of embodiment. A week of workshops, performances, and panel discussions provide participants from around the world an opportunity to grow the capacity to take their health and creativity into their own hands, to deepen into the greatest version of who they truly are and consciously embody each day. Since 2007 over 100 somatic Artist Educators and Performers have been featured, including myriad Continuum Artists/Educators as well as some of the world’s most prominent movement innovators such as Emilie Conrad, Anna Halprin, Simone Forti, and Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen! Our Workshops support you in cultivating a dynamic and responsive connection to your body’s intelligence. Learn how your body-mind has the innate capacity to transform, heal and flourish in daily life, performing on stage, and in all artistic pursuits. We invite submissions of somatic-based inquiry that give expression to bio-creativity, earth-based embodiment that considers our body as part of a planetary process. www.SOMAfest.org
