Flocking: Community Attunement Through Fluid Movement
led byÂ Melody Lucien
Feel the juice of moving as one! Together we release our personal agenda and relax into being moved organically by the group as one fluid organism. We begin by tuning in to our own fluid nature in communion with earth, exploring undulating movement and subtle primordial sounding. Then we move into partnering with another through heart resonance, awake contact and receptive body listening. From there we expand into attuned, improvisational movement as a whole commUNITY, likened to the soaring grace of a flock of birds or swimming school of fish through water. Through slowing down into embodied presence and fluid resonance, we feel the enlivening nourishment of being inherently moved in attunement. This experience of attunement reverberates into our lives, bringing a greater sense of embodied harmony and collaborative co-creation.
led byÂ Fred Burks Join us in exploring ways of using breath and the powerful energies of sacred sexuality to fall ever more in love with ourselves and with all around us.
Sometimes the most profound connections happen when breathe deeply and slow things down when connecting with ourselves as well as with one or more lovers. This session will invite you to play with the subtle energies that can arise from breathing deeply and moving slowly. We’ll use breath, kundalini energy, and authentic movement to explore various ways of connecting intimately with ourselves, with partners, and even with the whole group. Connecting exercises with eyes closed will particularly help you open to an expanded level of love and connection. And you are always at choice. Come play with us!

Getting in touch with touch

How do you like to be touched? How willing are you to ask for what feels great?
Deepen your capacity to lovingly ask for what you like and then dare to really enjoy it. Finding your voice to express how you feel and guide another’s touch on your body is a beautiful gift for both receiver and giver. People come away feeling happy, nurtured, empowered and peaceful. This is a non-sexual, deliciously sensual class.
You are always at choice.
Open Space Technology
We are happy to host an afternoon of Open Space Technology. Â If you have something you’d like to share, please come prepared. There is limited space for the creative and dynamic collaboration. Â It’s a great way to learn more about each other! Â A very good description from: http://www.co-intelligence.org/P-Openspace.htmlÂ follows:
“Anyone who wants to initiate a discussion or activity, writes it down on a large sheet of paper in big letters and then stands up and announces it to the group. After selecting one of the many pre-established times and places, they post their proposed workshop on a wall.
Open Space is more highly organized than the best planning committee could possibly manage. It is also chaotic, productive and fun. No one is in control. A whirlwind of activity is guided from within by a handful of simple Open Space principles.
The most basic principle is that everyone who comes to an Open Space conference must be passionate about the topic and willing to take some responsibility for creating things out of that passion.”
