Something is shifting.
In this dance.
Some sort of revival is taking place.
Some sort of quiet hoopla.
I can feel it in the sweetness, delicacy, and verve of moving through space here on this earth.
I can sense it in all layers of reality that float in and out, sometimes entering in with a piercing clarity, and sometimes hanging out around the edges, just watching.
Yesterday, during a SPILL Movement lab
(SPILL is made up of Cortney McGuire, Chrissy Nelson, Laura Ann Samuelson and I. I can’t remember what SPILL stands for. We came up with something we all really liked and never wrote it down. Or if we did, I can’t find the piece of paper where we wrote it down. Maybe it was Somatics/Performance/Improvisation/Lab/Lab??).
I sat behind a plant and pulled dead leaves off, crunched them up in my hand and threw them at Cortney and Chrissy.
And that was IT.
I understood the world in that moment and I understood how my body fit in with all of the other bodies that have existed in this universe: past, present and future.
The dancing is expanding and a portal to something other than what we already know is available on a more consistent and regular basis.
Is it quantum mechanics or string theory or cellular reconfiguration?
I have no idea.
I just know that I am dancing, and that something is shifting.
Your dance mission for the week is to dance in silence for 3 minutes, then dance to this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKhpsfpnWw0 and then dance in silence again for as long as you want.
Notice how you feel, notice your breath, follow what is emerging.
Please share this with two friends: One who dances a lot, and another that doesn’t dance at all.
See what how they respond.
If they like it, and are intrigued, have them sign-up here to receive a weekly email from me.
And post it on any and all social media platforms, if you wish.
Then head on over hear to post a response, as you know how much I love hearing from you.
With Warmth and Jivey Vibes,
