Authentic Movement Practice with Chelsea Petrakis in December

Authentic Movement Practice with Chelsea Petrakis in December

 JANUARY Saturdays from 10am-12pm

Authentic Movement is a simple form of self-directed movement. It is usually done with eyes closed and attention directed inward, in the presence of at least one witness. Movers explore spontaneous gestures, movements, and stillness, following inner impulses in the present moment. The witness watches and tracks inner responses to the mover with the intention of not judging, but focusing on self-awareness.

Authentic Movement cultivates a contemplative frame of mind, clarity of perception, and movement that is personally enhancing. The particular relationship between mover and witness, in moving and being seen by another, creates a powerful framework within which this work takes place.

FIRST MONDAY with Tracy Broyles

FIRST MONDAY with Tracy Broyles

FLOCK member Tracy Broyles will begin offering FIRST MONDAY- a monthly work/play shop starting in October. Each month will have a different theme relating to Energy and Consciousness, and will use conversation/education, somatic/energetic centering, and creative play (movement and sometimes drawing and/or writing), to experience and investigate the theme. BASICALLY using the expansive creative tools we all have in pursuit of psyche-spirit reflection. Upcoming themes will be posted on Questions/Registration

First Mondays November 5th 9:30-11:30 am. $15-$20.

OCTOBER THEME was: Breath as a metaphor for Giving and Receiving.

NOVEMBER THEME: Monsters lurking in our idealized self image

DECEMBER THEME: Enlivening the Energy Body:
Everything is Energy. The physical body is the densest layer of the Energetic Field. Vibration, color, sound, thoughts, emotions, have energy. Consciousness and Energy are entwined in a deeply dissolving and rotating dance. In this work/play shop, we will work with practices that help us connect with and perceive our energy bodies, as well as how our field interacts with others. Art on the wall and live music help us let go into the connection to energy as vibration. Meditation, Movement, Creative Play led by Tracy Broyles, environment created by jaime lee christiana, and live music by Adrian Hutapea.
