First Mondays April 1st, May 6th: 9:30-11:30 am // By donation $18 suggested, no one turned away for lack of funds.

MAY THEME: This month the somatic/dance exploration is anchored around a healing response to common energetic defenses. Focusing on several different patterns of energy we will work with how to ground each and feel the healing response inherit within them. Tracy will guide you with words and movement suggestions to support connecting with where and how each lives in your body. Adrian will offer sonic/vibration reflections of the concepts for you to move with or rebel against.

Part one of two.

Writing/drawing will be encouraged to help integrate what your curiosity has uncovered.

APRIL THEME: Join Flock Member Tracy Broyles this month for an exploration of the Yes current and the No current. What is the energy of these two flows? How does our inner landscape (unconscious) and outer landscape (conscious) work together or separately in their expression? With space to playfully engage, we first and foremost send our research into the body, where we use sensation to guide a movement practice. Time will also be given to write and/or draw.

MARCH THEME: Altars of Reconciliation, in this two hour work/play-shop we investigate the question- What within us is ready to be examined in service of reconciliation? We investigate through tools of somatic and energetic listening and responding. We will move a lot, and we will do some writing. You do not need to come with an agenda, the practice is in the questioning and listening, questioning and listening.

FEBRUARY THEME: Dissolving- the I, practice of letting go of an action or thought/emotion after it has presented and completed itself, to transform the past. The I- your story, your life experience, who you think you are. Tracy Broyles will guide you through somatic play and meditation that flirts with this impossible task. Adrian Hutapea joins with music. Everyone welcome. Light touch/partnering may be incorporated.

OCTOBER THEME 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.
