We invite you to move into an inquiry of dance as creative expression, and as dialogue in relationship to self, other, and all. We value each participant for their unique and distinct voice in the body choir. Moving, listening, dancing will give us the opportunity to embody our human nature and to cultivate the presence of our ever widening circles.
Soul Motion® is a conscious dance practice created 20 years ago by Vinn Arjuna Marti, dancer, choreographer, spiritual teacher. – open to everybody
In a Soul Motion® class, the dancer moves through four relational landscapes, using three core movement platforms.
The Four Relational Landscapes
- Dance Intimate… we move alone
- Dance Communion… we move with one other
- Dance Community… we move with everyone
- Dance Infinity… we move our practice to the everyday life
Dance Intimate, Dancing alone we renew our relationship with the body as a shifting shape in space.
Dance Communion, Inspired by interior impulses, sensations, and images the dancer begins to relate and communicate outwardly.
Dance Community, As dancers begin to move in ever widening circles, they receive and transmit information and inspiration to the larger dance happening all around them.
Dance Infinite, What happens in the dance room is a template for the everyday dance in the living world. We move out from the dance room sensing our environment more clearly, communicating with others with enhanced perception, and relaxing more readily with the challenges and obstacles that may dance before us.
The Three Core Platforms
a meditative relaxation practice that allows the dancer to slow down, align, and recharge.
the dancer is encouraged to consciously move in all directions with equal attention and without preference.
dancers are guided to use each other’s movements to inform and inspire them.
