Susan’s Playlist Jun 30 – Jul 3, 2014 ~ Savoring…Living Meditation

savoring living meditation michael grabEvery moment offers the opportunity for savoring. And at its core, savoring is an act of living meditation.

Some people make living meditation their art, like Michael Grab. But everybody can choose to be alive and awake to whatever is happening right now.

Here’s the music from a delicious week of Firedance and birthdays.

Dance on. Shine on.

Our project of gratitude and invitation to Michael Franti is getting ready to shift to the next phase. Please do make a prayer flag this week so Rebecca can put them all together in a long strand of love. We’ll document it with photos and video, and maybe find a way to film us all dancing to one of his songs!


We’re excited to support a weekend of classes and workshops with Nia Trainer, Julie Wylie, July 18-20 and then a Nia White Belt training September 16-22. Events will include lots of things for everyBODY as well as for belts wanting to reconnect to the principles and practices. More info coming soon. For now, mark your calendar!


For more information about Nia and this rich system of training and learning? Everything Nia is at…

If you’re traveling or moving, you can find a teacher or classes wherever you’re going. 

Interested in teaching or deepening your practice? Check out the Nia White Belt Training. There is one planned in Charlottesville in September (see above) and lots of other places, too.
