Susan’s Playlists Jan 26 – 29, 2015 ~ Honest & Gentle

honest and gentle ampersand
“Let’s be honest with ourselves here…”
“Be gentle on me…”
Honest & Gentle.
The magic is all in the ampersand.

Below please find the music from a week of dancing in the space between Honest & Gentle. Gonest? Hentle?
We played with a couple of songs from the upcoming routine, No Words (see information about the launch below), Covers Uncovers and some Nia classics. EnJoy.

But first a few Announce-y type things:

Sharon Salzberg’s 28-Day Meditation Challenge! begins on Sunday. One of my favorite meditation teachers, Sharon Salzberg sponsors a yearly 28-Day Meditation challenge during the month of February. I will be one of the bloggers writing about the experience on her site and you can follow me and the other meditator-writers here. Commit to 28 days of meditation by signing the pledge and being part of a month of mindfulness.

No Words launch at Buck Mountain Episcopal Church in Earlysville. I’m excited to be debuting my No Words routine on Friday, February 13 at 6pm at the Buck Mountain Parish Hall at 4133 Earlysville Road. Music and movement are human expressions beyond language. This routine combines all-instrumental music with wordless teaching to offer a meditative, energizing, and personal experience. Hosted by the Buck Mountain Wellness Ministry, the class is free and open to everyone with the request for donations toward the committee’s work in the community.

Helen Terry returns to Charlottesville for a special Nia class on Friday, February 27 at 545pm at acac downtown! It’s a chance to dance with a gifted and experienced trainer to her routine “Rising.” Space is limited to early registration is strongly recommended. You can get details here. $20/members and $25/non-members. Please register with acac downtown member services ~ 434.984.3800

– Our friend and teacher, Mary Linn is taking one day at a time after the death of her only daughter, Chloe, in a car accident on December 22. Much gratitude for the Invisible Net of Love that has surrounded her in these darkest of days. The meal schedule is full through the end of February, so please check back to these Thursday posts and here and here for information for more dates as they are needed. Donations are still needed as the realness of lawyers and legal proceedings and therapy of all kinds continues.

As always, please let me know if you have questions or how I can help more.

Dance on. Shine on.
