Susan’s Playlists March 9-14, 2015 ~ Generosity: Give Courageously

generosity give arms wide open

“Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity.”
― Simone Weil

It takes courage to give generously ~ money, gifts, but mostly ourselves. Are you willing to share yourself? To offer the gifts that only you can give? How generous are you willing to be?

Here’s an exquisite version of Boots of Spanish Leather, a song we danced to this week. As only Bob Dylan can, it tells the story of giving gifts and the only gift we really want from another.

Below is the music from the week ~ but first some announce-y type things:

My friend Tonya Ridings is teaching Kundalini Yoga at acac! As taught by Yogi Bhajan, PhD, Kundalini Yoga is the yoga of awareness. It consists of a series of physical and breathing exercises, chanting, mantra and meditation. This ancient technology heals and builds from the inside out. This class is appropriate for beginners. Wednesdays 1:30-3 at ACAC Downtown. Join Tonya and become your best self!

• It’s St Patrick’s Day next week! Join me on Monday (1045am acac Albemarle Square) and Tuesday (9am acac Downtown) for Firedance: the energetic, joyful Riverdance routine! Be sure to be wearin’ your green, donchaknow?

Nia Jam Friday, March 20, 545-7pm, at acac Downtown Group Ex Studio ~ Magic
Join Kate Aust, Anne Wolf and Loring Myles for the debut of Magic, a new routine by Ann Christiansen. The intent of this body of work is to allow you to see and find grounding and grace in your dance: G (grounded), R (relaxed), A(alert/aware), C (centered), E (energized). Bring a guest for free!

Mindful Movement & Metta at Buck Mountain Episcopal Church Parish Hall (4133 Earlysville Road, Earlysville VA ~ GPS takes you to the church, keep going a little bit to the white building just past the church yard), Friday, March 27, 2015, 6-715pm. Experience the No Words routine ~ all instrumental music and is taught in silence ~ interwoven with the words of lovingkindness or metta meditation. Returning to the meditation throughout the routine can help keep the mind focused and the heart open. Absolutely no experience is needed in movement or meditation to participate. The event is free to all with a request for donations to the Buck Mountain Wellness Ministry (suggested $12).
