Susan’s Playlists May 25 – 28, 2015 ~ Stability Within Instability

stability within instability babyThe paradox:
While we live in bodies that are mostly fluid and space (even though we think of them as solid)

for which stability is energy radiating in all directions from center (even though we think of it as rooted down)

in a reality that is fluid and constantly changing (even though we think of it as solid and predictable),

the way to stability is mindfulness of the fluid constant change.

The way to be grounded in groundlessness is to be present and aware.
Who knew?

Thanks to Mary Linn for playing with me on Monday as we taught Carlos’ classic routine, Universal Mind with the ecclectic reggae music of Dreadzone. And thanks to all the people who came out to dance with us on Memorial Day ~ we loved being part of your holiday.

Below are all the playlists from the week. Go to Spotify and follow me at “susanmcculley” and you’ll find my public playlists there, too. I love seeing more and more people following and listening wherever you are! If you’re having trouble getting the site to work, please let me know ~ I’m learning some tricks and I’d love to figure it out with you. Note that if you are using the Spotify app for mobile devices, the program inserts “recommended” music that is not on my original playlist. Also, Spotify doesn’t have all the music I have, so sometimes I’ll put up a different version of a song or skip it all together. EnJOY, everyBody!

Before the playlists, some announce-y type things:

NEW CLASS TIME ON TUESDAY & THURSDAY DOWNTOWN STARTS JUNE 2! ~ Next week! Set your alarm! Mark your calendar! Staring June 2, your acac downtown Tuesday and Thursday morning Nia starts earlier!

Dance on. Shine on.

*** PLAYLIST NOTE: My playlists can also be found on Spotify https://www.spotify.com/us/ by following “susanmcculley” (no space) and look for Public Playlists.
