Susan’s Playlists August 23-27, 2015 ~ Coming Back

Quetico The Pines Trail 033After weeks of traveling, what a gift to be back together. Our focus this week was the essential nature of this practice, to keep returning to sensation without story or judgment. We played with the understanding that sensation and events are neutral, it’s our mind that makes it good or bad or pleasant or unpleasant or party or drama. Anchoring our attention in the direct experience of sensation gives is powerful grounding for whatever comes our way.

Below are all the playlists for the week and you can also find them on Spotify where you can listen to all the music for free! Follow me at “susanmcculley” and you’ll find my public playlists ~ just click and listen! No matter where you are, we can listen and dance together! 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. Have fun with it.

A couple of things you might like to know about:

Team Teaching with Mary Linn September 7 and 8 ~ Now that we’re back in the same city, Mary Linn and I are excited to team teach a classic Carlos routine, Agolo. We’ll be sharing our version of this playful and joyful body of work on Labor Day, Monday, Sept 7, 11-1215pm at Albemarle Square, on Tuesday, Sept 8, 840-940am Downtown and 530-630pm at Albemarle Square.

Traveling Posts on A Thousand Beautiful Things ~ Find posts from my recent travels, photographs (phone camera only!), words, and essays about gratitude, beauty, mindfulness and more. Please join me there!

Dance on. Shine on.
