Susan’s Playlists August 31 – September 3, 2015 ~ Bare Necessities

IMG_20150810_083441232_HDRWe spent the week playing with simplifying to the bare necessities ~ taking the sometimes-challenging step of letting go of the layers of complication and instead feel the richness in simplicity. Personally, I’ve spent a good part of this year going through the resistance and grief around letting go and doing with less, only to find freedom and space and peace on the other side. It works in movement, in my mind and in my closets. I invite you to find some simplicity for yourself and see how it feels.

Below are all the playlists for the week and you can also find them on Spotify https://www.spotify.com/us/ 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 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.

NOW ACCEPTING REGISTRATIONS FOR DANCE. SIT. WRITE. – SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2015, 830am-5pm ~ Come spend the day playing in the intersection of movement, meditation and creativity! No matter how much or little experience you have in any of the three practices, this day can create connections in your body, mind and spirit. In the beautiful Parish Hall of Buck Mountain Episcopal Church, we will provide music, movement, stillness, inspiration and a very nice bell. Plus nourishing and delicious food by Rebecca George’s Dragonfly Kitchen. $85 for the day, $75 if registered before September 15. Limit to 20 participants. Check out testimonials from participants and more details at https://www.facebook.com/events/443642725810963/ or email Susan at sjmnia@gmail.com.

Traveling Posts and Photographs 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!

As always, please let me know if you have questions or how I can help more.
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. Sometimes music is not available on Spotify — most notably this week, the beautiful version of simple gifts by Alison Krauss and Yo-Yo Ma — so I may replace with another version or skip songs. What you find below is exactly what I used in class. ***
