Susan’s Playlists November 30 – December 5, 2015 ~ Proprioception: The Secret Sense

the music of the 6th Sense

Proprioception was everywhere this week. A student came to class with her hair in intricate clips along the back of her head. Proprioception allowed her to do make that happen! Another student recalled skiing in white-out conditions – basically feeling her way down the mountain. Yep, proprioception. When preparing lunch with a friend this week, she reached for a box on the counter that she thought was full and jerked it up. Proprioception, just off a little!

I hope you find the exploration of our secret sixth sense as fascinating as I do. If so, here’s a great article about the history and function of proprioception (thanks, Lisa Kimball!).

Below are all the playlists for the week. You can listen to all the playlists for free on Spotify https://www.spotify.com/us/ ? Sign up 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!

Here are some cool things you want to know about:

• Embracing Darkness: A Special Winter Class with Mary Linn & Susan ~ Friday, December 11, 6-7pm at Buck Mountain Episcopal Church Parish Hall in Earlysville

As the dark edges closer and closer to our doors, we have a choice about how to approach this time of year. We can huddle and steel against it, we can glitter and holly jolly over it, or we can embrace it. Please join Mary Linn and Susan for a special class of movement and music that invites the whole-hearted embrace of the darkness that is essential to growth and life. Rich instrumental, gospel and live vocal music underscores the focus on peaceful mindful presence we can choose to cultivate. Pay what you can (proceeds go to the Health & Wellness Ministry at Buck Mountain Episcopal). No experience or spiritual practice needed. All are welcome.

• dance. sit. write. draw. Saturday, January 23, 2016 – Registration happening now — we’re a quarter full!
