Susan’s Playlists January 18 – 21, 2016 ~ Legacy of Love

kareem salama 012016
Thanks to everybody who came out to move mindfully on these chilly days and for warming our hearts by honoring Dr. King. We also played with songs from the new routine, Pulse, that I’ll be rolling out in the next week and from the old routine, Spiritual High, that Anne & Mary Linn & I will be teaching at our Jam…which is not happening tomorrow.

Because, snow.

You may have heard about this snow storm that is supposed to hit our area tomorrow. 🙂 As a result, we’ve rescheduled the Jam and I’ve rescheduled my dance. sit. write. draw. workshop. See the details below. In general, please check the acac website for all the latest information about closings and classes.

What better thing to do on a snowy weekend than to go to Spotify and listen to our playlists! You can do that for free at Spotify! Sign up for free, follow me at “susanmcculley” and you’ll find my public playlists ~ just click and listen! I’m particularly loving the song I Am You by Kareem Salama (his name means Generous Peace), an American Muslim born in Oklahoma. In this song, he sings in both English and Arabic.

Below are the playlists for the week, but first here are some groovy things you want to know about:

• Winter Nia Jam: Spiritual High with Anne, Mary Linn & Susan ~ RESCHEDULED FOR Friday, February 5, 545-7pm at acac downtown

DUE TO THE INCOMING STORM, WE HAVE RESCHEDULED THE WINTER JAM TO FEBRUARY 5. SEE YOU THEN… We are returning to the music and focus of a long-ago Nia routine originally created around 1995 by our teacher, Carlos Rosas. Together, we’ll create a new take on the music, movement and magic. Free for members and members can bring a friend for free!

• dance. sit. write. draw. Saturday, February 20, 2016 – RESCHEDULED DUE TO INCOMING STORM! STILL ROOM TO JOIN US!

We’re dancing, sitting and writing again and this time, we’re drawing, too! Join me for a day of exploration at the intersection of movement, stillness and creativity.

• TEDx Charlottesville Talks Available Now on YouTube!

In November, I had the great good fortune to coach two of the amazing TEDx speakers at the Charlottesville talks. Elliott Woods’ talk on war and veterans changed the way I see and appreciate those who serve in the military. Leslie Blackhall’s talk on end of life, changed the way I think about dying and the way I make choices every day. I hope you’ll watch them. You can see Elliott’s talk here and Leslie’s here. And there are LOTS more incredible talks from the Cville event. Just go to YouTube.com and search for “TEDx Charlottesville 2015” to see them all.

• Two Essays Published by Elephant Journal!

I’m delighted and excited to say that elephant journal has picked up two of my essays this week. Whew! You can check out the one about Intentions vs. Resolutions here and the one about the wisdom of Martin Luther King, Jr. here. Help out a budding writer by reading and sharing!

As always, please let me know if you have questions or how I can help more.
Dance on. Shine on.
