Susan’s Playlists January 25 – 28, 2016 – Core Awakening: Pulse

Pulse the Core 012716
The first week of playing with a new routine is always a bit of an adventure. Sometimes more rocky than others. Thanks to all who dug out and came out to dance Kelle Rae Oien’s Pulse routine this week. And if school closings and poor plowing prevented you, don’t worry, we’ll dive into Pulse again next week!

Want to listen to the awesome music from Pulse? Just to go to Spotify and listen to all our playlists from the week! 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!

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 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!

• Midwinter Movement Meditation with Mary Linn & Susan ~ Friday, February 12, 6-7pm at Buck Mountain Episcopal Parish Hall
Deep in the heart of winter is a time of quiet and reflection. Outside, the land is in a midwinter stillness waiting for spring rebirth. Join us for a special hour of movement and music focused on quieting and cleansing. Class will be led by Black Belt Nia Instructors Mary Linn Bergstrom and Susan McCulley and will use the rich music of ChakraDancer. Bring a friend — all are welcome, and no experience is necessary. Donations help support Buck Mountain’s wellness ministry. For more details, click here.

This TED Talk on creativity http://my.happify.com/hd/dealing-with-unexpected-can-take-creativity-to-new-heights/ fascinates me. It talks about how doing things that are a little uncomfortable or awkward lights up creativity. So whether or not you think of yourself as a dancer, a sitter, a writer or a drawer, this day of exploration might be for you! 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.
