If I want to live in peace, I have work to do. I need to open my eyes and mind and heart to what is happening to the most vulnerable among us. And I must understand my unearned privledges. In addition to Patricia Pearse’s post about being a peacemaker , I highly recommend this post on white privilege. We can’t solve problems that we don’t or won’t see.
Just one class this week before we head north to visit our family in northern Minnesota. (People, I am packing a sweater and jeans which blows my mind.) I’ll be back and teaching on August 3 & 4, to my new routine (see announce-y things below).
Monday’s playlist is below or you can listen to it by going to Spotify! Rock out for free at Spotify! Sign up for free, follow me at “susanmcculley” and you’ll find my public playlists ~ just click and listen!
And first the announce-y things:
• dance. sit. create. ~ another in the evolving series of day-treats on Saturday, October 1, 830am-5pm
You are creative. You are an artist. Even if your elementary school art teacher told you differently. Whatever you think and feel about dancing, sitting and creativity, this day is for you. Whether you identify with the words “dance sit create.” and think, “Heck, yeah” or if you shake your head and say, “I can’t do those things” or “That’s not me,” this day is for you. Please join me for a delicious day of living at the intersection of movement, stillness, and art. If you’ve come before, come again. If you’ve never joined us, this is a great time.
Early Bird: $80 if registered by August 1. Late Bird: $95 if registered by September 15. Creative Bird: Get an additional $5 off by making something (a photo! a drawing! a haiku! a kid! anything!) and sharing a picture of it on any social media with this link (www.susanmcculley.com/workshops-retreats/dance-sit-create) and use the hashtag #dancesitcreate. (OR send something you’ve made to Susan and she will share it!)
