Susan’s Playlists Aug 29 – Sept 1, 2016 – From PE Tragedy to Sacred Athlete

Dar Williams’ song, You’re Aging Well beautifully articulates the intention behind both the Galactic Return routine and our focus this week on revisiting what we (many of us) were taught it means to be an athlete. She sings about how culture (the sign makers) points us in narrow directions but that we can repaint the signs! She sings about finding music, the language that keeps her alive: the chance we all have to rewrite our story and move and live in a way that is alignment with who we are. This beautiful song (thanks to Kate for pointing me to it!) is worth listening to more than once.

The playlists for classes this week are all below or you can listen to them 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:

• Peacemakers ~ A Special FREE class at Buck Mountain Episcopal Parish Hall on Friday, September 2, 6-7pm
In the cultural swirl of hate, fear, and discrimination, how do we become peacemakers? The unending tide of suffering is enough to swamp us into hopeless inaction. Inspired by an article by Patricia Pearce called Three Ways To Be A Peacemaker In A Time of Hatred, (I wrote about it in July https://focuspocusnow.com/2016/07/24/peacemakers/), this is a class focused on what we can do now and in every moment to promote peace in ourselves and in the world. Please RSVP and get more information here. https://www.facebook.com/events/573400429499336/ This class is FREE and open to everyone no matter your experience or fitness. All donations go to the Buck Mountain Health & Wellness Ministry.

• LABOR DAY CLASS IS AT 11AM
Monday, September 5 is Labor Day and we will be dancing at acac Albemarle Square…at an adjusted time: 11am – 1215pm

• dance. sit. create. ~ TWO SPOTS LEFT for the next delicious day-treat 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: $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!)

• Yoga on the Ropes at EDGE in Stonefield
While I’ve practiced yoga on and off for years, I’ve Yoga on the Ropes has had a profound effect on my body, my awareness and my practice. The EDGE Studio in Stonefield is one of the only places in Charlottesville where you can feel the alignment, support and resistance of straps under the skilled guidance of excellent teachers. Whether you are new to yoga and want to get a strong foundation or have practiced for a while and are looking for insights into your next steps, or if you just want to have a blast playing in a new way (and getting to hang upside down!), these classes are the bomb. You can check out the schedule here or contact either me or Liz Reynolds (elizabethrey@acac.com) with questions!

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