Music & Other Gems Oct 31- Nov 3, 2016 – Be Your Own Superhero

wearing-the-cape-even-when-not-wearing-the-cape-110216

Wow, did I ever love dancing in my superhero cape this week! AND I am reminded that the practice is to build my inner resources, my INNER superhero cape, so I feel can feel centered, relaxed, alert and ready for whatever unfolds — even when things get hairy. The key is to wear your superhero cape even when you’re not wearing your superhero cape.

Special thanks this week to Mary Linn for sharing her juicy superhero self — even for the surprise appearance on Tuesday morning!

All the playlists from the week are 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:

• heARTful: a space for the artist in everybody ~ a 3-minute survey
Rebecca George and I are launching a new creative adventure and we would love your input! Please take this 3-minute, 3-question survey: let’s build it together!

• TEDx Charlottesville: The Power of One on Friday, November 11
I’m delighted to be a small part of the big event of TEDx Charlottesville on November 11. It’s my honor, privledge and excitement to be coaching two of the amazing line-up of speakers: Lulu Miller and Monica Montgomery.
You can listen to the work of Lulu Miller by checking out her Invisibilia podcast on NPR. I’ve been loving the new season that explores the invisible things that shape our lives. All the episodes are excellent but I think my favorite was The Problem with the Solution.
And check out some of Monica Montgomery’s heart-stopping projects as the founding director of the Museum of Impact, the world’s first mobile social justice museum, and the co-founder of and strategic director for Museum Hue, a platform advancing the visibility and viability of professionals of color, in museums, arts, and culture, and creative careers.
Tickets for this inspiring day are available now! Please join us for TEDx Charlottesville!

• SPACES STILL AVAILABLE — Going Below The Surface: Nia, Yin Yoga & Words Saturday, November 12, 1-4pm
REGISTER NOW, November 12, 1-4pm. Explore this focus in a special workshop — Going Below The Surface — that I’ll be teaching with Yin Yoga Instructor, Amy Kidd on Saturday, November 12 from 1-4pm at acac Albemarle Square. I will lead simple, varied, energetic movements to warm and mobilize the body: particularly the hips, core and shoulders. Amy will then take us through a series of Yin yoga poses designed to release muscle, fascia and other connective tissue in the core with long, supported holds. Interwoven through the afternoon, as energy is released and the body/mind relaxes, will be opportunities to write – either journaling or using simple provided prompts. Plan now to take an afternoon to breathe deep and see what lies below the surface.
Space is limited. Register now at either acac Albemarle Square (434.978.3800) or Downtown (434.984.3800)
NOV 12 WORKSHOP IS AT ALBEMARLE SQUARE!
$60 members, $65 non-members

• Thanksgiving Day Nia with Susan! Thursday, Nov 24, 8:30-9:30am
Start your day of gratitude with dancing! Join Susan for an inspired hour of mindful movement and enthusiastic tail-feather shaking on Thursday, November 24 from 8:30-9:30am (not 8:40am, y’all). Bring a friend or visiting family ~ guests come for FREE on the holiday! Or sneak out for a little sweaty You Time. Happy Thanksgiving!

• Celebrating Slow: Donation-based Nia at Buck Mountain Open to everyBody ~ December 2, 6-7pm
Contrary to Nature’s rhythm in this season, the winter holidays come upon us at breakneck speed. Layered on top of already busy lives are parties and performances, cooking and customs, shopping and wrapping that have us running from November to January.
Slow down. Get clear. Be intentional about what you are doing and where you are going. Approach the season as you would a small child: gently, slowly and with an open heart.
Bring a friend. All are welcome regardless of age, experience, fitness level … anything! Donations support the Buck Mountain Health & Wellness Ministry which is doing great work for both the congregation and the community!
For more details and to RSVP, go here.

• MARK YOUR CALENDAR! dance.sit.create. day-treat on Saturday, Feb 18, 2017, 8:30am-5pm
We’ll be at it again – dancing.sitting.creating. together — on Saturday, Feb 18 (snow date, March 4). Registration opens next week. More soon!

• Art prints now available on Susan’s web site!
Now available on my site: high quality prints of my art (more pieces coming soon!). Inspired by the dance.sit.create. retreats, these pieces are part meditation, part inspiration, part poetry. Printed on heavy matte paper, may they be reminders for creative connection. Free shipping to US addresses. For other options, please inquire! http://www.susanmcculley.com/shop/

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