Music & Other Gems Feb 20-23, 2017 – Knee-Ahhh!

scan_20170217

Our knees are vulnerable places. If feet or hips are out of balance, that misalignment will show up in the knees. Given that the knees are in the middle of the leg, they are the ones that will be scrambling to compensate. Mindfulness around any vulnerable places is a way of offering strength, support and healing where it is most (k)needed.

All the playlists from the week are below or you can listen to them by going to Spotify! Listen and dance for free at Spotify! Sign up, follow me at “susanmcculley” and you’ll find my public playlists ~ just click and listen!

And first the announce-y things:

• FREE Workshop: Cultivating Resilience with Mary Linn & Susan ~ February 25, 3-5pm
How do we take real care of ourselves in the face of upset and struggle? How do we cultivate healthy resilience? Resilience is the brain’s ability to handle stress in a positive way and to recover quickly. In this workshop, we will explore tools that neuroscience shows wire the brain for an ability to bounce back. Join us for the first in the Heal the Healer series.
Saturday, February 25, 2o17, 3-5pm (arrive at 2:45)
at the Quaker Meeting House at 1104 Forest St, Charlottesville
Please RSVP to sjmnia@gmail.com or on the Facebook event page (https://www.facebook.com/events/1629783820664092/) so we know how many people to expect. Wear comfortable clothes, bring a journal, a donation for use of the space, and a friend!

• Love Warrior: embody a movement ~ Friday, Mar 3, 6-730pm
a moving experience of activism in support of five local refugee families
Any Donations Welcome*
Buck Mountain Episcopal Church Parish Hall

Join Susan for the launch of a new routine about embodying activism called Love Warrior. This is a movement experience that allows us to experience the sensation of the change we want to see in the world. We can then translate that sensation directly into action.
“Knowledge is only a rumor until it is in the muscle.” – Papua New Guinea Proverb
In times of uncertainty, our first reaction can be to “figure this out.” It is a common approach to go straight to our minds to think our way out of a difficult situation. And nothing will shift, we won’t change a thing until we feel it in our bones, until we embody the change we want to see.

PLUS Authentic Kurdish treats made by one of our families will be for sale after class!

* Your generous donation is gratefully accepted. The families’ greatest need is laptop computers (for schoolwork, for jobs, for life), TVs, cell phones, and portable washing machines. They don’t have transportation, so it is difficult for them to get to laundromats with their kids and clothes, and the apartment complex laundry facilities are awful, unsafe, and difficult to haul stuff to. The women all have cracked hands from doing laundry in their bathtubs. Buck Mountain has purchased and installed one portable washer for one family and would like to do four or five more (at about $200/each). The biggest need, then, is any cash donations for these items or gift cards to Walmart or Target because these are places they can get to on public transit.

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