Music & Other Gems Feb 27-Mar 3, 2017 – Reorganizing: Chaos Theory & The Butterfly Effect

reorganizing-022417

What if chaos isn’t anything to be afraid of? What if chaos is a way of finding new patterns and possibilities? This week we played with the 5 Sensations of Fitness, noticing how they reorganized movement and our bodies. Also chaos freedances.

Here are a couple of videos on Chaos Theory & The Butterfly Effect videos that you might enjoy in light of this week’s practice:

And speaking of chaos, check out the brilliant (Charlottesville Nia practitioner) Dahlia Lithwick’s 2012 piece on…well, a certain kind of chaos.

All the playlists from the week are below or you can listen to them by going to Spotify! 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 type things:

• Love Warrior: embody a movement ~ Friday, Mar 3, 6-730pm
a moving experience of activism in support of five local refugee families
Buck Mountain Episcopal Church Parish Hall
Join Susan for the launch of a new routine 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.
This is a donate-what-you-can event. All proceeds go to 5 local refugee families. Authentic Syrian treats available for sale after class, too! Please join us and bring a friend.

• FREE Workshop: Conscious Communication with Mary Linn & Susan ~ March 25, 3-5pm
A FREE heARTful Action gathering, Saturday, March 25, 2o17, 3-5pm
at the Quaker Meeting House at 1104 Forest St, Charlottesville
In our polarized, highly-charged political environment, a simple conversation can be tricky, scary and even dangerous. More and more, we may find ourselves avoiding conversations about the things that matter to us most for fear of an argument or damaging a relationship.
In this free workshop, we will explore practical ways to approach conversations (either in person or on-line) that promote connection, curiosity and clarity. Join us to learn ways of talking to even the prickliest people with calm and kindness. Bring a journal and a friend!
Please RSVP to sjmnia@gmail.com or on the Facebook event page (https://www.facebook.com/events/1921663034719326/) so we know how many people to expect. Wear comfortable clothes, bring a journal and a friend!

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