Music & Other Gems May 15-18, 2017 – Ready Now

“The best way to prepare for the next pose is to be fully in this one.” – Kelly Stine

I am addicted to planning so I can control what happens and so that I can be ready. What happens if I am so present in this moment, that I’m ready now?

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:

Memorial Day Nia – Monday, May 29 from 11-12:15pm

Come spend a delicious day playing at the sweet intersection of movement, stillness and art. We’ll explore the creative magic of the number 7 and the power of play for inspiration and restoration. No experience in anything is necessary. All you need is a willingness to see what happens and eat delicious, healthy meals. The retreat provides everything you need for an uplifting, rejuvenating day. Susan offers the structure and guidance for movement, meditation, and creative jaunts. Rebecca caters extraordinary vegetarian, gluten-free, seasonal food (tea, snack, lunch). And it doesn’t stop with one day. Also included is a 6-week series of music, meditations, and prompts to keep you in the flow. Some scholarship is available ~ email me for more on that (sjmnia@gmail.com).
Early Bird: $100 if registered by May 24. Late Bird: $125 if registered by June 20
Limited to 20 participants.
Checks to SusaNia LLC and mailed to 1255 Sunset Avenue Ext., Charlottesville VA 22903 with registration form or at http://www.susanmcculley.com.

dance.sit.create… research question
Please help me prepare for the upcoming retreat by answering this question: Are you an artist? If you said yes, what is it about you and/or your life that makes you one? If you said no, what would have to be different about you and/or your life for you to be one? Please feel free to answer in the comments or PM me! Thanks, y’all.
