Music & Other Gems Jan 15-18, 2018 – Disciplined Nonconformist, Forget Your Perfect Offering

Ah, MLK week. So juicy and full of everything. I’ve been fine tuning this playlist for years. This year’s tweak was the addition of Leonard Cohen’s Anthem. If you haven’t heard it (or if you haven’t heard it recently, as in if you haven’t heard it TODAY) go listen! 

And then, watch the All Souls’ Unitarian Church Solidarity Sing. On Jan. 21, 2017, after the Women’s March, people gathered in All Souls’ sanctuary to sing Anthem. The video produced by SkipperFilms.com is beautiful and my friends, have hankies handy.

Thanks to everybody who came out to dance, especially on a holiday. And a special thanks to Mary Linn for jumping in on Wednesday when I needed a day of radical self care. The playlists from the week are below. If you’d like to listen to them, you can find almost all the music on Spotify where you can listen for free! Put the music we dance together with other pieces that lift you up, calm you, and challenge you!

But first, here are a couple of things I know you want to know about:

Freedom to Move Workshop with Life Coach Heidi Shaner ~ Saturday, January 27, 2-5pm
Do you wish you could DANCE WITHOUT INHIBITION like you dance when you’re alone? YOU CAN! Join Edwin Roa, founder of Zabor Dance and Heidi Shaner, Strategic Intervention Life Coach, for an intensive workshop.

You’ve set your new year’s resolution so why not include EMOTIONAL WEIGHT LOSS? Yes! We’re integrating the best of both worlds: physical and emotional for an amazing experience of creativity and freedom.

What’s holding you back from moving your feet, hips, and shoulders freely? What obstacles prevent you from experiencing joy in your body?

We’ll explore the mind/body connection, how obstacles are created, what we really want, and how we can shift resistance through movement and discussion. We’ll create and perform a group dance to celebrate in this 3 hour workshop.

Join us for this self care, self love exploration and find freedom, joy, and connection in movement.

All are welcome, open to everyone.

Get out of your own way! Unleash your soul!
