Music & Goodness ~ Apr 8 –11, 2019 ~ Embodied Presence: The Lion’s Roar

It’s been a wild week in Charlottesville, y’all. The UVA men’s basketball team won the national championship for the first time…ever. Basketball gets me through the winter with its long season and exciting games but I love this team not just for how they play but for the way they ARE.

After the win on Monday night, head coach Tony Bennett told the team, “Don’t let this change you. It doesn’t have to. Stay humble and stay thankful.” This, to me, is an embodiment of The Lion’s Roar: the absolute confidence that you can be with, feel and handle anything. You can stay who you are and not let the big wins or the big losses change you. What happens isn’t who you are, it’s just what happens. You get to choose who you are as whatever happens unfolds.

Below are our playlists for the week. If you’d like to listen to the music, you can find almost all the songs on Spotify (you can listen for free)! As always, please let me know if you have any questions about any of the music we dance to!

And friends, I am always ALWAYS looking for new music. Do you have a song that you love to move to or that moves you? I’d love to know what it is! Please respond in the comments below or email me at sjmnia@gmail.com!

Before the playlists, some announcements of things that are happening!

Honoring the Effect of Trauma in our Lives with Larry Goldstein and Wendy Hubbard April 27
Larry Goldstein and Wendy Hubbard lead a workshop on releasing the grip of trauma using structures work, personal stories, and group work. Structures enable a person to go back safely to a traumatic memory with crucial support that was missing then and offers fresh options — an alternative memory – a different outcome in which basic human needs are met and longing for love and protection are fulfilled. This reconstructs inner implicit memory maps in the brain and helps people become viscerally acquainted with feelings that were lacking early in their lives. Pre-course online class Saturday, April 20, 3-5pm, In Person One-Day Class Saturday, April 27, 10-6p, Post-course online class, Saturday, May 4, 3-5pm. Cost $150. Limited to 12 participants. To register and for more information, contact Wendy Hubbard at whubbard0@gmail.com.
