Music & Goodness ~ May 20-23 2019 ~ Holistic Holroyd: Seselelame

Seselelame is the West African term that describes our ability as humans to sense everything in our flesh and bones. Seselelame describes a sensory balance from internal and external sources, physical, mental, emotional — everything in the world. As movers, we use this holistic approach to sensing to move as a whole, as a system rather than a compilation of separate parts.

Given our focus on holistic, integrated, systemic movement this week, Bob Holroyd’s layered, varied global music seemed like the perfect fit. His delicious work has been described as a “collage of seemingly disparate styles and instrumentation producing ambient, global electronica, world chill, abstract dance and new age classical sound.” https://www.discogs.com/artist/25362-Bob-Holroyd/tracks He is one of my favorite artists to listen and move to and I recommend digging into his extensive library of music.
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, here is the scoop on a whole slew of great things happening this spring and summer!

Nourishing Movement Classes at the Studio at Dancing Water
Please join me for Nourishing Movement classes at the studio at Dancing Water* on Thursday mornings from 11-1215pm (Thursday, May 30 and Jun 6 are full. I’ve started a waiting list for the full classes and there is still space in Jun 13 & 20). Classes are a mix of guided and unguided movement, meditation and creativity! Come join us in the trees by the river for grounded, flowing, spacious, nourishing movement. Go HERE to sign up!
* The Studio at Dancing Water is at 2370 Old Lynchburg Road ~ detailed directions at http://www.susanmcculley.com and via email when you sign up!

Class + Pop Up Pot Luck at the Studio at Dancing Water on Jun 13
On Thursday, Jun 13, come to Nourishing Movement class at Dancing Water and stay for a Pop Up Pot Luck! Nourish yourself with movement, then bring something nourishing to share (or bring your own lunch if you’d prefer) to enjoy together on the deck, the porch or by the river! Water shoes and/or sturdy walking shoes might be a good choice if you’d like to go down the trail to the river (or even put your feet in)!

Summer Schedule Shift
For the acac summer schedule (starting June 13), Jeanne Catherine will be teaching the Thursday morning 8:40-9:40am class. I will be teaching on Thursday mornings at the Studio at Dancing Water…so lots of choices for nourishing movement!
