Music & Other Goodness ~ May 27-30 2019 ~ Go Gentle Memorial Day

In case you missed it in the original post, this extraordinary video about empathy made by the Cleveland Clinic asks the powerful question: if you could see what they see, feel what they feel, would you treat them differently? Please please, open your heart, be brave and watch it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDDWvj_q-o8

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!

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)!

Saturday Nourishment Series on 4th Saturdays starts June 22!
Step into monthly nourishing Saturday morning experiences on fourth Saturdays at the Studio at Dancing Water. Susan (sometimes with a guest teacher) will offer holistic, integrated experiences for all parts of you. Intimate, small group setting in a studio in the trees overlooking the river ~~ often with opportunities to stay on the land afterward.

Saturday June 22, 9-12noon – Nourishing Movement: Earth, Water & Sky with Susan ~
A morning of integrated movement, breath and meditation practices for all bodies and experience levels. Susan’s lightly guided teaching from the ground up – includes developmental movement, unchoreographed mindful movement, breath and meditation. Learn practices for promoting healing, strength and flexibility in body, mind and heart. If you like, from 12-2pm, bring a lunch and savor it on the porch, on the bench overlooking the river or on a rock in the middle of it. Bring water shoes and you could even sit in the water. $52.
