Dancing Water Practices ~ Jul 13 – 19, 2020 ~ Intent + Action = Impact

Remember that old saying? “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.”

We know this: we can’t just think we want to do something and have it amount to anything. So yesyesyes, intention and action. But then, it gets tricky. Then it requires some big brave-y courage.

Intent without action goes nowhere.
Action without intent is fruitless.

We need intent to align with our goals and values.
We need action to carry it out.

And now here’s the tricky, brave-y courageous part: we then need to look squarely at the impact of our actions ~ on the body, our hearts, our relationships, our communities ~ and make sure that the impact and the intention align. Instead of doubling down on our actions, pleading that’s not what we meant, we need to be willing to change. We need to muster the heart and the wisdom to square up what we meant to do with what actually happened.

We can do this.

SPECIAL LIVE CLASS! Tuesday, July 21 at 11am
Susan Guest Teaching on Wise Owl Wellness LIVE on Tuesday, July 21 at 11am Eastern

I’m delighted to be teaching a special LIVE class for my friend and colleague, Kristy Harvey’s Wise Owl Wellness LIVE group on Tuesday, July 21 at 11am Eastern.

Join for FREE for a week and enjoy Kristy’s library of over 150 classes ~ yoga, Nia, meditation, HIIT, Barre and MORE! You can then join in up to 10 LIVE classes every week ~~ including my special class on Tuesday, July 21 at 11am. I’ll be teaching a hybrid routine that I call Voice of the World that blends the collaborative world music of Afro Celt Sound System and 1 Giant Leap. Our focus, in these difficult days, is on the balance of linear and circular, clarity and fluidity, knowing and not-knowing. At the end of your free trial, we hope you will decide to stick around and purchase a membership that helps support Kristy, Penny the Yoga Cat, and guest teachers like me!

Please click here and request to join the group and Kristy will sign you up for the week of my class!

~~~ Help Guide Dancing Water Online Offerings ~~~ Please take a Survey! ~~~

It’s been a wild few months at Dancing Water (well, everywhere). In mid-March I dove into creating online classes ~ learning the technology, figuring out the music, getting them out into the world. My YouTube Channel is now home to more than 100 classes in 5 different categories that are available to anyone who needs them ~ no matter where they are and no matter what their circumstances. I am so grateful for all the support, donations, energy and love that I got from all of you.

What began as a short-term situation, however, has stretched longer than I imagined. And (depending on what news you read) it looks like there is no end in sight.

So I’m taking some time to reorient and reflect. If you’ll indulge me, I’m asking for your help again. Would you please take this survey about what we’ve created so far together?

It’s just 10 questions and will take you less than 5 minutes. Your responses will be invaluable as I make decisions about what my professional offerings look like from here. You can find the survey here.

Thank you for helping to guide and grow the Dancing Water Community!
