This week, we played with the energetic balance of yang and yin, fire and water, fierce and soft by dancing DragonFish: my version of Britta von Tagen’s routine Dragon. We’ll come back to it when I return from my adventures!

As I get ready to take a break from summer in the South, I’m deeply aware of how extraordinarily lucky I am. And not the least of my good fortunes is the opportunity I have to teach and dance and be with our community of movers both in Charlottesville and beyond. And for that I am so grateful.

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!

First, a couple of announcements:

A Day Away: a retreat for you
Take a day to rest, to move and dance, to make something, to eat nourishing food, to be together. On September 30, join me and Rebecca George for a day of self-care and relaxation at the Buck Mountain Episcopal Parish Hall in Earlysville.
Set down whatever you’re carrying, take a breath and feel the restorative power of a day away.

$100 if registered by August 30. $125 if registered by September 25. Limited to 20 participants.
Checks to SusaNia LLC and mailed to 1255 Sunset Avenue Ext., Charlottesville VA 22903 with indication of any food intolerances or at http://www.susanmcculley.com. Some scholarship money available, please inquire!

After a week away, it was delicious to come home to dance! We continued our focus on building compassion by nurturing boundaries. I often mistake boundaries for protection, defense and distance but instead, when I set my intention for increasing my generosity and compassion, boundaries soften and open my heart. Feel the difference for yourself – think about a situation in which you would like to have more openhearted, generous compassion. Then feel what a boundary would do to make your heart softer and more available vs. a boundary that feels defended.

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 to together with other pieces that lift you up, calm you and challenge you!

Subbing for Jeanne on Sunday, July 23, 12:45pm at acac Albemarle Square

Freedom and Form. In music it’s melody and rhythm. In the body, it’s muscles and bones. In a country, it’s liberty and justice. For health and sustainability, any system needs to have some of both freedom and form.

Can’t wait to hear what gets your heart healing (and pumping and moving and grooving!). ❤

 

What if every time we gather together – in a meeting, at a meal, in a movement class – we think of it as a pot luck. Everybody bringing what they have to share with each other. Everybody appreciating what is on offer. And what if these pot lucks weren’t about showing off our fanciest recipes or mooching a free meal but rather genuinely and honestly bringing what we have to give today. What if these pot lucks were about showing up as we really are. Wouldn’t that be sometimes messy and uncomfortable … and delicious?

Love Warrior at Love Fest! Saturday, June 24, 9:30-10:30am
I’m excited to be offering the Love Warrior movement experience at Love Fest on Saturday, June 24 from 9:30-10:30am at the IX Art Park (at 522 2nd St SE in Charlottesville). This is a movement experience that allows us to experience the sensation of the change we want to see in the world. We can then translate that sensation directly into action. Nothing will shift, we won’t change a thing until we feel it in our bones, until we embody the change we want to see. The event is FREE and appropriate for all levels of fitness and experience. We will be dancing on concrete floors so please wear comfy shoes! I hope you’ll join me!

July 4 Nia ~ Tuesday, July 4, 8:30-9:30am
As part of the special acac holiday schedule, join me for Nia on Tuesday, July 4 from 8:30-9:30am in the Group Ex Studio at acac downtown! Liberty and justice for all. See you then.

Take a SHORT survey, get some art!
As we look ahead to creating events for our dancing, creating community, we want to know what is in your heart and mind. Whether or not you have ever attended a retreat with us (even if you have never wanted to) would you please take 5 minutes to fill out this simple survey? (I promise, it won’t take long — unless you want to write more and even then, it won’t take longer than 10!)
Here’s the link to the survey:
https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/9WZ8D73
The survey is completely anonymous but if you’d like a little sugar for your effort, please let me know when you’ve filled it out and I will send you an electronic print of any piece of my art that you like (go to https://www.instagram.com/susanjmcculley or http://www.susanmcculley.com/art/ to browse!).

In the midst of playing with the power of intensity this week, I came across this short recording from ground-breaking mindfulness teacher, Jon Kabat-Zin. He explains how mindfulness and presence gives us the tools we need in stressful situations. It’s fine to not know what we’re doing, as long as we know where we are. Check it out here.

Remember that involuntary intensity will show up for each of us. By choosing voluntary intensity, we strengthen our ability to stay present when the wheels come off and things are unpleasant but also when pleasure and joy and love is strong!

All the playlists from the week are below or you can listen to them by going to Spotify! Dance for free at Spotify! Sign up, follow me at “susanmcculley” and you’ll find my public playlists ~ just click and listen! AND IF YOU LISTEN to my playlists on Spotify, please let me know. I’m evaluating whether or not continuing to put them up is worth doing. Email or put a comment below or let me know when you see me.

And first the announce-y type things:

Invisible Net of Love for Antje Waxman
Our friend and Nia / Egoscue teacher, Antje Waxman’s husband is terribly ill and they could use some support and nourishment. If you’d like to offer a meal for them, please go here to sign up. http://www.takethemameal.com/meals.php?t=JHSX5292 Thank you for being part of the invisible net of love.

Love Warrior at Love Fest! Saturday, June 24, 9:30-10:30am
I’m excited to be offering the Love Warrior movement experience at Love Fest on Saturday, June 24 from 9:30-10:30am at the IX Art Park (at 522 2nd St SE in Charlottesville). This is a movement experience that allows us to experience the sensation of the change we want to see in the world. We can then translate that sensation directly into action. Nothing will shift, we won’t change a thing until we feel it in our bones, until we embody the change we want to see. The event is FREE and appropriate for all levels of fitness and experience. I hope you’ll join me!

Take a SHORT survey, get some art!
As we look ahead to creating events for our dancing, creating community, we want to know what is in your heart and mind. Whether or not you have ever attended a retreat with us (even if you have never wanted to) would you please take 5 minutes to fill out this simple survey? (I promise, it won’t take long — unless you want to write more and even then, it won’t take longer than 10!)
Here’s the link to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/9WZ8D73
The survey is completely anonymous but if you’d like a little sugar for your effort, please let me know when you’ve filled it out and I will send you an electronic print of any piece of my art that you like (go to https://www.instagram.com/susanjmcculley
or http://www.susanmcculley.com/art/ to browse!).
