Music / Playlists

Full & Empty. Whether we are talking about your breath or your stomach or your attention or your presence, full and empty have sensations. This week we went to the edges to explore the feeling of full and empty and did our best to avoid the mushy middle. It’s juicy at the edges.

You can find this week’s playlists below. If you’d like to listen to them, you can find almost all the music on Spotify where you can listen for free! Please let me know if you have any questions about any of the music we dance to!

I’m not sure what I love more: the Pali word “tathata” or the translation “suchness” or “thusness.” “Thusness”? Really, all tathata means is “right now, it’s like this.” This is such a powerful notion that The Buddha used the term when he referred to himself: Tathagata or “One Who Knows and Sees Reality as it is.” (You can read a little something about tathata here.)

The mind loves the past and the future. The mind wants to push away some things and cling onto others. But the body can only reside in what is real and the only thing that’s real, the only thing we really have is the present moment. All we have is thusness.

You can find this week’s Thusness (or, Right Now, It’s Like This) playlists below. If you’d like to listen to them, you can find almost all the music on Spotify where you can listen for free! Please let me know if you have any questions about any of the music we dance to!

But first, here are some things you want to know about:

Cville Dance Co-Op: Sun Shine on Shy Spring with Susan ~ This Sunday, April 15

I’ll be offering music with that focus and holding the space for the Cville Dance Co-op on Sunday, April 15 from 10:15-12noon at Common Ground in the Jefferson School (a nice surprise!).
The Co-op http://www.cvilledancecoop.com/who-we-are/ is a substance free, non-verbal, barefoot, 115 minutes of freedance. No steps to learn, no teacher, nothing but what’s flowing and moving in your own body. Let the Sun Shine on this Shy Spring. I hope you’ll join us.

Before I get to the playlists and announcements and all of that, after a week of heart-centered practice here is a lovely meditation by Sarah Blondin that resonated with me. Listen to it when you need a reminder that of all the people in the world to whom you give your love and care, none deserve it more than you yourself (to paraphrase the Buddha).

Special thanks to Mary Linn for marking the 50th anniversary of MLK’s passing with me in the Tuesday and Wednesday classes. As always, it is a Joy to teach with her — especially a classic routine that is this juicy.

You can find this week’s Art of the Heart playlists 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!

Play with this: could we agree that life is not about success or things or comfort or pleasure or even happiness? Could we entertain the notion that the goal of life is aliveness?

If that could be the case, what is aliveness for you? How do you cultivate aliveness in your days? Do you notice when your life feels flat and a little, well, dead (which it does to everybody)? How do you reawaken aliveness when that happens?

Aliveness comes in lots of ways including rediscovering the life in things you’ve done/known for a long, long time. That’s what we did this week with Firedance, the rock version of ChakraDancer and one of the first routines I choreographed.

You can find this week’s Aliveness playlists 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!

But first, here are a bundle of things I know you want to know about:

Susan Facilitating at C’ville Dance Co-Op at Common Ground on Sunday, Apr 1, 10:15-noon
I’m excited to be providing the music and holding the space for the Cville Dance Coop on Sunday, April 1 from 10:15-12noon at Common Ground in the Jefferson School.

If you’re not familiar with the Coop, you can check it out here, but simply put it is a substance free, non-verbal, barefoot, 90 minutes of freedance. No steps to learn, no teacher, nothing but what’s flowing and moving in your own body.

I’m calling this playlist Rebirth of the Fool ~ interweaving the Tarot interpretation of The Fool with the rebirth of spring. In contrast to the contemporary understanding of “fool” as an silly or ignorant person, in the Tarot The Fool represents new beginnings, having faith in the future, having beginner’s luck, improvisation and believing in the universe.

Let’s do April Fools Day (and Easter, for that matter) from that perspective! I hope you’ll join us.
Location (Common Ground, 2nd floor of Jefferson School, 233 4th St NW)
Date/time: Sunday, Apr 1: doors open at 10:15am for warming up, entrance locks at 10:45am, dancing until noon, then closing circle
What to bring: Water bottle, comfortable clothes, optional donation for Common Ground
You can RSVP or ask questions here.

WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT NIA?

For more information about Nia and this rich system of training and learning? Everything Nia is at http://www.nianow.com…
If you’re traveling or moving, you can find a teacher or classes wherever you’re going.
Interested in teaching or deepening your practice? Check out the Nia White Belt Training. They are offered all around the world so you can find one near you or where you may want to go!

Balance can be found in both the physical and the energetic, the interior and the exterior, the meditative and the exuberant, and the movement (when spring was stirring) and the still (when winter came back for a visit).

You can find this week’s ChakraDancer/RockinDancer playlists 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!

But first, here are a bundle of things I know you want to know about:

Firedance: Spring Aliveness ~ March 26 & 27
In belated celebration of spring and St. Patrick’s Day, Susan shares the power and excitement of Firedance which uses the healing and heart-pounding music of Riverdance.
Mon, Mar 26, 1045-12noon
Tue, Mar 27, 840-940am

RockinDancer Rescheduled for Weds, Mar 28, 11am
After this week’s class was canceled due to weather, Mary Linn & Susan will teach their rocking version of ChakraDancer on Wednesday, Mar 28, 11am-1215pm at acac Albemarle Square!

Susan Facilitating at C’ville Dance Co-Op at Common Ground on Sunday, Apr 1, 10:15-noon
I’m excited to be providing the music and holding the space for the Cville Dance Coop on Sunday, April 1 from 10:15-12noon at Common Ground in the Jefferson School.

If you’re not familiar with the Coop, you can check it out here http://www.cvilledancecoop.com/who-we-are/
, but simply put it is a substance free, non-verbal, barefoot, 90 minutes of freedance. No steps to learn, no teacher, nothing but what’s flowing and moving in your own body.

I’m calling this playlist Rebirth of the Fool ~ interweaving the Tarot interpretation of The Fool with the rebirth of spring. In contrast to the contemporary understanding of “fool” as an silly or ignorant person, in the Tarot The Fool represents new beginnings, having faith in the future, having beginner’s luck, improvisation and believing in the universe.

Let’s do April Fools Day (and Easter, for that matter) from that perspective! I hope you’ll join us.

C’ville Dance Co-op, http://cvilledancecoop.com/

Location (Common Ground, 2nd floor of Jefferson School, 233 4th St NW)
Date/time: Sunday, Apr 1: doors open at 10:15am for warming up, entrance locks at 10:45am, dancing until noon, then closing circle
What to bring: Water bottle, comfortable clothes, optional donation for Common Ground
You can RSVP or ask questions here. https://www.facebook.com/events/356220461453209/

It’s not just what happens on the dance floor, it’s the way of everything. Things get shaken up and they settle down, they fly apart and they come together.

You can find this week’s Shake It Up, Settle It Down playlists 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!
