Saturday Nourishment Series ~~ The Art of Seeing: Nourishing Body & Mind

The Art of Seeing: Nourishing Body & Mind
with Susan & Rebecca
Saturday Sep 28, 9-12noon –

When we move through our familiar world every day, sometimes we stop actually *seeing* it. But we all know the feeling of fresh newness that comes from rearranging your living room, or clearing off a long-cluttered countertop? It’s a feeling of seeing it for the first time.

What if a little mindfulness exercise with the camera on your cell phone could give you that feeling —without even having to clean anything!? What if taking a few minutes to freshen up your perspective could change the way you see everything? 

Susan & Rebecca offer a morning to expand your perspective on two things that everybody has: a body and a smartphone. Susan weaves movement and mindfulness into the morning to practice being with perspective, light & shadow and how that feels in the body. Rebecca guides us in ways of seeing the everyday in a new way. Using that most unlikely of tools, the camera on your cell phone, we’ll play with some mindfulness techniques to aid us on our journeys to more clearly see the beauty in our world, each other, and ourselves.

No experience in photography or movement needed, just bring a phone or tablet with a built-in camera and your body.

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.

Saturday Nourishment Series ~~ Nourishing the Nervous System with Mindful Movement

Sat. October 26, 9-12noon – Nourishing the Nervous System with Mindful Movement with Emily Wright

The body is a central portal to nervous system regulation. When we are regulated and integrated, we have the capacity to be our most awake, available, creative, curious, flexible selves. Using a blend of guided movement work, journaling, visual art-making, poetry, and mindfulness practices, participants will explore states of autonomic nervous system regulation as a means to establish safe, nourishing connections to ourselves, each other, and the natural world. No prior movement experience necessary. All bodies, all abilities welcome. Participants should bring writing materials and dress in comfortable clothes for movement. 

About the instructor: Emily Wright, MFA, PhD, is a movement educator, author, and practitioner. She offers classes and workshops in functional movement, contact improvisation, and intergenerational community dance informed by her extensive background in dance and other somatic disciplines.

All bodies welcome. No experience in movement needed.

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.
