Saturday Nourishment Series ~~ Moving & Writing with Light & Shadow

Saturday Sep 28, 9am-12noon – Moving & Writing with Light: Nourishing Body & Eyes with Susan & Rebecca

Susan & Rebecca offer a morning to expand your perspective on two things that everybody has: a body and a smartphone. You don’t need to be a dancer or a photographer to change your perspective!

The word “photography” means “writing with light.” A photo isn’t a copy of something— it’s a story written *by light*! And light is weaving stories all around us, all the time.

Using the simple cameras that we all carry —the ones in our phones! — we’ll play with the stories of light around us and experience how changing our perspectives can change everything.

Susan will weave movement and mindfulness into the morning to practice being with light & shadow.

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.
