Localmotion, Localmotive

Robin: This body. Fleshy garment. Transmitter/receiver. Mobile home. State-of-the-art set-up for all your relating and creating. Though it seems to be the defining factor of life on earth to have a body, do you ever find yourself a short distance from yours? This week at CEC, we’ll challenge our zombie-like tendencies to let conditioning take the wheel, and really let the body drive, in its full aliveness, fueled by present moment sensory experience, and gentle invitations (heart riding shotgun, and brain, for this trip, in the back). The territory for this exploration is the dance floor, our co-created field, and your sensory world, in and out. Clear some floor space, turn up the volume, and let’s move!

Trip the Light Fantastick

James: The actual line, from my namesake, John Milton, is this: “Come, and trip it as ye go, On the light fantastick toe.” What I think he’s saying here is: you have fantastic toes. Your whole foot, actually, is pretty cool, hinges of joints, pulleys of tendons and muscles. Don’t even get me started about your face. For this sit, we are going to settle into the contours of our body, the shape of us, infuse it with our attention and see what we find.

There’s A Song In The Clearing

Luke: This Monday evening’s consciousness exploration will send us on a journey into the world of song. We’ll use our body instruments and let our voices assist in releasing tension held in our bodies. Can we experience a deepened relationship with a song and feel it in a new way? Come along on an adventure into an imaginative space and allow your very own song to manifest. Have pen and paper (or whatever writing tool works for you) handy for a portion of this sit.
