Vinn Arjuna Martí
is a movement artist, teacher, and spiritual friend, living in Portland, Ore. He teaches Soul Motion internationally, and is a certified Chaplain and Prayer Practitioner through the New Thought Alliance of Churches.
“Each time we gather to dance,” says Vinn Martí, “we are poised at an open portal to divine presence. This presence takes notice each time we use our body, heart, and mind to shape and shift the forms and textures of its creation. Each one of us occupies a unique vessel in which this presence is able to manifest and know itself. Our dance then becomes a vehicle to place our bodies and our souls in motion.”
“Consider the many benefits available when we focus attention on an unequivocal acceptance of the present moment in our everyday dance world,” says Vinn Marti. “We relax in the dance that is taking place. We move into a broader view of acceptance and compassion. Our gratitude quotient skyrockets to levels not experienced before. We move graciously between events, conditions, and experiences knowing that no feeling or thought is final. We are at ease with ourselves.

Vinn Martí, designer of Soul Motion, asks, “What is it like to move in a fresh, authentic manner? Is it possible to hang in the place within that allows for unbridled expressive contact with self, other, and divine?" This week in the natural sanctuary of Esalen will open doors that enter new rooms of creation, expression, and union with others.
