“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.
“This is the Dance of the Master: The movement of the moment is his only concern,” writes Vinn Martí. “She cultivates and nourishes the return again and again to the present. He sees total view, and pauses with ease. She moves through the dance floor with confidence. No body is ever challenged to do anything by his presence. She supports all in their expression of sound shaped by the body.
“Are you ready to rediscover your body relaxed and restored to its natural birthright of flexibility, ease, and wonder?” asks Vinn Martí. “Then join us to create dances of spacious teaching and learning of creativity, relationships, and sacred prayer. In our time together we will open the portals of unity and meet the curious player and the prayer within. With a light touch and deep inquiry we’ll dance the dance of relaxed liberation, and cultivate the power to soar high above the tensions and constrictions that hold us in freeze frame.
