"Continuum is about the artistry of human existence…an inquiry into creative flourishing."
—Emilie Conrad
Continuum Movement® is a dynamic inquiry into what it is to be a human being. “It provides a method to consciously explore our self as an unfolding biological and planetary process” say Donnalea Van Vleet Goelz.
