Soul Motion®: Tenderness at the Heart of the Dance

Dec 21 - 28, 2018 Begins in 7 months
with Zuza Engler & Scott Engler

Soul is flow, an ever-changing cloudscape of textures, hues, sensations, scents, and feelings. Soul is how the deathless Presence meets and moves a finite human body. In this workshop, we will reclaim the body-in-motion as a doorway to the soul’s flow, to the life that is unfolding just under the surface of everyday forgetting.
