Soul Motion™: Sweat Ecstasy

Oct 06 - 08, 2017 Begins in 1 week
with Vinn Arjuna Martí

“Soul Motion is a conscious dance practice that offers students a view, a handle, a key, and a striker,” says Vinn Arjuna Martí. “The view is that we are all moving all the time; we are a part of a dynamic motion world and we participate in this ongoing change. The handle is attached to a doorway of an interior dance. We immerse ourselves in somatic fields of body, energy, force, and time, and we’re moved by rhythms audible and inaudible. The key unlocks these somatic rooms. We run, walk, shape-shift, and dance the sounds of music, breath, heartbeat, and the emptiness of the room.

“Each time we gather to dance,” says Vinn Arjuna 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.”
