In Continuum, we explore new ways of moving our bodies, and participating more fully with the intrinsic, internal movements that are always expressing themselves through our bodies.
Continuum explores the qualities of fluidity in all aspects of life, movement, and embodiment. We value the fact that the body is 70% water and that as a fluid system we are living on a planet that is also 70% water resonating with all other fluid systems. There is great potential to be tapped from inquiring into all aspects of being a part of a fluid bio-intelligent system.
Continuum increases the variability, dexterity, & capacity of our breath. Giving ourselves the opportunity to change the way we breathe offers our system options we might not otherwise find. This allows us to be responsive to the necessity of each moment of our lives by accommodating with the most supportive breath for any given context.
Continuum explores sound as a vibratory quality of breath. We experience its effects on us, which are as many and varied as sounds we can produce.
Where there is sound and movement, there is silence and stillness, which are equally rich resources to explore.
Continuum invites us to refine our attentiveness, mindfulness, and consciousness of our relationship to our body, our health, other beings, our environment, and the world in which we live. Participants cultivate a refined degree of awareness, and learn to trust that there is deep wisdom that guides the body to self-regulate, if given the opportunity to move and express itself freely.
Continuum asks us to become aware of habit patterns. This allows us to choose which habits support us and for those habits that don’t, explore alternatives to them.
Continuum considers what we call the “body” as a creative process, rather than as an object. The possibilities for healing, adaptability, innovation, growth, and change increase as Continuum practice invites us to explore our embodied lives as an unfolding process.
Continuum invites us to refine and elaborate our "felt sense" of sensation as a rich resource for healing and self-emergence. Learning to be informed by our sensory perceptions without the overlay of interpretations, conclusions, and personal stories can more effectively inform our choices of how we care for ourselves, others, and the world. In Continuum practice, we learn to distinguish our biology from our biography.
Continuum invites finding pleasure and enjoyment in our experience of moving, breathing, and being embodied.
Continuum cultivates curiosity and a sense of open-ended inquiry. Stepping outside of our preconceived notions and the popular cultural models of what we think of as “the body” we can discover the deep inner world that is an unending resource for healing, adaptability, and change.
