Potent Spaces: Part Two
In visual art “negative space” is the space between, within and surrounding an object in an image, that often forms another image or symbol. The “positive space” is the focus of the image, the form of the object itself, but the space between, within and surrounding the object is just as important. Each space describes the other.
In Continuum, we look at both of these spaces as being full of potential, power and possibility. We call this Potent Space. During these winter months, we will learn to partner with the Potent Spaces within our bodies and access the Potent Space, or Relational Space, that connects us to others, the world around us, and out to the infinite for energy, support, and inspiration. In this time of extended separations, it is particularly important to lean into our relational spaces and listen deeply to the possibility that our shared voices can cross any distance or divide.
What is Continuum?
Continuum is a deeply meditative practice that increases awareness by cueing the mind and body to slow down with audible breath and subtle movements. Continuum enhances our ability to rest into what is, to be in the Here and Now, and to be happier in our own skins. By reconnecting to what is alive in each of us with more empathy and compassion for ourselves, we may find it easier to perceive the same in others & offer that gift out into the world around us.
These weekly classes are anchored by a group of committed explorers who always welcome new explorers with open arms. Think of carving this 1.5-hour block of time out as a personal weekly retreat or spiritual bath! Isn’t it time to give your Self the gift of bathing in a pool of rest, reflection, acceptance, compassion, discovery, and inspiration?
The longer format classes of Continuum are specifically designed to create a time and space for you to explore what it means to be in a human body-mind. Breath, vocalized sounds, meditative awareness, visual imagery, and simple, biological movements will help you recover and restore sensation and increase the innate fluid movement responses of your body that get lost in the speed of modern life.
Appropriate for all ages and abilities. Anyone who was once an infant has an entire library of body-knowledge to draw upon. Bring your curiosity and an open mind, and you’ll have everything you need!
Please wear comfortable layers of clothing you feel most at ease in, have a notebook to write in and a full water bottle on hand.
Every class has its own Zoom link and password, advance registration is required *AT LEAST 2 HOURS PRIOR* to class start time to reserve your online space.

Anyone who registers for any of these winter classes will be invited to Shared Voices, a special event on Saturday, March 20 from 1:00-4:00 pm. Shared Voices is a 3-hour online workshop blending together three unique voices of three Continuum teachers, Megan Bathory-Peeler, Elaine Colandrea and Linda Rabin. Their somatic harmonies will enliven and inspire your practice of Continuum as we welcome Spring together on the Vernal Equinox!
Shared Voices will be open to participants of Continuum Somanautiko’s winter classes at no additional charge.
