For over the last 40 years, Lila's life has been in experimental dance and theater, most of that while living in Paris, France. She has always been drawn to and influenced by deep listening and has experience in several somatic approaches to movement. Although voice in many forms was always a part of her artistic world, after being introduced to Continuum in the early 2000's, she began experimenting with new expressions of sounded breath.
In 2009, she directed and published the first of a series of bilingual DVDs (English-French) on Somatic Approaches and Artistic Creation, in collaboration with Odile Rouquet's organization "Recherche en Mouvement." For this DVD, she interviewed Emilie Conrad and Linda Rabin on Continuum.
Her desire to teach Continuum lies in how powerful she feels the approach is to inward self-realization and self-help while also organically connecting to a greater sense of self and life in the larger scheme of existence. She feels Continuum is accessible to all, softens the edges, reduces tension, allows feeling good and good feeling for those who want to participate. Continuum is a process that reveals and heals. Since completing the Continuum Wellsprings training in 2016 and becoming a Continuum teacher in 2018, she has been working with individuals and small groups to resonate with others in the extra-ordinary potential of this approach to self-understanding and well-being.
Lila works out of Dartmouth, Massachusetts; Paris, France; and countries in West Africa (Mali, Senegal, Benin).
