body through the breath and sound and intrinsic motion experiments Movement
arises out of our biological connection to the life of the sea. The diverse of
Continuum Movement to prepare for points of departure in open exploration into
fluctuations and motility of our fluid origins are available to us in the fluid system and
gravity and space, invite the mutable shaping, dissolution and reshaping potential of
connective tissue of our bodies. In this session we will play with shapes as the fluid
dynamics. This ocean still resides within us, in our blood, lymph, and evolutionary
portals in the web of life forms: our oceanic origins the development of cerebrospinal
fluid and in our cells. These evolutionary streams and tides and spirals remain in
ongoing shifting relationship with gravity, light and space. The body you inhabit is a
living fluid prayer of exchange between Heaven and Earth.
