Awaking Your Sensing Body:
A Continuum Workshop

with Gael Rosewood and Robert Litman
June 10-16, 2017 on Vashon Island, WA

The body is a scribe on this life’s journey from spirit through the material world, recording our multidimensional awareness and reactions. When these physical imprints remain unconscious they act as impediments, imbalances or conflicts. As we become present to the fullness of our experience, our mind, body, emotions, and imagination move in concert with the artful discovery of our true and ever changing self. Our electronic age has subverted a basic engagement with the elemental energies of life. This pervasive cultural experience demands a speed of response that limits us to patterned, repetitive, and linear movements. For all of our material comforts, the ‘flight/fight’ aspect of our nervous system is exacting a high price in ambient stress, anxiety, and the loss of sensuality in everyday being.

Continuum as a movement practice provides the tools to go beyond the limitations of the cultural view of body and self, opening our perception to a lived experience that is rooted in our immediate sensate world. This inquiry explores a premise that the fluid within our bodies, planet, and universe functions as a resonant stream of bio-intelligence. As we cultivate our experience of belonging to the innate fluidity of life, we begin to reclaim our primal birthright to embody pleasure and wholeness. Fluid movement is a nourishment for passion as well as health and harmony.

Dimensions of Integration:
A Movement Inquiry Retreat

with Kevin Frank, Caryn McHose, and Gael Rosewood
July 28 – August 2, 2017 on Vashon Island, WA

Habits, even good ones, can be stultifying over time. Research confirms that the intelligence, strength, and resilience of our fascial and neural networks thrive when refreshed and challenged in new ways.

What allows each of us to innovate and meaningfully integrate body/mind learning? This Rolf Movement® retreat, held on Vashon Island off the coast of Seattle, is a time for renewal on many levels: resting on the earth–not the floor–space beyond four walls–alive air on the skin. It’s an opportunity to renew one’s relationship with Earth, and Sky, with processes that mirror what’s inside each of our bodies.

Our body is our container. The numb places are the dumb places, unable to adapt, respond, differentiate, or feel support and intelligence. As more of our being comes into presence we find new capacities to allow life to flow through–on all the channels from intellect, to emotion to functional fitness.
This five-day retreat is an inquiry that asks an open question: What process enables experiences of fluidity, lengthening, and sensory differentiation to land? What’s vital for new experience to translate into new resources for you?

A 10 Day Health Intensive

with Gael Rosewood and Robert Litman
September 8-17, 2017 on Vashon Island, WA

There are times when pausing is wise: life cycle transitions, the ending of a job or a marriage, a health crisis, a passage of grieving, or simply not knowing the next step. Creativity is a non-linear process and the pathway of healing is the same. Yet we often feel anxious in those times without forward momentum. Old habits and patterned ways of perceiving and responding tend to exert more control when we feel more insecure. Or we mistake the pregnant pause for depression.

This 10-day retreat is a radical shift from the usual weekend getaway or workshop. Allow one door to close so that another may open. Focus on the re-calibration of status quo from the point of view of your breath, your resting point, your sense of aliveness. Learn the skills of being alert to the inner flow of information that lives beyond the world of words and social activities; sensations, movement impulses, images and imagination.

Wellsprings of Inspiration:
A Gathering of Peers and Colleagues

with Gael Rosewood
October 12-18, 2017 in Spain

This 5-day retreat is a time for reconnecting with our community from the depth and the breadth of our shared Continuum Inquiry. Wellsprings participants, Continuum teachers, and those who have made Continuum a part of their life will have an opportunity to weave a potent field together as we let our conversations unfold.

From the depths of the dives that an experienced group can conjure and hold for each other, new discoveries and lay-outs emerge. This is how the work evolves. Our own bodies need these times of emersion, tending and listening, away from the daily routines. Our souls are nourished by the community of kindred spirits.

A Continuum Workshop

with Gael Rosewood
October 20-22, 2017 in Paris, France

Continuum as a movement practice provides the tools to go beyond the limitations of the cultural view of body and self, opening our perception to a lived experience that is rooted in our immediate sensate world. This inquiry explores a premise that the fluid within our bodies, the planet, and the universe functions as a resonant stream of bio-intelligence. Clouds draw the water up to become rain; the ocean takes the river back into itself. As you participate in the dynamic interplay of breath, sound, and wave-like fluid movement, you will have access to restoring ease and well-being at will.

The skills developed in this practice bring you in contact with your inner teacher. Liquidity of movement and relaxation of breathing create a frequency of a love based body. The qualities of water are showing us how we move inside grace.

Wellsprings Retreat:
Tending the Cadence of Winter Stillness

with Robert Litman and Gael Rosewood
Dec 28, 2017 – Jan 2, 2018, Vashon Island, WA

Based on the visionary work of Emilie Conrad, founder of Continuum Movement, this workshop furthers her inquiry into the power of movement as medicine. Healing, growth, and development are all variations of the same event. To meet oneself with engaged awareness of these processes is an act of generosity toward self. This kindness penetrates our ability to adapt and respond to the demands of our environment.

After the helter-skelter of the holidays, give yourself the gift of quiet, of dark, the sound of rain, a fire in the hearth and the gentle companionship of others tracing their pathways of dreams, sensations, and silence. Dynamic stillness is a portal to multi-dimensional information and nourishment. This time follows the tradition of Emilie’s emphasis on hybernative practices which resonate with the restorative cycle of winter, the bottom of the exhale.
