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.

Awaking Your Sensing Body:
A Continuum Workshop

with Gael Rosewood
September 29 – October 1, 2017 in Durham, NC

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.

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.

Making Waves: A Continuum Workshop

with Gael Rosewood
February 17-19, 2018 in Austin, TX

The shimmer of our existence is in rapport with the bio-sphere at every level, from the furthest stars to the spinning of molecules under our skin. The intelligence of our processes is evident through the exquisite orchestration of movement. Our ability to participate with this fundamental commonality of existence brings us home to ourselves, beyond cultural ideas of body, shape, or performance.

As we use breath, sound, and movement to develop a sensitivity to the intrinsic world of sensation, an inner world of fluidity opens to an endless resource for healing and renewal. It is this capacity to return to source that allows us to live from the inside out, playing, working, and creating as fluid organisms.

Cost: $350 for Saturday & Sunday. Add Monday for an additional $100 and Thurs or Fri, $100 for semi private or $150 for private.
To Register: Contact Brooks and pay $150 non-refundable deposit.

Wellsprings Practitioner Training:
Module 1 ~ Foundations of Continuum

with Robert Litman and Gael Rosewood
June 11-24, 2018, Vashon Island, WA

In these two weeks we will cover the basic principles, values and modalities of Continuum.
This training is appropriate for those who are being mentored by a Continuum Teacher Association member or on a teacher track with Continuum Movement, Inc and for those who wish to imbue their somatic practice with the modalities of Continuum and its approach to preparing the tissue and bringing clients into participation with their own underlying health. This two-week immersion into the practices of Continuum is a way to get beyond the distractions that compromise the depths of one’s own personal practice. The embodied learning of Continuum concepts coalesces the many different themes, styles and approaches that are expressed from workshop to workshop in order to ground one in the full understanding of the orchestration of this profound body of work, a moving philosophy.

Cost: $2100

Wellsprings Practitioner Training:
Module 2 ~ Practitioner Training

with Robert Litman and Gael Rosewood
June 26 – July 1, 2018, Vashon Island, WA

Following the 14 days of Foundational preparation, there will be an additional 6 days of Practitioner practice. In this segment of training, students will be integrating the first segment of training by giving ‘one on one’ sessions to others. This supervised process allows for the questions, the feedback and the discussions that do not happen in one’s personal practice. Should you be a Wellsprings Training graduate and wish to take this module without the proceeding two weeks, this is an excellent way to attain Continuing Education credits, and for those who are being mentored.

Cost: $900

Wellsprings Practitioner Training:
Module 3 ~ Teacher Practicum

with Robert Litman and Gael Rosewood
October 8-13, 2018, Vashon Island, WA

Following in the tradition of the first Teacher Trainings that Susan Harper offered with Emilie Conrad, this 6 day class allows teachers-in-training to learn, play and move together and to share in the initiation of teaching each other. This will be a safe environment to explore the challenges of stepping into the teaching role and to allow that process to be tended.
Each segment of preparing a class will be practiced and discussed from making meaning through words to demonstrating through movement, from creating and teaching lay-outs to managing group dynamics. In the event you are ready for the next step, this training prepares you to present a class in front of an ad hoc Review Pod of CTA teachers at a teacher gathering. Alternatively this training can provide the video of your teaching for review by your mentors in the Continuum Teacher Association. While the Foundations of Continuum 14 day training is highly recommended in order to bring an understanding of the history and breadth of Continuum practices, it is possible that this training may be taken by itself with the recommendation of your mentors.

Cost: $1000
