It has been such a pleasure to see such a lit up group of people come to dance and drum with us this summer. It also feels like timely work to help middle schoolers connect with themselves and each other through wilderness adventures.
Thank you for your support of our offerings and we look forward to seeing you soon!
We have marimba ensemble classes on July 31st and we hope to see you there. We’re not sure when another one of these will be offered and if you or your child likes the sound of the marimba, we’d love to have you!
We also have a variety of offerings for August including another Movement as Medicine with live music and Women’s drumming class on Sunday, August 21st. Full details below.
thanks for being you,
Arlyn & David

During this fun and engaging rhythm experience, we will focus on embodying rhythms through rhythmic vocalizations, hand gestures and stepping cycles. We will be using the traditional South Indian rhythm practice of Solkattu to deepen our relationship with rhythm, music and life. This fun phrase-centered approach aids musicians and artists of all kinds to get the visceral sensations of many different rhythmic applications from the naturally occurring universal concepts and musical uses of internalizing pulse, subdivisions, syncopation, cross-rhythms, and poly-rhythms. Suggested donation $10-$20

Author and activist Sarah Wilson shares some practices —
– Go to your edge. Do what scares you and embrace discomfort daily. Use it to grow into your Big Life.
– Buy Less, Live More. Break the cycle of mindless consumption and get light with your life.
– Become a soul nerd. Embrace poetry, deep reading, art, and classical music to light up your intellect.
– Get ‘full-fat spiritual’. How to have an active practice – beyond the ‘lite’ ‘rainbows and unicorns’ – and use it to change the world.
– Hike. Just hike. Walking in nature reconnects us with ourselves, and with our true purpose.
– Practise wild activism. If you can get 3.5 per cent of a population to participate in sustained, non-violent protest, change happens. We create our better world.
