Year-Long Program II

November 2016 - April 2017
Genesis Spiritual Life Center
Westfield MA

Work at a more advanced level, while maintaining the “beginner’s mind” so essential to this process. Examine important issues, such as: power dynamics, diverse modes of perception, and working in various contexts/environments. Design your year to meet individual goals. Bring a quandary or a question.  Experiment with the practice and explore new applications.

Six weekends (Friday 3:00-Sunday 1:30)
Each weekend includes: guided movement meditations/warm-ups, Authentic Movement sessions, practice and guidance in the witnessing relationship, exploration of the weekend’s theme, dialogue about the assigned readings, work with the imagination in other media, time outdoors, reports from participants about their connections to work and life, as well as silence and time to eat and laugh together.

Weekend Themes

The Chest of Drawers; Dreams; Transference and Power; The Senses, Sensuality and Sexuality; Body and World; and Life Stages and Endings


  • Contemplative Dance Year-Long Program I
