The Morning Sojourn will be offered simultaneously in three places with the same format: each morning we will gather in silence and begin with a short sit allowing the dance to arrive from a place of stillness. There will be no guided instruction... Just each of us meeting the day, the music, and the dance as it unfolds. We’ll exit in silence.
Each participant will receive a custom journal created specifically for this experience and the encouragement to make daily entries. An online blog will be available to each dancer to share our individual experiences with each other. We hope to foster greater connection among all three communities by not only sharing this experience, but by writing about it together.
Lastly the three facilitators will share play lists so that music will also draw us together.
