Continuum practices increase awareness and physical capacity for conductivity and receptivity. With a longer workshop we can change the habitual sense of pacing that is part of our social world. The discrimination and experimentation with vicissitudes of new movement possibilities open us to an ability to reset our nervous system and restore our resources for aliveness and presence.

“The antidote to trauma is to create new experiences in the body that contradict those of helplessness and collapse.” – Peter Levine

As we engage with the various breathing, sounding, and movement practices of Continuum we find our unique creativity emerging, leading us into innovative ways of tending our own needs. Continuum’s practical applications give one the ability to shift internal states quickly: from distraction to presence, from anxiety to curiosity and from an identification with a pain body to a pleasure body. The intentional use of will coupled with a cellular receptivity allows somatic intelligence to be your guide and companion.

“You do not need to be good
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.” – Mary Oliver
