Early Registration discount by Sunday April 8

Location: SOMA on Butopia Land in Freeland, WA

Description: Join us in the SANCTUARY Of Moving Arts for a rare guided somatic meditation within the foundation of our flesh~the fluid body & breath. Influenced for over 30 years by the deeply embodied work of Emile Conrad and Continuum {see: http://youtu.be/Kt89pcfrvns };……..Martha Trolin will tenderly facilitate our somatic journey.

This movement dive at Butopia will utilize breath, sound and subtle movements to inspire personal exploration. These three primary body perturbations, coupled with keen curiosity, can act as a pebble tossed into a pond, where information takes the form of deepening and expanding ripples in the water.

Of most interest to Martha these days is are re-awakening peripheral vision, enlivening the back body and swimming into our limbless viscera fish-body. Always of deepest importance to Martha is awakening through the senses to our birthright of resonant belonging. Martha, who hails from the dry lands of New Mexico and the watery world of Port Townsend is one of the best guides I have ever experienced through the realms of your unseen inner biosphere.

About Our Teacher: Martha Trolin began her life-long interest in movement when at 10 months she somehow managed to break her leg and learn to walk in a waist-high cast. At 12, and 5’8″, her mother sent her to “dancing classes” so she might, at least, be graceful as she towered over her class mates and 6th grade male teacher. In 1975 she happened on Emily Conrad’s Continuum Movement Meditation Studio and her body- as-temple, journey home, began. Emily Conrad, Susan Harper, Hubert Godard, water, catastrophe (both small & large), boredom (both large & small) surrender and clouds have been her greatest teachers. Martha’s adventures in movement are still in full swing to this day, a number of decades hence.

Details: Please dress in layers for cool & warm, eat beforehand and bring snacks for short personal nibble breaks….we will remain deep in the “zone” for most of these precious 5 hours.
