Description:  Sometimes referred to as “SHAPE,” there is no direct English translation for “KATACHI” which encompasses the aesthetic & philosophic essence of Design in Japanese. Join us in the SANCTUARY Of Moving Arts for a rare embodied journey into the very foundation of our evolution~as we explore the essence of shapes, colors and patterns that underly all of creation. We will be guided by profound lineages of cosmological physics (eg. Nassim Haramin, Brian Swimme), sacred art & philosopy (eg. Egyptian, Japanese Butoh, Nakota Sioux) as we engage in intermodal art cycles of drawing, collage, writing, music and movement. The serene vitality of our secluded forest sanctuary will support your adventure through inner realms of soulful sensation & imagination toward a conscious emergence in embodied artful harmony with our biosphere.

About Our Teachers: Maureen “Momo” Freehill, MFA is the co-founder and intuitive designer of Butopia and its off-grid, 11-sided sacred geometric SOMA~Sanctuary of Moving Arts where we will be meeting. She teaches in the dance lineage of butoh founders Kazuo & Yoshito Ohno. Her facilitation of embodied & intermodal art cycles incorporates principles essential to a day to day sustainable life of dancing freely & harmoiously with the true NATURE of human & non-human alike.
Ann Amberg, M.C.S. (Masters in Contemporary Spirituality) is a South Whidbey Island based artist, visionary and educator; a “cross pollinator” locally and globally who develops and manages integrative programs about sustainability, art, science, soul exploration and inner well being. Much of her current work is inspired by her work with evolutionary cosmologist and philosopher Dr. Brian Swimme; especially Ten Archetypal Shapes she developed based on the Powers of the Universe.  See
