Please join Zena Bibler, Gustine Fudickar and Carol McDowell for an International Contemplative Dance Practice Day Celebrating Barbara Dilley’s 80th birthday!
In Contemplative Dance Practice, we play with mindful presence, kinesthetic delight, and embodied composition in the act of meditation, moving alone, and dancing together.
CDP begins with sitting meditation, shifts into individual awareness practice, and then moves into an open space and dance time with others. The practice ends with a short sitting meditation and discussion time.
We come together to be curious, to ponder and be surprised as our thoughts, feelings, and actions arise, dwell, and fall away in a continuous present of stillness and movement. We will be dancing with an international community of CDP practitioners/dancers. This invitation is open to all.
“Not too much expectation of anything. Not trying to change anything. Being here with others, others who do this. It’s a worthy discipline.”
-Barbara Dilley, This Very Moment
