The story of evolution is our story, our inheritance, our destiny. Out of the mysterious and intelligent fabric of existence, sentientlife takes form in the sea. A single cell metamorphosizes over eons into a myriad of possibilities— fish, whale, dinosaur, eagle, human. Our origins are elemental; our beginnings are our present and future. Held on the island of Ocracoke, one of the most remote islands in North Carolina’s Outer Banks, we are surrounded and supported by the elements of earth, sea and sky.. In this extraordinary natural setting, through the ancient body wisdom-gifts of movement, sound, breath and beholding, we will reenact our primordial unfolding from the sea to land. For five mornings, we rise before dawn and gather on the beach to participate in an experiential inquiry and creative exploration of discovery. Through ritual, we engage with the greater mystery, with the vastness and powers of our elemental nature. We plumb the depths of self that live beyond words and ignite the soul fire of being alive. Against the ocean’s expansive backdrop, we open to our essential nature and true origins.

At this moment we are living at thresholds of revelation and awareness that move us into realms both deeper into the earth and farther out into the heavens. Who we thought we were is not all that we are. As our reach extends, so do our questions about the complexity of existence, our origins and purpose. New understandings reshape our lives in unexpected ways, sometimes removing structures and beliefs that no longer accommodate our current experience. A reconfiguring emerges as part of our evolutionary process, reflecting who we are now.
For thousands of years we have studied the heavens, tracking the movements of stars and planets as a way to reach into the macrocosm and make meaning of our human experience. The constantly changing geometry of the night sky offers us a personal reflection, a way of placing ourselves in time/space and the ongoing evolution of cycles within cycles.
Astrology is an ancient and evolving art of mapping and interpreting the symbolic meaning and felt experience of the movements of heavenly bodies asthey interact with us individually and collectively. We are a living cosmic dance, expressing in and through the many dimensions of reality - learning, growing and evolving as one universal symphony. The twelve zodiac archetypes reflectthe complexity and multivalent nature of this choreography.
In this course, we will discover the universe within, mapping our own cosmic body. Each class will focus on a specific zodiac archetype, their personal expression, where they live in our body, how they inform who we are, how they move us, how they sing to our soul. Continuum is a self-directed somatic practice grounded in breath, felt sensation, attention, movement and sound/vibration. Through the wide aperture of this innovative approach to embodiment, fuller incarnation is made possible. The landscape of the body becomes the skyscape of the stars. Outer reflects inner and inner reflects outer. It is here where eternity meets time, where form meets emptiness, where earth and heaven are One.

Each class will contain content, experiential practice ( a dive, meditation ) and Q/A .

The zoom culture has given us a new sense of the potential to meet non-locally in order to create a strong container for our shared focus and intentions. Perhaps this time has encouraged us to develop a stronger sense of embodiment, motivation and well-being due to a more acute awareness of internal signals. Continuum’s inquiry into developing these pathways of interoception, sometimes called the 7th sense, reveals an ability to live into luminous states beyond objective, linear and cultural sensibilities. We discover our body as a portal to intimate experiences of ourselves as expressions of Gaia.
The practices of Continuum and Mindfulness are part of a body of teachings designed to experience the bodily form in a radically different way while addressing the inseparable mental formations as well. Although coming from different traditions, they intersect to bring forth a synergy that reveals more and more of the truth of existence as practice evolves.

Incarnation is a lifelong process of arriving, of weaving ourselves into wholeness. Many of us need support in finding our way through the vast scape of sensation and feeling, the dimension of the Soma ( body ). I mentor each person individually through their habits, patterns, blocks and challenges that can inhibit their capacity for aliveness and deeper embodiment. My work focuses on integrating the whole being, tending the internal organization and exploring where we are externally resourced and redirecting to a healthier expression of internal resourcing.
