SPIRIT WEAVES: RITES OF BELONGING RETREAT
MICHAEL MOLIN-SKELTON AND SUSAN HARPER
NOVEMBER 11-16, 2012 - ESALEN, BIG SUR, CA

The world offers itself to your imagination, calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting--over and over announcing your place in the family of things. –Mary Oliver

We are belonging to the beauty that lives in the natural world - reminding us - ‘our nature is nature.’
Rites of Belonging is a call to bring forth our unique offering: our own way of being in this world. In this retreat we explore intimacy and the relationalcapacity of the heart to refine the compass of our own genuine longing and belonging.

WHAT WE WILL DO?
Using the awakening energy of dancing through the 5 Rhythms®, Soul Motion™, we will move with the grace of our belonging and the struggles of our exclusion. Through the organismic movements and sounding in the inquiry style of Continuum Montage we will explore the intelligent dynamics of the elements—water, air, fire, earth, and space—in our bodies; deepening our inherent connection to our wild breathing planetary body.

Through movement and ritual, we will explore the meaning of how and where we belong in ourselves and our lives, and the places we feel exiled from ourselves and others. We will actively step into the participation required to belong, responding to the call that stirs a deep inner longing to fall into the place we call home. We will experience the possibility of resting through our bodies and listening to the silences within; to trust and surrender as gravity repeatedly tells us ‘I have a place for you: it is called here.’

MiCHAEL MOLIN-SKELTON- reaches through dance rather than teaches to dance. “Dance is not something I do, it’s simply who I am.” He creates Spirit Weaves events with his beloved wife, Anneli Molin-Skelton in Los Angeles and internationally.

SUSAN HARPER has been teaching and contributing to Continuum since 1975.
She is the developer of Em’oceans and Sensations Trainings andwith Hubert Godard co-developed Portals of Perceptions. This work is also inspired by
Michael Meade, Reggie Ray, David Whyte, John O'Donohue and
Chris Price -Gestalt Awareness Practice
