Happy New Year
By Susannah and Ya'Acov
Dear All, we are loving coming back into work mode after a beautiful and intense family and friends time over the holiday season. Life simply keeps deepening and we are amazed and grateful for how our relationships with our families keep evolving. Part of this is the beauty of witnessing, supporting and being in dialogue with the younger generation as they grow into who they are becoming. Wow. There is hope for the world! more>

The Bigger Picture – THANK YOU!
By Susannah and Ya'Acov
As those of you who know us well will know, part of the roots of this practice is our willingness to engage with the bigger picture of life to which we all belong.

Forthcoming School of Movement Medicine Workshops
By Hanna
What a great way to end one year and cycle and to transition into and start a new year: dancing! Let yourself feel inspired by these wonderful offerings of workshop spaces to connect, to explore, to let go, expand, embody, dream, to just be, and to simply arrive in the space to be welcomed as you are – possibly by yourself, and certainly by the dancers you are with. more>
