2023 Anniversary Year Celebrations

Happy New Year,

2023 marks a significant anniversary for me.

Thirty years ago, I met Continuum and fell completely in love.

I knew immediately that I would follow its call – exploring the art and science of being a conscious, moving body. For these past three decades – a large part of my adult life – I have been faithful to Continuum. I have been rewarded with a growing ability to meet the unexpected and the unknown, with healing revelations and more ease in my entire being.

I am beholden to Judi Bachrach, who introduced me to Continuum in 1993. She captured my attention by describing Continuum as a way “to bypass your defenses and connect with your true self.” My study continued with visionary Continuum founder Emilie Conrad, who challenged me to release what stood in my way, to become free to carry Continuum into the world. Susan Harper provided heartfelt support and was an inspiring model on my journey to becoming a Continuum teacher.

My colleagues in the Continuum teaching community are my chosen family. Linda Rabin has been my Continuum soul mate in a decades-long pedagogical dialogue that keeps us engaged and growing. I have been blessed for these many years with extraordinary students, who endlessly inspire me and whose perspectives broaden my understanding of human experience.

2023 will be full of events born of my lifelong abiding passion: bringing people together to experience the transformative capacity of the body. Read on for an overview of the year to come.

Please join me in celebrating nothing less than the unfolding, ongoing miracle of life in vibrant expression.

Wishing you the joy of connection in 2023 – with self, others and nature,

As always, I owe endless gratitude to the multi-talented Watermark Arts Creative Team.
