A Book is Born!

ElaineNews, Newsletters

Two years ago, in preparation for our annual Continuum workshop at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY, we shared with you a series of online exhibits of art, poetry and somatic explorations inspired by the elements: Air, Earth, Fire and Water. When the pandemic cancelled our plans to gather at Omega, our creative energy was redirected to create a movement guide expanding on the elemental exhibits. 

We are now pleased to announce the publication of our book, The Elemental Body: A Movement Guide to Kinship with Ourselves and the Natural WorldThe pages of which are filled with Continuum explorations from authors Elaine Colandrea and Rori Smith and elemental art and poetry from Watermark artists. This project is a multimedia endeavor. The book is accompanied by a library of short films to inspire your relationship with the elements and enrich your practice. 

Our first book signing will be held during our much anticipated return to Omega for the weeklong retreat “Elemental Movement for Creative Wellbeing,” June 26 – July 1, 2022.

With great excitement,
