Belonging to the Earth, with Ancestral Table & Omega 2020

ElaineNews, Newsletters

A note from Elaine:

Watermark’s October message brings you Ancestral Table, a video transmission of embodied interconnection – the direct experience of nature and how vital it is to our sense of belonging in this world.

Ancestral Table came about in a spontaneous outdoor Continuum exploration in a unique landscape found in Emilia Romagna, Italia, called calanchi, the Italian equivalent of America’s badlands. There were three of us there, Mirco Dondi, Prue Jeffries, and I.

As we moved in relationship to the earth, we were transported to an elemental experience, our movements being shaped by the earth below and the air around us.

The moment deeply impressed on me the possibility and value of developing this sense of elemental belonging. What world could we create if we lived from such a relationship with the earth?

Mark your calendar for an opportunity of embodying the forces of nature yourself. Here is the first public announcement of our 2020 Omega workshop and retreat.

Somatic Movement Summit V
The Elemental Nature of Being
July 19 – 24, 2020

Like autumn leaves falling, I wish you a gentle landing on the earth,


PS – As always, I am indebted to the Watermark Arts Creative Team – Priscilla Auchincloss, Prue Jeffries, & Sandra Capellaro. With great gratitude to Ancestral Table collaborators –  video creator Prue Jeffries, poet Noelle Adamo, composer Morena Boschetto and Continuum mover Mirco Dondi.
