In your gaze. Refuge is this
Familiar place. Friend.

“More than something I teach or practice, Continuum has expanded my perception of the world, both internal or external. Continuum is present in every moment of my life. What lies beneath the creations are sensorial experiments, information that rises from the depths of my tissues and the expression of somatic experiences.”
– Lali Jurowsky

“My interests lie not in talking about Continuum but in finding ways to express as honestly and simply as I can what touched me most about it as a transformative and creative process.” ~ Hanna Heiting

Welcoming artist Raine Brown

“I experience Continuum as a form of inquiry, an invitation in and through what I may perceive as known to the unknown. I often journey to a formless space, the ground of all emergence, from which writing may arise as expression.”

Watermark Arts welcomes dancer Rebecca Lawson

ElaineWelcoming New Artists


Watermark Arts is happy to welcome dancer Rebecca Lawson.

“The practice of Continuum has helped me to deeply open my capacity to listen to what is calling to be expressed. By diving into the endless unfolding and the ongoing discovery of our fluid nature, the creative process of movement is amplified. In a sense, I am being choreographed instead of doing the choreography.” – Rebecca Lawson

ElaineWelcoming New Artists

Beth Pettengill Riley, Watermark Arts Education Advisor, has broken ground in re-visioning physical education to encompass the felt sense of lived human experience. Beth teaches Continuum and is also an accomplished poet; you can drink in some of her poetry on our website. In 2017 she co-taught, with Watermark Arts Associate Director Priscilla Auchincloss, the online Continuum course A Moving Inquiry: The Art of Personal Practice, now being made into a workbook (stay tuned – an excerpt will be available to Omega participants,
with pre-order open to all soon).

Brilliant blue sky, penetrated by moving monarchs-
Two dancing mid-air around my head
Admitting, in their delicate beauty,
That celebratory grace IS the pulse of the planet.

~ excerpt, “The Five O’Clock Creek”, by Beth Pettengill Riley
