A LETTER FROM ELAINE

Dear <<First Name>>,

Community gatherings are heartening to all involved. I continue to be awed at their capacity to revive, nourish and lift the spirit. A touch of ceremony, a dose of beauty, more than a little laughter...in the end, what else do we have but our relationships and the moments that touch us? 

It is my privilege to be, with Watermark Arts, at the center of preparing two such gatherings coming up in the very near future:

First, the Somatic Movement Summit, starting on Sunday, July 1, at the Omega Institute, brings together a circle of somatic explorers. Poet and Continuum teacher Bobbie Ellis captures the essence of the workshop in the following lines of her poem, "Vibrant Well of the Lotus":

"Perhaps we can drop down and for once rest long enough
to renew our dear selves.
Can we begin to respond with fluid wisdom?" 

 
Join us for an exceptional opportunity for extended learning, communing and moving. Registration is open

Second, Watermark Arts presents an Interdependence Day Performance, on Wednesday, July 4, 8 p.m., in Omega's Main Hall. The performance offers the debut of My Body of Water, a dance work for which poet Noelle Adamo provides the score. Here is an excerpt:
 
I find my way into the mud
of springtime.
I kiss the bones
of earth.
I am fragrant and alive
in the weight
that shapes me.
Here in darkness I grow,
in the tangled
and complicated roots
of all life.

The full, one-hour program features a rare selection of exquisite, somatic-inspired dance, poetry, music and art. Open to everyone with free admission. If you are attending from off campus, please allow time for parking and getting to Main Hall. Come early to enjoy the gardens, explore the bookshop, and/or have dinner. 

Looking forward to sharing these gatherings with you,
Elaine
