Ancestral Table, Emilia Romagna, Italia (3.5 min.)

Dear <<First Name>>

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.

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

MOVING ART CARDS


Inspired by Prue Jeffries’ nature photographs from around our planet,
the Moving Arts Cards awareness practices are drawn from Elaine Colandrea’s years of teaching Continuum. The intention is to create an artful home practice
that extends a class/workshop experience.

The first edition is a set of 36 living art experience cards
wrapped in a silver organza bag that you can take with you anywhere.

Your Moving Art Cards order is a donation to support Watermark Arts and scholarship opportunities.

A Moving Inquiry: The Art of Personal Practice
by Beth Pettengill Riley and Priscilla Stanton Auchincloss

Is it possible to remain connected to the wholeness of embodied experience, as modern life becomes increasingly disembodied, fragmented and fast-moving?
Many people hunger for a meaningful movement practice, but struggle to find it.
The movement practice offered in this book is an inquiry into the
nature of human flourishing.
