A LETTER FROM ELAINE
Dear <<First Name>>,

After many years in the practice of Continuum, I discovered in myself a longing, not just to make art, but to realize myself and others as living art. It is the artless, unstudied quality of the natural world in moment-by-moment human experience that has been revealed to me in the movement of Continuum. 

Now, writing to you while teaching and filming in southern Italy, I am surrounded by a landscape that also calls me to this deepest longing. Perhaps this stirs something in you, too. If so, I invite you to partake of three new offerings from Watermark Arts, as follows:
  • Take inspiration from musician Cory Blake in the latest addition to our video series on “Continuum & Creativity”.
  • Feast your eyes on two new, online galleries with photographer Tuan Phan and dancer Rebecca Lawson. Scroll down for a preview.
  • Come to "Moving Body", a weekend workshop at Shantigar this October, and awaken your innate artistry. See below for dates, brief description and link to more info. 
With delight in living art, 

Elaine

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.


I also am able to drop down deeper into the emotional content that may be giving impetus to the dance. Continuum has absolutely helped my physicality to be nourished and stay resilient for dancing.

Awaken the deep ocean of intelligence and creativity within
at Shantigar, October 5-7th, 2018.


To make art always means going to the edge of your comfort zone, but Continuum makes that experience exhilarating, not intimidating. A Continuum moving body allows you to skillfully ride the creative edge of not knowing.

Join Elaine Colandrea, Megan Bathory-Peeler & Jean-Claude van Itallie
for a weekend, and discover how Continuum can become the foundation to support your most vibrant artistic expression. Offered at Shantigar, a retreat center designed to nurture body, soul and creativity, set in the pristine woodlands of
northern Massachusetts. No prior experience required.
