"SoulMotion," writes Vinn Arjuna, "is a movement ministry, a dance practice, and a philosophy of living that supports our unconditional acceptance of 'what is', it is a fearless exploration outside the box of the familiar sleep-inducing trance we sometimes find ourselves dancing to. We use the dance as metaphor for living a creative, expressive, and unified life of integrity, immensity, and intensity."

PAUSE PRESENCE with Vinn Arjuna Marti


Stop doing! Just stand there! Now, that is my kind of wisdom teaching.

From an early age I have known the great benefits attached to just loafing even as I live in a culture that rewards activity and end results and productivity.

Busy has become the buzzword for being and I am exhausting my self trying and trying harder to get something done.

Well there is an aspect of our conscious dance practice, Soul Motion, that salutes pausing in activity, doing nothing, and having an unattached observance to everything moving as thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations.

In Pause Presence I cultivate a stance that is graceful while empowering confidence and I learn about growing in stature as I dissolve toward the grounding of feet. It’s an inside job and one especially tuned to the contemplative power of stillness in motion.

Come on over and enliven your dance, both the classroom and the everyday one. Occupy stillness over fixity, presence over personality, pausing over busyness.
