SOUL MOTION: THE WAY OF THE MOVING MYSTIC - Michael Molin-Skelton and Aletia A. Alvarez

  • Madrona MindBody Institute 200 Battery Way Port Townsend, WA, 98368 United States (map)

Mysticism is neither a faith nor a belief, nor is it a principle or a dogma. A mystic is born; being a mystic means having a certain temperament, a certain outlook on life. It is for this reason that many are confused by the word mystic, because mysticism cannot be explained in plain words.

Contact Aletia Alvarez with questions.

Pre-requisite:  Soul Motion: Foundations

Soul Motion: The Way of the Moving Mystic is an advanced-level program open to ALL who have completed Soul Motion: Foundations.

Led by Faculty of the Soul Motion School.  This first offering is led by Michael Molin-Skelton and Aletia A. Alvarez

As somatic practitioners we continue to unfold and learn within the tradition of conscious dance as a metaphor for understanding the alchemy of our everyday lives.

Mysticism is “a constellation of distinctive practices, discourses, texts, institutions, traditions, and experiences aimed at human transformation, variously defined in different traditions.”  Wikipedia

Our path is to continue to open and receive the wisdom of body vision and knowledge.  This program takes the next step in receiving and recovering the somatic resources available to us through movement, ritual, poetry, nature, journaling, prayer, art, and the dynamics of tending space.

Tuition includes online calls with the group between each series.

Soul Motion:  The Way of the Moving Mystic is a three-part series.  To be completed together.

Visionaries simply imagine what does not yet exist. We glimpse into a possible future. Soul Motion™ provides a vehicle for gazing toward each moment as movement. Our practice is unrehearsed and unknown, while being approachable and accessible.
