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.
Soul Motion: The Way of the Moving Mystic is an advanced-level program open to ALL who have completed Soul Motion: Foundations. Next Series begins: April 18-22, 2018; October 17-21, 2018 & February 6-10, 2019
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.
