There's a HUGE need for information about the transformative power of conscious dance, freestyle movement, somatic + body intelligence. BIG thanks to you Mark for creating a leading edge forum for this kind of essential + emerging conversation and MOVEMENT!
Fascinating how many flavors + titles have emerged in this field! The ability to listen to perspectives + experience of a wide range of facilitators + creators can assist us all to experience the true VALUE that is here for everyBODY.
One suggestion, as someone rooted in another cultural location's freestyle movement + performing art (Japanese Butoh) I would love to see more cultural diversity in the interviews + leadership here.
"I love to see people in their pleasure + their joy." ~Fred Sugerman
"Dance freely like dust at play in the Universe." ~ Kazuo Ohno
Fred Sugarman of Medicine Dance
Terrific freewheeling and fun discussion between two "dance guys" that offered a perspective from the personal to the global on the actual potential that dance medicine/conscious dance has for contributing significantly to a planetary healing and paradigm shift.
The work of the body and soul reflected on this lovely podcasts. For the people who are interested in the embodiment of our lives
