This video,
The Secret of the Quaking Aspen, begins in Silence. Good to note so that you don't play with your volume controls and later get a blast of music. I chose silence because I wanted to give the viewer a chance to arrive at the scene. Slowing down and becoming part of the environment, needed a little bit of space and time.

My video project for Belonging with Ruth Chase

I am a movement artist, and, I made a Movement/Art/ Video piece to be shown in the exhibit, Belonging with artist Ruth Chase. The opening is scheduled for May 2nd at Summer Thyme's. My video will open here on this Blogger on that day too. Then there will be a Grand Opening on May 20th and my video will shown in Summer Thyme's from 2-5 pm. It will be a fun party like event open to the public. Until that time, I will be blogging almost daily about the making of this piece and other fun stuff about creating a movement/ art/ video set in my back woods. This Still Photography, taken from the video, is of  movement artist/dancer Juliet Lin.

I lead an Authentic Movement Class (on hold during the summer months) at Center of Movement Studio in downtown Grass Valley. We meet on Saturdays at 9:30 to 11 am.  These classes are introductory to this form which is a traditional Dance/Movement Therapy Form. I studied Authentic Movement for many years before getting my Graduate Degree in Dance/Movement Therapy from UCLA. The class, at Center of Movement, begins with a meditation and a somatic practice that gently moves us into a deep personal space. From here we explore Authentic Movement as it arises in the moment. I also incorporate writing, witnessing and sharing; all of these processes help one to enjoy their creative flow, find themselves more fully, and understand their connections with others.
