Contemplative Dance Practice
facilitated by Zavé Martohardjono & Chelsea Gregory
Wednesdays | 10am – 12pm | April 24 – June 26
Contemplative Dance Practice is a three part session formally divided between seated meditation, personal attunement (warmup), and improvised movement in a group. CDP was developed at Naropa University by Barbara Dilley, a dance artist and teacher who has been practicing and studying meditation in the Shambhala tradition of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche for more than 30 years. Described by Dilley as “a meditator’s dance hall or a dancers’ meditation hall,” this practice provides opportunities to sensitize our awareness of ourselves as a system, and to observe how that system interacts with, affects, and is affected by the systems we move through.
