Monthly Newsletter

January 2019
Ending an old year and starting a new one is a collective way of marking time.  Something about the duration of time and other cycles seems important to us humans and we track them in all kinds of ways.  Cycles of minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, decades, centuries, millenniums.  Nature cycles--sunrise-sunset, ocean waves, seasons.  Body function cycles—heart beats, nervous system (waking – sleeping, action – rest), breathing, digestion, fertility, gestation, birth, death.  Cycles of life and development—infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, elderhood. 
A significant cycle is upon us this year, as we mark 20 years since the beginning of Moving Body Resources.  For those who have been around since we began, you may remember us as Mary Abrams Movement Resources from 1999-2006.  When we moved to West 27th Street (13 years ago already!), I realized the vision and scope of what the business and community had become, needed a more expansive and universal name.  That’s when Moving Body Resources rose to the cause. 
Celebrating 20 years of moving, breathing, learning, creating, healing, loving, and so much more has been a true honor and a dream come true beyond anything I could have imagined.  We made it through our infancy and childhood, and are now moving through the tail-tip end of our adolescence.  We have had our feast years and lean years, made our mistakes, developed through growing pains, and somehow by the grace of everyone who has come here and the world around us, we are still thriving.  My dream continues that as we move into our 3rd decade, these will become Moving Body Resources’s golden years of adulthood, dancing in community with all who choose to move, breathe, learn, work, discover, heal, and love among us.   
Please be in touch, and come over to W. 27th Street for a class, workshop, private session, or cup of tea in the lobby.  We'd love to have your very special, one of a kind, moving body celebrating a new year and a new decade with us.
And in case you need some inspiration or practical information, please read below for January and new year highlights.  As always our website has even more details, and we're always happy to hear from you via phone or email. 
With great cheer,
brilliant appreciation, and hope
for a thriving new year & decade together,
Mary Abrams &

Moving Body Healing
Taught by Mary Abrams
Mondays Jan 7, Feb 4, Mar 4
6 - 8PM
This class explores the questions, “What is healing? Who is the healer? Who is healing? Can healing occur if nothing needs fixing? Can healing occur if no one has special powers? Or if everyone has special powers?
During these sessions all participants will be invited to explore themselves moving, sounding, breathing, and being in the space as healers, as being healed, and in endless creative roles appearing and disappearing for no rational reason. Participants will be invited to bring their special, sacred, and mundane objects to heal with, along with fabrics, singing bowls, shakers, candles, water, and all other items in our healing space. Together we will discover the mysteries and meanings of healing.

This class is inspired by Mary’s lifelong creative explorations in the mystery of being and ongoing Somatic Movement practice.
$30/single class
$130/ 5 class series
