|January 2, 2022, marks 34 years to the day and to the Sunday, that I moved to New York City from my life growing up in Iowa and attending college and living in Minnesota for a few years. I arrived with a few extra bags, a bit of saved cash, a place to stay for one month, no friends, and a huge dream to dance with life in a culturally diverse, dense environment where I could speak English.|
Each year I remember this anniversary and life changing move, and although I don’t have any special commemoration rituals, each year I count NYC as my home adds significance in the greater story of my life. Other than with my siblings and a few childhood friends, my experience with New York City is my longest living relationship.
I pause breathing in......feeling this relationship....
An expansive “WOW” flows through my mind,
chest lifting, opening,
eyes widening with appreciation
for all that living here gives me, takes away from me,
challenges me with,
and awakens me to.
Crossing the threshold into a new year sets the stage for a whole year of anniversaries. Many will be joyous occasions, others will evoke loss, grief, pain, and confusion. All anniversaries are opportunities for deep feelings to move, questions to be asked, and potential new meanings to be discovered.
Breathing in…feel your body just as it is now….
What anniversaries are you on the threshold of?
What feelings arise? What sensations awaken?
As you are present with this or any anniversary,
what do you need?
Breathing in………breathing out…………
Notice what you feel in your body now.
Moving Body Resources is here, January 2022. Practitioners and a few teachers continue to provide sessions and classes in the safest ways possible—online & in-person. As you move into this new year and all that it has in store, we are here to support all that you honor, all that you feel, and all that you need as new meanings of life awaken through your breathing-moving body in this new year.
With deep quiet reflection,
and blessings for a new year
filled with joyous remembrances, tender hearted care,
and miraculous discoveries,
Moving Body Resources

MOVING FROM WITHIN COLLECTIVE
a performance as therapy group
In this dance/movement therapy group, we will seek to unlock the healing power of movement and use the sacred space of performance as a medium through which to undertake our own, unique journey of transformation. Experience a therapeutic journey of the self through movement by harnessing the intuitive and innate story within while building a sense of community with fellow movers.
