InStill Movement

This is an invitation to do something radical; it is an invitation to a moving meditation with a kinesthetic mantra.

In a culture trained to move continuously at warp speed, this is an invitation to explore the emergence of movement from stillness.

This invitation is worth accepting, because as those who frequent InStill Movement classes will tell you, amazing things happen when using our attention to move in stillness as a meditation.
