When two separate evolved individuals

choose to DANCE 2gether,

 because they MUST,

ON/ IN

an

IMPROVISATIONAL

(the sync/parameters has been mutually created/ established)

collaboration WITH each other,

their DANCE is UNIQUELY theirs

 a beautiful occurrence

like an

 unrepeatable meteor!

X
X

Their

DANCE

IS

WHEEEEEEEE

A/LIVE

SYNERGISTIC

R/EVOLUTION

and

is

NEW LIFE!!

X

A

DANCE 

created by two people dedicated

to their

collaboration of discovery/ experimentation

IS

an unfolding improvisational metaphor

of their shared sacred connection

of

reciprocal / sensitive loving consideration

of each other.

X

X

X

 

Their

DANCE

is the DYNAMIC testimony of

AMAZING GRACE

GRACE ENERGY

FREEDOM

 letting go of control/ entrusting the other HONORING

 who they EACH are

and

surrendering to

DANCE’S  

incomparable/ unique/ shimmering/ miraculous

private silent language

of

flowING/ singING bodies in DUET

always moving forward!

THAT is the JOY/SURPRISE – LIVING LIFE’s BEAUTY!!

X

X

X

X

DANCING

is comprised of a series of movements
within

time moving forward,

movements that are combined
and
movements often repeated

where two people move in sync

with each other’s steps.

X

DANCING

is a coordinated effort

that looks easy and effortless,

but

that look is only possible

when  two people are

FAMILIAR/ respectful / PRESENT

WITH each other

A DANCE is NEVER one controlling the other!

PERIOD!

X

X

 

The

two people,

the

DANCERS,

are in

caring agreement/ dedicated

to be in

SYNC

with each other,

and

have practiced their

DANCE

 together 

to when their moving together,

slowly + suddenly,

becomes

second nature.

 

X
X
X

DANCING IS A DUET

with the same discipline/sensitivity to the other as a musician of

IMPROVISATIONAL MUSIC!

CONTROL v SURRENDER

by  MADISYN TAYLOR/ DailyOM
8 March 2017

X
The answer to control is practicing surrender.

X

Trying to maintain control in this life is a bit like trying to maintain control on a roller coaster. The ride has its own logic and is going to go its own way, regardless of how tightly you grip the bar. There is a thrill and a power in simply surrendering to the ride and fully feeling the ups and downs of it, letting the curves take you rather than fighting them. When you fight the ride, resisting what’s happening at every turn, your whole being becomes tense and anxiety is your close companion.

When you go with the ride, accepting what you cannot control, freedom and joy will inevitably arise.

X

As with so many seemingly simple things in life, it is not always easy to let go, even of the things we know we can’t control.

Most of us feel a great discomfort with the givens of this life, one of which is the fact that much of the time we have no control over what happens. Sometimes this awareness comes only when we have a stark encounter with this fact, and all our attempts to be in control are revealed to be unnecessary burdens. We can also cultivate this awareness in ourselves gently, by simply making surrender a daily practice. At the end of our meditation, we might bow, saying, “I surrender to this life.” This simple mantra can be repeated as necessary throughout the day, when we find ourselves metaphorically gripping the safety bar.

X

We can give in to our fear and anxiety, or we can surrender to this great mystery with courage.

When we see people on a roller coaster, we see that there are those with their faces tight with fear and then there are those that smile broadly, with their hands in the air, carried through the ride on a wave of freedom and joy. This powerful image reminds us that often the only control we have is choosing how we are going to respond to the ride.

GOLDBirdSONGS  Triptych                                         Catherine L. Johnson 2016

X

The GOLDBirdSONGS Triptych is a visual dance score to be transposed into sonics by a composer.
That is, the improvisational drawings are a platform
for a composer to create an improvisational/score for a string instrument 
– preferably cello.

The DEER/DEAR series

#1/ #2/#3/ #4/ #5/ #6/ #7/ #8/ #9
Mixed Media on Board
Each painting measures approximately 18″H x 12″W

2016 – 2017

X

ALL of my work is an encounter.
Visceral.
Intimate dialogues.
Calling out the  viewer’s capacity to listen/attend to nuance.
To experience the work one must have a real encounter with the offering.
My work is how a photograph of a beloved cannot compare
to the actual presence of a beloved.

X

My work denies the camera’s eye.

X

A viewer’s actual encounter with  my work is the dynamic LIVE performance.

There
is a

Native American parable

about an ELDER who says:

 “I feel as if I have

two wolves

fighting

in my heart.

X

One wolf is the

vengeful, angry one.

The other wolf is the

loving, compassionate one.”

X

X

 When asked which wolf

will win the fight in his heart,

the ELDER replies: 

“The one I feed.”

Life energy FLOWS through us like a swift stream
when there is nothing to obstruct it.

X

X

X

Though the channels
THROUGH which this energy FLOWS
are OPEN systems
and
influenced by factors
OUTSIDE
of our control,
one ultimately
chooses what impact
these  factors
will have in one’s lives.

X
X
X

It is up to one to identify
and
CLEAR blockages in the energy field
to ensure that FLOW is maintained.

X

X

X

Life energy FLOWS through each of  us
like a swift stream
when there is nothing to obstruct it.

X
X
X

Yet,
various forces such as
trauma;
the spiraling downbeat vibrations of others;
deceit and betrayal
and
unresolved grief of
past heart-breaks, irreversible losses and terrible disappointments
can and/or will
act like pebbles to stones to boulders
to mountains to earthquakes
that
impede/ BLOCK
the flow+ current.

X

X

X

If one allows/chooses

obstructions

to accumulate
without conscious clearing,
one’s life energy is thrown off its course
or
cataclysmically blocked entirely,
causing illness;
emotional/spiritual/psychological duress + distress
restlessness,
and
will,
ultimately,

STEAL

the vitality
of one’s

sacred/LUMINOUS life FORCE.

X
X
X

If one values the

sacred unrepeatable jewel

of one’s life,
  one will take the time to clear
these forces away
and
seize their power to impact
one’s lives.

X
X
X

When I practice:

RADICAL HOPE;

living my intrinsic values,
my ART of LIVING,
with honor and respect
for myself and others;
breath meditations – tending to my mind and body;

MOVING FORWARD

with FAITH + fearless improvisational creation/creativity;
RUN/PLAY with my selected + cherished DEARS /DEERS
and
fiercely shield myself
from negativity/bitterness/dishonesty/toxic energy,
I preserve my  

WILDERNESS/INTEGRITY/AUTHENTICITY

and

the JOYOUS flowing OCEANIC FIELD

of 

GRACE ENERGY’S

 LOVE/sacred LIGHT/BEAUTY

within
me.

X

X

X

I

WELCOME

call and response

relationships
that

HONOR + RESPECT

who I am
and
they have the capacity to state: 

“I SEE YOU!”

X

X

 Those same cherished beloveds

KNOW

that my response is:

“I SEE YOU!”

There

is a

Native American parable

about an ELDER who says:

“I feel as if I have

two wolves

fighting

in my heart.

X

One wolf is the

vengeful, angry one.

The other wolf is the

loving, compassionate one.”

X

When asked which wolf

will win the fight in his heart,

the ELDER replies:

“The one I feed!”

“…Let us step outside for a moment.
It is all there
Only we have been slow to arrive
At a way of seeing it.
Unless the gentle inherit the earth
There will be no earth.”
