my body hears many voices, not one voice.
--Deborah Hay


Community gives me a place where I am connected to many kindred yet diverse spirits. I thrive here. It is essential to me that I participate and contribute.

My interest in movement-centered symposiums began in 2001 when I received an invitation to participate in Art Human Nature, an international gathering of movement artists.

Symposiums provide lively environments where growth and exchange happens in a communal setting.  I have co-facilitated symposiums exploring the following themes:  Anger, Fear, Care, Revelation and Power. Each participant creates and facilitates a movement score based on the theme. As long as the communal energy is present more symposiums will follow. Click here for Revelation score
