Writing Yourselfwith Scott Stabile
Saturday, March 24 @ 11:00am - 4:30pm
A Workshop of Self-Discovery and Personal Empowerment
Open, honest writing changes lives, especially the life of the writer. Many studies have confirmed what those who keep a journal already know: a consistent writing practice can improve our physical, mental and emotional health.
Writing clarifies. Writing empowers. Writing heals.
In this workshop, author Scott Stabile will guide you through writing exercises designed to help you unlock deeper truths about yourself, so that you can approach your life with a clearer and more expansive understanding of who you are and what you need in order to live a freer, more fully realized life. Whether you write every day, or have never used writing as a tool for personal growth, you will benefit from this opportunity to connect deeply with your inner voice. The focus here is not on grammar or technique, but on honest and brave internal exploration, and the belief that writing of this nature can lead to self-discovery and personal empowerment.
Along with the targeted writing exercises, Scott will lead class discussion and share the unfiltered, compassionate insights to which his many readers and listeners have become accustomed.
Scott’s workshops are always intimate, with direct access to Scott. You’ll have ample opportunity to ask questions, share your experiences, and connect with other open-hearted, courageous souls.
Absolutely no writing experience necessary to benefit from the insights you’ll discover in this workshop.
Please bring a journal or notebook, and above all, a willingness to be honest with yourself.
Here’s what past attendees had to say about Scott’s workshops:
“I had no idea of the level of connection, insight and action that would be inspired by one afternoon workshop with Scott. Through love, candid conversation and creative exercises, I emerged ready to take on my fears and excited to make progress toward my dreams while gaining a new-found support network in the wonderful people I met during the workshop.” – Kristin H.
“I can’t say enough good things about Scott’s workshop. He is such a warm and loving presence and it is felt the moment you enter the room. I felt safe and supported by not only Scott but the participants. I learned such valuable tools and techniques that afternoon. I have already put in to practice what I learned and will continue to do so for many years to come. Highly recommended.” – Danelle S.
“If Scott comes to your town, GO to his workshop. Drop everything and GO. You will walk away feeling more aware of yourself, and most likely more at peace with yourself. I sure did. The writing exercises are exceptional, but there’s something about Scott specifically that blew me away. Such wisdom and compassion. And he’s really funny too. Like I said, JUST GO. You will be so grateful you did.” – Jenny K.

An incubator for exploring deeper connection through co-created movement
Join us for monthly nights of movement education, dancing, and exceptional music in this nurturing connective space. While the common language shares the framework of traditional social dance, creative expression, authentic connection and play take precedence over form! We believe stronger communities form where life is celebrated in music and dance with one another and see dance as a language with the power to bridge interpersonal and cultural divisions.
Our intention is to provide:
*A welcoming, inclusive environment that feels safe and judgment-free
*A gateway into the partner dance world and creative expression
*A nexus for community and authentic connection
Each event includes an ALL LEVELS class that supports up-leveling dance connection and skills, and three hours of dancing, with occasional cutting-edge LIVE musical acts.

THE EMBODIED LIFE™with Russell Delman
Saturday, May 19 @ 10:00am - 5:00pm
Sunday, May 20, 2018
10:00am – 5:00pm
Strength to Love: Embodying Gratitude and Perseverance in Challenging Times
These are extraordinarily challenging and fertile times. Challenging because of the environmental, social and political battles being fought within and around us and fertile because of the environmental, social and political battles being fought within and around us.
While there are many human virtues/qualities that can be helpful for navigating our lives, I experience two that are particularly accessible, empowering and learnable. The first I call “Ever-Present Gratitude” and the second, “Courageous Perseverance”.
Large view – the mission of humanity is to learn how to Love. By Love, I do not mean something romantic. I am referring to a warm-hearted and protective caring for all of life. As you no doubt already know this takes great willingness, openness and strength. When this kind of Love – usually natural from parents toward infants – can become generalized toward all of life, we embody our deepest humanity. When, through awareness, we overcome the fear and confusion that often dominates our brains, this lovingness emerges as our natural and dominant state.
In this seminar, we will explore and experience the four primary doorways to gratitude. When these neural networks are strengthened, we can begin to uncover “Ever-Present Gratitude”. By “ever-present”, I do not mean that we are grateful 24/7. Rather, that when gratitude is not spontaneously available, we discover that it is not far away. Through perceptual/mental shifting, we can learn to invite its presence.
To be authentically caring beings, we need great inner strength, for the path is hard and the road rocky. We all have wounds and experiences that create and trigger our defensiveness. Often we might feel like giving up and withdrawing into our narrow comfort zone. In our closest relationships, we might experience moments of great antipathy, including anger and even hatred! “Courageous Perseverance” is a grounded, centered, energized, embodied state in which we find the capacity to pick ourselves up and move forward. It also includes our willingness to work through challenging situations.
Both “Ever-Present Gratitude” and “Courageous Perseverance” are learnable skills. I am not suggesting that this is simple or instantaneous. I am saying that ordinary people like you and me can grow these qualities.
As always in Embodied Life seminars, our methodology will include:
– Guided meditations,
– Feldenkrais movement lessons,
– Empowering, vertical movement practices,
-Various writing and interactive practices,
– Group dialogues.
I hope you can join these days of joyful and transformative learning,
