Dancing Buddhas, a virtual dance project conceived and designed by Shelley exploring the five phases of awakening.
Sitting with All Life
The Stance Coming to Life
The Beginner Curiously Exploring
All Together Caring
Travel the phases with this sensory meditation, using inner sight, sound, smell, taste, feeling, and intuition in creative play. Tune into any message, intuition, or gift at the end of the exercise, no matter how subtle. Take note of what you received or even write it down. This deepens connection to your inner wisdom.
Dancing Buddhas Project ~ each phase Carlos Fittante from NYC and Shelley from San Francisco would create a short improvisation, one spontaneous movement based solely on the title. Shelley then edited a short video vignette of each phase. The two videos show the different environments and expressions of the same theme.

The Full Journey From the East Coast
There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how it compares with other expressions, or even believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open.
