Emilie Conrad teaches that all fluids, no matter what their purported purpose or categories, are basically ONE RESONANT ELEMENT. This one element resonates with all fluids, whether in the Galaxy, Earth or in our bodies, functioning as a nutritional umbilical cord that supplies us with the pulsing undulations of life supporting vibrancy.

A Continuum workshop is an invitation to dive into the play of life. As we enter our own pool of existence, spiralling within our cells, we encounter a pulsating timeless presence. Stirring through our tissues is an undulating memory of all species – millions of years spent embracing a life stream that circulates through planet Earth and is now alive within each of us as we become baptized by this magnificent initiation.

All behavior is a result of context, whether in cells, relationships or countries. We learn from within our own cells how life happens. We learn that when there is less fear and resistance, the world within and without will transmit new life to what may have become withered and alienated.

Vocal sounds are used to stir the magnificent fluid that resides within our tissues. When awakened, the primary choreographer of our bio-sphere begins its remarkable dance as our bodies become glistening examples of timeless shifts.

We learn that our spines are our “cosmic antennae” as we adventure through the miracle of undulating vertebral play. Our heads become chambers of discovery, our throats the song of trees and wind, while our hands and feet reflect the nuanced array of unburdened movements, freeing us to move among the many streams of what it means to be alive.

Like awakening from a deep sleep, we comprehend that our systems were designed to continue interactions with the environment far beyond time and space. Like trees growing its roots further into the earth with branches that spread eagerly toward the sky, we have the same ability and purpose. It is time for us to claim our birthright and its future.
