What is Continuum?
Continuum is a unique and innovative field of movement education, based on the understanding that we are fundamentally fluid organisms. All life, including the human body, has been shaped by water. The primary focus of Continuum is to enliven, join with, and augment the creative potential of the fluids that are forming, informing, and moving within us. It offers the opportunity to explore the body as an unfolding process of life.
“It is through the sensations of the body that we are delivered to the experience of life”
What distinguishes Continuum from other somatic inquiries is its reach into multidimensional realms of thought and experience through the in-depth exploration of the primary movement motifs of our biology. It is a synthesis of a scientific, physical and metaphysical exploration. Ultimately, Continuum is a philosophical inquiry led by a search for meaning about the human condition and mystery.
The following questions are posed not only with the mind but with the body:
What is it to be a human being?
What unites us as a human species that is deeper than culture?
How is humankind connected to the larger universe?
The body becomes the material and ground of exploration through which the questioning, the experimentation and the discovery of meaning take place.
