"Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things, they are transformed." ~Thich Nhat Hanh
"Regardless of how we get there, either through meditation or more directly by paying attention to novelty and questioning assumptions, to be mindful is to be in the present, noticing all the wonders that we didn't realize were right in front of us." ~ Ellen J. Langer
I teach many different types of classes in a variety of venues: technique classes at dance and theatre venues, college classes about the arts, as well as creativity workshops and Feldenkrais movement classes at The Center for Mindful Living. From the outside, this varied curriculum might seem only loosely related but from my perspective these courses all share an important common thread. In all cases, I aim to help students see themselves as more creative by helping them learn to look and listen and sense and feel with greater awareness.
