Facilitation: Teaching & Transmission

somatic citations

1-on-1 embodiment sessions

To schedule your first (free) session, click here.


the basics: Each session lasts 45 minutes, in person or via video call, is one-on-one: just you and me and everything that came before us and that is active in between. Somatic Citations is open to whoever feels called to observe, honor, and experience your own visceral doings… I will come prepared to transmit salient movement practices, thought recipes, and body-based scores for you to tune in, resource, and follow curiosity.

the quality of attention: The tone of the session is somewhere between witchy cauldron where savoir-faire and homemade ginger tea are brewing, and a shoreline that shapeshifts into the horizon and invites you to dive in. It is an embodiment/being laboratory that you can receive, guide, or let wash over you like a steam bath after joining the Polar Bear club in winter. Arrive as you are.

Consider incorporating a session into your warm up, routine, or physical practice every ~2 weeks. Like a nourishing face mask, or a day of fasting.

a note on the intersection that I as facilitator am offering: I’ve been an embodied-knower-through-dance since I was very small; training in somatic practices (some systems that have been codified to sense / make sense starting from the perspective of the thinking body), facilitation, & hands on touch modalities for the last decade; and researching the resource-full, relational power of rehearsal ecologies for the last several cycles around the sun. I acknowledge and am in constant dialogue with many incredible artists and embodied knowers, many of whom are….you! I am currently based in the Occitanie region of France + nomadically across what’s presently called the United States or Turtle Island.

the invitation: All embodied awarenesses, histories, cosmologies of practice, communication styles, and comfort levels with movement are invited. Be welcome.

scores for the senses

short audio transmissions available for download.

I compose* & share these scores (a combination of soundscape & spoken text) for the senses as a bridge between my rehearsal process and yours; a portal to connect inside this pandemic time warp; an invitation to sense your embodiedness; a morning meditation…

This series is committed to facilitating a creative, restorative attention: consider these scores as a daily-ritual-nutritional-medicinal-as-needed warm up for the senses.
