Notes About This Event


On Valentine's Day, we rise up in conjunction with 1 Billion Rising and Groundswell in music, poetry, dance and action to declare that #RevolutionaryLove is the call of our times.

We declare our love for all who are in harm’s way.

We declare love for our opponents.

We declare love for ourselves. We will protect our capacity for joy. We will nurture our bodies and spirits; we will rise and dance. We will honor our mothers and ancestors whose bodies, breath, and blood call us to a life of courage. In their names, we choose to see this darkness not as the darkness of the tomb – but of the womb. We will breathe and push through the pain of this era to birth a new future.

You're invited to join Nia black belt, physical therapist and embodied prayer leader Rachael Resch in the Joy of Movement Movement!

Rock out to music from Shawn Zevit, Mavis Staples, One Billion Rising, Michael Beckwith, and more!

RED BROCADE
by Naomi Shihab Nye

 

The Arabs used to say,
When a stranger appears at your door,
feed him for three days
before asking who he is,
where he’s come from,
where he’s headed.
That way, he’ll have strength
enough to answer.
 

Or, by then you’ll be
such good friends
you don’t care.
 

Let’s go back to that.
Rice? Pine nuts?
Here, take the red brocade pillow.
My child will serve water
to your horse.
 

No, I was not busy when you came!
I was not preparing to be busy.
That’s the armor everyone put on
to pretend they had a purpose
in the world.
 

I refuse to be claimed.
Your plate is waiting.
We will snip fresh mint
into your tea.

Notes About This Event

Just as spring is the time of year for sprouting upwards, late summer begins the time of returning to our roots.  The Hebraic mystical tradition teaches that the human body is the Tree of Life - rooted in Heaven and Earth, flowering in Heaven and Earth.

Moving through Lammas toward Autumn Equinoxand Rosh Hashanah, we reaffirm the spiritual rootedness of the human body in the tabernacle of the Earth. 

Join us for 5 weeks of Nia classes, from Tisha B'Av to Rosh Hashana, exploring how each root, limb and trunk of the Tree of Life is nested within your holy body.  Each day we focus on a specific fruit of the Kabbalah Tree of Life.  Learn how to plant, grow, harvest and store the seeds of sovereignty, creativity, adornment, eternity, beauty, strength and lovingkindness - your body's way - to renew all worlds.

All faith paths and those of no specific faith path are welcome to this practice of deep ecumenism.

APRIL 26  to JUNE 11, 2016

Notes About This Event

The Spring is the time of year for sprouting upwards - as new seedlings or as old growth continuing our journey anew.  The Hebraic mystical tradition understands that the human body herself, the human body himself, is the Tree of Life - the one who is rooted in both Heaven and Earth simultaneously.  "Omer" refers to the fruits on the Tree of Life - us, our bodies, our lives, the food we eat, and all beings.

Join us for 49 days of Nia classes exploring how each part of the Tree of Life is nested within the body, and the body is nested within the Tree of Life.  Each day's focus is a jewel ("sephirah" in Hebrew) on the multidimesional Tree of Life that experssesitself through the four-dimensional human body.


For example, we'll explore Strength of Lovingkindess (Gevurah Sheb'Chesed), Beauty within Strength (Tiferet Sheb'Gevurah), Queenship of the Heart (Malkhut Sheb'Tiferet), Center of All Centers (Yod Sheb'Yod), and more.

Learn how your personal anatomy is a bridge to Earth's lunar calendar and to the sacred anatomy of the Universe.  Experience the indwelling spirit of the body.  Have fun your body's way.

You entered the form you are in
in order to give a holy message.
If that seems too direct, I'll put it another way:
An envoy from the inconceivable 
hides within each one of us.
And then the question becomes,
What is it that you need to say to us and do?


- Hafiz

About Nia

What is Nia?

Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance arts and healing arts. It empowers people of all shapes and sizes by connecting the body, mind, emotions and spirit. Classes are taken barefoot to soul-stirring music in more than 45 countries. Trainings are designed for those seeking personal enrichment and professional development. Every experience can be adapted to individual needs and abilities. Step into your own joyful journey with Nia, and positively shape the way you feel, look, think and live.

How does Nia work?

Nia draws from Tai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido, jazz dance, modern dance, Duncan dance, yoga, Alexander Technique and Teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais. Every class offers a unique combination of 52 moves that correspond with the main areas of the body: the base, the core and the upper extremities. Stiff beginners and highly fit athletes alike can adapt Nia to meet their needs by choosing from three intensity levels. Consecutive trainings collectively explore 52 principles for personal enrichment and professional development. Read testimonials from people of all ages, backgrounds and locations.

Why was Nia created?

Nia’s purpose is to grow a worldwide community of healthy people who are empowered to do great things. We believe every person can discover, explore, unleash and enhance their individual potential to live a fulfilling and meaningful life – by engaging their senses and listening to their bodies. With the right tools and education, we can increase our confidence and happiness. We can become connected to others to shape a consciousness that extends beyond our own. Together we will unearth possibilities never before imagined.
