2nd Degree Black Belt: Art of Form

The body is a living kaleidoscope of beauty and wisdom revealing itself moment-to-moment in natural time. Our body and life is a living continuum, a wave of matter-mystery-motion, existing in an interdependent dance with the atomic, natural and super galactic worlds. Our body is continuously emerging formed from timeless past and dissolving into formless future. Everything at every level of universal life systems possesses Form + Formlessness.  Nia Art of Form explores the mystery of form and formlessness through our body’s movement and our perception of sound. Through movement we find health; and, through movement life is revealed in the present moment as a dancing swirl, a vortex of sound, crystallizing into the material Now.

Nia 2nd Degree Black Belt develops felt-sense perception of living in a nested system, the body (from atom to organism), in a nested system – in a society, in an ecology, on a planet, in a universe. Movement chemistry expands beyond three art forms into new living territories. Ephemeral expression embodies the inherent joy of movement in all living systems; everything is conscious and self-aware. Crystallographic Sensory Poetry is revealed as the felt-sense of matter-mystery-motion. Meaning is the essential system output from Nia Art of Form. 13 Tones overlay 13 Vital Factors transforming all felt-sense into musical notes, pitch and tone. This vibratory sonic constellation of awareness creates new body-mind intelligence that nourishes your felt-sense of joy and relationship to infinite creativity in your body and life.
