Moving with Spirit

Sunday, May 6, 2018 - 10:00

Friends' worship has been characterized as a listening for the still, small voice.  Quaker practice is a preparation to attend to this quiet call, which seems to emerge from the interior in a gathered body of expectantly waiting Friends.  Typically, Friends have together waited on Spirit in a seated position.  Might there be other ways to wait expectantly?

In some of our experiences with movement we have felt the promptings of Spirit.  We would like to consider Spirit-led movement; ways of creating conditions receptive to the movement of Spirit--possibly beginning with a warm-up activity, possibly accompanied by music.  The session will last about 45 minutes, held before Meeting for Worship.  

Jane Alexandre, Tom Goodridge

Jane Alexandre is a dance artist/scholar whose current practice concerns center around community, obligation and belonging.  Tom Goodridge attempts to worship through movement.
