PRESENCE in MOTION: Tango & Focusing

Do you want to improve your relationship with others?

Would you like to feel more comfortable and at ease in your body?

Do you wish you could stop beating yourself up?

If you answered YES to ANY of these questions, THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR YOU!

"Presence in Motion changed my life. It’s always been difficult for me to be in touch with my feelings and able to connect with others. This workshop showed me HOW to bring myself into the moment to connect with another person."  Jeff Mabert, Electrical Engineer

Join us Sat/Sun, June 22 & 23 10:00 to 4:00 so that you can become the calm, confident, self-compassionate person you truly can be.

This fun and interactive 2-day experience is an introduction to the basics of Inner Relationship Focusing, a mind/body mindfulness method which helps you HEAL THE INNER CRITIC and BECOME MORE CALM AND CONFIDENT as well as an introduction to Argentine tango, which is simply walking in an embrace as in the photo above. If you can walk, you can do tango. We use tango as a vehicle to practice being FULLY in your own body while connecting with another. This workshop also incorporates principles from Aikido, yoga, QiGong, and positive psychology.

Designed for people with no dance experience, this workshop gives you a powerful way to become more PRESENT to yourself and others. This is NOT a typical dance class about just learning steps or technique. It IS a great way for people who would like to dance but feel they have two left feet to get comfortable with dancing.  Experienced dancers also benefit tremendously from this approach as well though.

"As a tango teacher myself, I found this workshop to be so valuable that it was worth flying from Northern Alberta to San Francisco, not only once but twice to attend a second time." Aydan Dunnigan-Vickruk, Author of "From Trauma to Tango"

Couples can deepen their relationship through this workshop but the very best way to learn both tango and Focusing is to rotate partners throughout the practice. True Argentine tango, unlike the dramatized Hollywood version, is all about subtle non-verbal communication between you and a partner, whether that is a life-partner participating with you in this workshop or a new person that you are meeting for the first time.

"Before participating in Presence in Motion in 2013, my husband and I had been ‘on edge’ with each other for a while, without being able to get past some level of accusation and resentment. I actually experienced in my body how important it is to keep returning to my own center and sense of balance without having to ‘lean’ on my husband. The simple tango that we learned brought all of the dynamics of our relationship into the light to be seen and then the Focusing aspect showed us how to talk about those things in an honest way. We were then able to move on with a renewed sense of commitment to each other." Jane Nelson, Retired Attorney

NO PARTNER NEEDED. Singles and couples are welcome.
