Rainbow Hammocks and the mystery
By Susannah
I got home last week from a visit to my parents, to find out that my ticket to Switzerland had been booked a day earlier than it should have been, which gave me a very short turn around time. Before that I’d been teaching Phoenix (thank you to all the Phoenix dancers for a beautiful and profound journey) and I was longing for a couple of days quietly at home before setting off again. So I was not pleased when I got home to get the message from the guy who books our tickets that he’d made a mistake, had only just realised it, and that it was too late to rectify it. In fact I felt defeated, unsupported and really upset. more>
Dancing Across the Great Divide
By Ya'Acov
21 years ago, at midday on a sweltering summer’s day, a few miles outside the village of Snowflake, Arizona, I crawled out of a sweat lodge into the harsh glare of the desert sun. It was even hotter outside than it was inside. And this was the fourth lodge we’d done in as many days as we prepared for the Deer Tribe’s Sundance. more>
Manari, Welcome to the Long Dance!
By Susannah & Ya'Acov
We are honoured that this year, Manari Ushigua Kaji, a visionary leader from the Sapara people of the Ecuadorian Amazon, will be with us for the Long Dance. The Sapara people are a dream culture who are on the edge of extinction, and yet exude joy, gentleness and strength. more>
Moving Stories
By Rob Porteous
One way in which I understand what I do in my work as a counsellor is that I engage in a dialogue with the stories people bring about who they are and what happens to them. Very often these stories have a repeating pattern or theme running through them, like the dance of the understudy through life’s experiences. more>

The poem below, 'Behind' is written by Ya'Acov. He read it to those who were gathered to celebrate his 50th birthday at the end of April and I was so struck by how it captured something essential both about him and about the Movement Medicine work, I immediately asked if we could publish it in this newsletter. I am so glad that he has agreed and I hope you enjoy the poem as much as I do - Roland more>
