Somatic Lab w/ Paul:

Gratitude as a formative principal

Imagining, gratitude as a formative principal, as an orientation or perspective that, when invoked, can directly shape our experience of ourselves, each other, and the world around us.

Gratitude as an affirmation of life

As we seek to be held in the web of life,

where does a path of gratitude lead us? 

What do our senses perceive of our vitality along the way?

Gratitude as a creative expression.

Can our bodies express gratitude?

With an "Attitude of Gratitude", what can the whole of us learn about tuning up, composing and playing...  a dance of gratitude?


✧✧✧ Creating Altar'd Space for this dance ✧✧✧ 

If you're interested in creating an Altar for any Coalessence Dance, please check out our Signup Genius Page to learn more & sign up. Earn 2 free dances for creating 1 altar. We supply a black fabric foundation and backdrop along with some lighting. You bring the inspiration and ingredients :) 

Consent and Wristbands:

   We humbly ask that everyone continuously cultivate an atmosphere of consent, where our awareness of others' experiences inform how we practice our dance, and how we make our ways through the world. This means getting clear verbal or non-verbal yes's or no's from those we approach. If "yes", we are always sensitive to changes and endings. If "no", we acknowledge the clarity with grace and appreciation.

   We offer Red, Yellow & Green wristbands at the door for those wishing to clearly, visually indicate level of interest in interacting. Wearing them is not required but please do if so inspired.

   More in the opening circle (6:30) on how we work creatively and collaboratively to create a dance experience expressing respect and overall awesomeness towards all; please be present and participatory. 



Masks are required at all times whil in the Wow Hall.

•••Masks are required at all times while in the Venue•••

•••These need to be masks designed to limit the spread of Covid•••

   Both the Wow Hall and Village School are being very accommodating to us because they understand how important dance is to the community. Opening up to Coalessence is a risk to them and it’s important that we honor and respect their needs around Covid safety.

   In general, we are following CDC, State of Oregon and Wow Hall or Village School mandates and/or guidelines. Masks are now required by the State of Oregon for all indoor events so if you want to be in these venues, for now at least, you have to be wearing a mask. Please bring your own N-95 compliant or surgical type mask and keep them fully secured over your nose and mouth. We also have surgical masks at the door for free if you need.

   Please do not attend if you are not willing to wear an approved face covering. Please respect those who come to Coalessence expecting to be in an environment where effective masking is the standard.

Please do not attend if you are experiencing any Covid symptoms, if you have been in contact with anyone who is, or who has recently tested positive.

   Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. We are continuing to learn how to connect and care for one another while living with what appears to be an ongoing presence of the Virus.
