I have been inspired to create a 24 hr movement Movement...and I extend the invitation for you to join me.
What is "movement"?
The act,or instance of moving;a change in place or position.
A series of actions and events taking place,over a period of time and working to foster a principle or policy.
I bring you Movement As Metta~phor
A 24 hour Journey,moving with purpose.
A call to Awareness.
A call for change.
We will be moving for all sentient beings, seen/unseen...That all beings know Love,Peace and an end to Suffering.
This event will be held in Pioneer Square September 11th,2013...time of highest light to time of highest light
Please feel free to come partake with a movement offering,for a minute,for an hour,or join me for 24 consecutive hours.Your choice.
This event is free,and open to all.
...and to all my friends who say they cannot dance,this isn't about dance,it's about movement....walk,hop.skip,[removed]crawl,roll,or dance...offer your movement,consciousness and energy to the Movement,in your way.
This is Ritual,whole tribe ritual.
Outside the designated movement circle,feel welcome to sit,meditate.
Movement as Metta~phor.
Prayer in Motion.
Life As Art.
Be the Symbol
Make the Gesture
Foster in Change
I am hopeful this becomes an annual event...seeding,seeding...[removed].....global,global........[removed].:):)
No dream too big and no dreamer too small :)
I endure in order to know

A 24 Hour Journey
Excerpt from my latest newsletter re: Movement As Mettaphor Event...
"...The highlight of my summer, though not directly Nia related,is definitely a part of creating my Sacred Livelihood...Living into my Purpose....and I invite you to join me in the FREE gesture and offering.On Sept 11th from time of high light (noon) to time of high light(noon) on the 12th,in the heart of Portland in Pioneer Courthouse Square,we will create space,we will move with purpose....Love For All Beings.
Inspired by friend and musician and social activist Peijman Kouretchian and his 24 hour drumming in Solidarity for Prisoners and seeking an end to torture,I sensed immediately that this was my way...my love and dedication to Animal Rights, needing to find a way to end their suffering, as well as Human Rights, I needed to create an endurance ritual,since this is the path, enduring,holding a vision...dreaming the dream of a better world for all. Manifesting through symbol and gesture. Love, Peace and End of Suffering for All Beings. Bring what inspires your heart and move it!! Be the change you want to see!
This is a free event,no dancing required,you can walk, skip, snap your fingers, anything that is movement..movement is the Movement...Movement As Metta~phor;A 24 hr Journey.... for more info please go to my Facebook Event page at
I hope you all can attend,for a minute,an hour, or all 24....
I can't think of a better way to Celebrate the gift of Nia....which in Swahili means "Moving with purpose" than by Moving with Purpose.
Thank you Nia....and haha,thank you to Anna Halperin whose gorgeous work The Planetary Dance, I am "not yet qualified" to do this training...so instead,I had to create my own way :)...DIY BABY!!!
I have heart and vision....I AM qualified to create change.
So are you dear friends....Choices made from Love....Dream,share the Dream...into waking!!
If you cannot attend due to distance,please feel free to organize a similar event near you!..."
