Far too often we find ourselves sitting still. Join us for an opportunity to change that:
The Breath of the Compassionate Movement Meditation developed by educator and movement artist Mary Chase Doll premiered in New York City at The Laban Institute in June of 2018. This work is meant to be shared with others to cultivate compassion for others (and for ourselves) in our world that rampantly turns to aggression and defense. The rhetoric and scholarship that inspired the work comes from Karen Armstrong and The Charter for Compassion. The visual and musical compositions were graciously gifted by the composer Bill Alves. The Breath of the Compassionate Movement Meditation is for everyone, no matter your movement background, spiritual practice, or affiliation.
The practice of the meditation is a triptych: self (or group) movement, mantra, and external representations of the sacred geometric eight pointed star in visual and sound imagery. You are invited to engage in one or all as you are able.
Join us at Chase Public to Engage with The Breath of the Compassionate Movement Meditation by observing a performance of the movement, sound and video tessellations. Then interact with its’ creator Mary Chase Doll through reflection and discussion on the history, creation and potential impact the work can have for your community.
