The 3 Anatomies Of The Heart: Personal, Biological, Cosmic.

April 19 – 22, 2018, Durham, NC  

The 3 Anatomies of The Heart: Personal, Biological, Cosmic are integral to our existence, essential to the expression of our health, and fundamental to our connection to the world in which we live, but many of us struggle with fully engaging with these vital forces. This workshop will present a wide scope of views of the heart, ranging from the personal, cultural, structural, biological, primordial, functional, to the cosmic, energetic, and spiritual, and provide ways to integrate this knowledge through experience.

There will be lectures, discussions, and visual presentations to accompany movement, breath, sound, and meditation explorations. This workshop experience can be valuable both as a form of self-exploration and care, and as a way for practitioners to develop and deepen the perceptual skills used with patients or clients.

Bonnie Gintis offers a unique blend of Osteopathic principles and philosophy, scientific and medical information, poetry, and perceptual inquiry, combined with an opportunity to experience it all through Continuum practice. Utilizing breath, sound, movement, meditative open attention, and perceptual inquiry, this workshop provides an opportunity to experience an embodied understanding of the wisdom of the embodied heart of the living human body.

In this workshop we will explore innovative views of:

  • The anatomy, physiology, and embryology of the heart
  • the heart as an expressive and receptive organ of communication
  • the relationship of the heart, the brain, and the face
  • the dynamics of blood, lymph, and other fluid movements
  • the relationships the heart has with other viscera/organs
  • psycho-neuro-immunological relationships mediated by the heart
  • the interpersonal neurobiology of the heart
  • the sound of the heart and the sound of the movement of blood
  • perceiving “the field of the heart” in ourselves and in others
  • the heart as a form in space, and a movement in time
  • the cosmic resonance of the spiraling vortex of the heart

Artful Embodiment™, Diving in the Waters of Creation

JULY 1 – 6, 2018 at Omega Institute, Rhinebeck, NY

To view a video about this event, click here.

Water supports all life; it is the generative primordium that unifies existence. Embodying water, we take on its ability to adapt and remain coherent through radical change. In the felt sense of fluidity, we feel more whole and alive, enabling us to see fresh options and resiliently navigate change in our health, our relationships, our work, and our communities.

The breath, sound, and fluid movement explorations in the somatic awareness practice of Continuum take us on a deeper dive into the art of becoming like water. Daily movement sessions delve into the fluid process of embryological development, allowing us to experience the transformative and regenerative nature of our own physiology. Somatic explorers, each following his or her own stream while supporting others with presence and insight, create an enriching community. By nourishing our life force, we connect with our innate creative capacity where freedom and joy reign.

Optional offerings include an evening performance from Watermark Arts and classes applying Continuum to yoga, dance, self-care bodywork, and fabric art creation.

The skills shared in this workshop are of benefit to persons interested in moving the world from embodiment, including bodyworkers, artists, activists, therapists, teachers, and parents.

Hosted by Elaine Colandrea of Watermark Arts and co-taught with Mary Abrams, Priscilla Auchincloss, Megan Bathory-Peeler, Robin Becker, John Bianculli, Ellen Cohen, Bobbie Ellis, Ashima Kahrs, Rebecca Lawson, Melanie Gambino, Bonnie Gintis, Amber Elizabeth Gray, Beth Pettengill Riley, Val Leoffler, and Suzanne Wright Crain.

Classes with Bonnie Gintis, DO explore the common ground shared by mindfulness, Continuum’s fluid movement, and Osteopathy. A variety of workshops are offered for people who are interested in exploring the vast possibilities for the full expression of health and embodiment. Classes are valuable as a form of self-treatment, and as a way for people involved in any aspect of healthcare to develop and deepen diagnostic and treatment skills. Some classes are open to people of all levels of function and ability, including those with disabilities, or limited movement and exercise ability. Some courses are tailored to the needs and interests of people with particular health concerns. Others are oriented to Osteopaths, MDs, and other healthcare practitioners.
