movement as medicine: Movement is the essential nature of all things and a common quality of subtle energies that are primary to all forms.

In MMA, we engage varying degrees of structure in various modalities which all profoundly deepen attention and free-up movement, with the provision of information about energetic anatomy to support practices.

Through movement focused on how freedom itself creates form, we directly experience alignment, new knowings, and ripe transformations.

our primal and direct connection to that that is moving All, is the primary medicine.

  • keren's offerings in MMA are cutting edge and very important in these times, wherein our religious codes and dogmas have failed to inspire us or to reveal to us the truth of our Selves within the broader spiritual reality. the encouragement of direct experience and knowing is vital right now...truly movement!

Movement= dance, voice & music

each of these modes of expression ARE movement

Throughout history, peoples have engaged music, dance, song and ritual to know the Spiritual Realities, to experience themselves as much more than flesh, bones, characters and personalities, as well as for transformation and new insights.

In MMA courses, we tap the same primal sensibilities and touch the same essential Spiritual Realities, while employing no specific doctrine, codes or cultural reference.

The experience of our True Nature, both as individuals and as a collective, is the healing, the medicine.
