Members: What’s the most challenging aspect of working with The Veil?
This week I’ve added THREE new songs to our EA Physical Practice playlist.
Here Comes The Flood (Peter Gabriel) to invite the taste of touch, Going Whichever Way The Wind Blows (Pete Droge) to inspire the permission of our lazy, Sunday morning roll, and When The Saints Go Marching In (Sidney Bechet) to inspire your world of standing and spinning into the unknown.
The EA Physical Practice playlist is setup to be used three songs at a time, offering new flavors and colors to each of your explorations.
This week I’ve added Abyssinian Secret (Cilla Black) to our EA Imagination Practice playlist.
The playlist begins with Perpetual Mobile (Penguin Cafe Orchestra) to ignite our Michael Chekhov work, welcome our mischievous Elysium Artist, and stir the feel of forward.
Songs are added weekly, inspiring new levels of permission and play as you cross the threshold into your playground of possibility.
It’s time to highlight a Substacker (or two) that’s sure to tickle the tastebuds and add some spice to this week’s work:
