“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open.”
― Martha Graham
The art of life is, perhaps, to live without judgement, in a state of flow. This flow is the mystical experience at the razor’s edge between control and surrender. It is, perhaps, the spontaneous, the unaffected, the authentic, the unique, the free, the vibrant, the Living. It is through expressive arts, done for the sake of the process — not the product — that we can tap into this state. And the more we tap into it, and the more expressive arts we explore, the more we develop our Voice — the more we become an open channel for our utterly unique expression; a “hollow bone”.
We offer liberative music, painting, writing, acting, and speech coaching.
