Musitations™ - Continuum Montage - A Soulversation with Susan Harper (E11)

I so loved doing this podcast with one of my newest soul friends Susan Harper - a true moving storyteller, dream weaver and continuum teacher who opens portals to the vast space of creativity we all have within us!  This last year, I became a huge fan of the work of Emilie Conrad. I spent most of COVID reading, re-reading, digesting and book marking her riveting autobiography "Life on Land," where she introduces how we all have aquatic origins.  That book brought me in touch with Susan who I truly see as carrying on the soul of Emilie's work, bringing together the 3 muses of movement, sound and breath.  At the end of the soulversation, Susan helped shed light on a vocal trauma I suffered at the age of 10, and also helped me dive more deeply into my current grief around my father's dying process I am currently traversing with him as a soul doula. So grateful for this time with her.

Themes we explore on this rich, deep dive of a soulversation: 

1) The relationship between vocalization, breath and movement in continuum.

2) What Musicianing is when it comes to our own breath, movement, sounding process?

3) The dual process of rooting and reaching.

4) The dual process of autonomy and connection (interdependence).

5) Cultivating Fluid Presence.

6) What is an Improvisational moment.

7) Ways of dissolving to discover primordial wisdom.

8) Tension between what is and what is possible.

9) What is our soul-heart-song? 

A bit more information about Susan and how to connect with her and her work:

Susan Harper is a Continuum teacher, a heart-soul-counselor, creative instigator, and inspired teacher of perceptual and movement inquiry.

Susan has the ability through personal demonstration of sounds, breaths and movement to transmit a primal and spiritual fluidity that inspires participation resulting in embodied innovative discoveries. Her students call her a moving storyteller, a dream weaver, one who opens portals into the vast space of creativity, which is available in all human beings.

Susan joined Emilie Conrad, founder, in 1975 to study, and eventually became a partner in developing the organization and work of Continuum. Emilie and Susan developed teacher training programs, and co-founded Continuum Teacher Organization in 2000. She continues to mentor many of the authorized Continuum teachers.

Susan creates contexts for those who love to inquire, who dare to listen at the edge and in the depths—to be in the frontier conversation—who are aware of the adventure of courting the unknown.
