“One of Those Days” Song by Jim Shattauer, Minnesota InterPlayer, children’s music performer extraordinaire
Welcome the Angel practice
• Take a deep breath.
• Open your arms like wings.
• Give yourself a hug.
• Squirm out the kinks of the day.
• Shake out the day for as long as it takes.
• Take a deep breath and let it out with a sigh.
“Take it Easy” video
Like one in every 1200 children, Bill Shannon has a bilateral hip deformity — his hips aren’t round, and putting pressure on them creates swelling. Since the age of five, he’s been using crutches, and by now, he considers them be an extension of his body. Instead of feeling handicapped, Shannon has turned walking on crutches into an art form! In this video, watch Bill take it to the street, dance, skate and more — all to challenge images of disability through performance art. On the streets, they call him Crutch.
Raise A Hand in Blessing
When we dance hand to hand we often practice opening the space between us. We can often feel that connection even when we aren’t right together. Raise a hand in blessing. Turn in a full circle (or not) and know that others are sending blessings to you too.
Listen to “Love Opens” by Mary Grigolia
Love opens up our bodies
Love opens up our spirits
Love opens up our hearts
We’re seeds of love.
Deep Breath, Let it out with a Sigh…
