Dance / Meditation

Performance / Practice

Moving Ground is a contemplative art form designed to encourage an experience of embodied freedom.  It’s where dance and meditation meet. One’s relationship to the mind softens, the body leads, and we get in touch with inner movements through the outer movements, stillness through motion. Moving Ground can be a performance art installation, a group workshop or a personal meditation practice.

The origins of the movement philosophy comes out of Motion Sculpture, a method developed by Claire Elizabeth Barratt of Cilla Vee Life Arts

Performance Installation at Olde Mechanicsville Park

Lotus Light Center  and Fearless Motion collaborated on an interactive public art experience. Thanks to support from the Tennessee Arts Commission, May 2022 Olde Mechanicsville Park was transformed into a living sculpture garden. During this 3-hour performance installation, 11 dancers and musicians responded to Zen Koans that were hanging on banners skillfully created by visual artist Ashely Addair. The audience was invited to walk through this multi-sensory experience at their leisure and try out this form of expression themselves. The Lotus Light Center hosted kids activities, snacks and discussions, in their building right across the street. Through this unusual blend of Koans, Dance, Music and Visual Art we hope to inspire people to discover their own embodied presence and inherent resilience, through a calm and wondrous  encounter.
