The “Stillness Studies” training forges a space for finding the sense of stillness deep within ourselves and moving from these “stillpoints”. The training draws from threads of accumulated life experience to bring to the surface valuable core movement and emotional content. Our goal is to reach into the depths of our life experience and find shining threads that connect ourselves to the world we live in. With these threads, we seek to excavate and discover new experiences of communicating that do not rely on words but rather on more primal and instinctive forms of understanding.

Our stillpoint movement method focuses on joining the inner and outer landscapes into physical expression as well as in relation with one another, as part of the collective. Our hope is that by reaching deeper levels of consciousness within the movement practice and opening up for others, we can move toward creative, proactive human development within our present-day social context together.

We hold containers for deep inquiry, opening, support, and witnessing.

All are welcome, regardless of experience.

The movement practices in Stillness Studies are accessible by all bodies. They may even involve little to no physical movement, as well as incorporate less conventional and organic movements.

We love working with new communities and new places and are open to traveling. If you’re interested in a Stillness Studies workshop for a group of 15 or more, reach out to info@stillnessinstitute.org.
