COLD SPRING – 2019 Connected Kindness Summer Program @ Topfield Eqestrian Center

 

Topfield’s Connected Kindness program is an inclusive program designed for children living with challenges/varying ability levels as well as neuro-typical children that is focused on providing Animal-Assisted Humane Education.

Connected Kindness aims to create an awareness of the connection between humans and animals and how kindness bridges the gap between individuals of all ages, abilities, and species. The emphasis for Connected Kindness is on mutual understanding and awareness of our actions when interacting with others, whether those “others” are human or animal. Utilizing components of a nationally recognized humane education curriculum, Topfield’s “Connected Kindness” curriculum interweaves social justice and humane education aspects into a larger ecological perspective of the connection between all living beings, including the equines with whom Topfield partners in all our activities daily.

NEWBURGH – FREE* Newburgh Open Movement @ Safe Harbors Lobby at the Ritz

Saturday, July 27, 2019

 

 

3 – 4 pm

Movement Workshop with Ophra Wolf

 

4 – 6 pm

Open Movement Jam with Live Music

 

 

Your donation helps to keep it going!

 

* $5 – $10 suggested donation for the jam, $15 for the workshop –
*NO ONE WILL BE TURNED AWAY FOR LACK OF FUNDS!*

 

 

Open to all ages, creeds, abilities, colors, shapes and sizes!

 

 

The first hour of the event is a guided warm-up and movement awareness workshop led by Ophra Wolf of Force & Flow, followed by free and open time and space for you to move or observe as you please starting at 3 pm and featuring live music with monthly guest musicians.

 

 

Kids of all ages are welcome to the jam portion with adult supervision, the workshop at the start is suitable for adults and teenagers.

 

 

Movement and dance improvisation is about moving from the inside, in a way that feels good and organic to your body, and an Open Movement jam is a setting in which everyone is an equal part of co-creating the dance of the room.

 

 

You can come dance your heart out, and you can also just come to stretch quietly, listen, observe, draw and just enjoy the energy and focus of a room full of moving bodies. You can dance alone and you can dance with others, even your stillness is part of the dance that we’ll be co-creating.

 

 

It’s about tuning in – to your own body, to the space around you, and to the people you’re sharing it with.

 

 

The only requirement is willingness to look, listen and contribute your awareness – because it’s your awareness that’s making it all come to life.
