Schrodt, the Artistic Director has for many years wanted to do a dance
concert that includes sound healing and dance healing as a part of the
total program. It is experiential for the musicians and the performers
as they work on this expression of healing through their own art form.
They experience peace and balancing through the sounds of their music
and vitality of their dance as they think about the 7 major Chakras
energy centers that they study one by one. The
experience will be complete by having it brought to the stage and bringing
the same peace and balance to the audience.

There of seven parts of this composition. Each section is one of the
Energy Chakras in the body. Each one has a specific energy clearing
modem. Each is in a specific Key, specific color, and specific part
of the body. Rosalind and Consuelo have worked together in past doing
shows in Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico. “We had a lovely reunion 2 summers
ago and Consuelo shared her work on this topic hoping I would be interested
in adding the dance to go with it. Now I can't wait to share
this. We have a lovely cast of six dancers in preparation and are immersed
in the power of sound and dance healing.” We
hoped to bring Consuelo here to perform with us but just learned she
is down with the flu and unable to travel at this time.
We were lucky that Cyd Smith is available to join us and we are thrilled
to bring her original songs and music to add to our show.

Happiness and Suffering
with Khentrul Lodrö Thayé Rinpoche
MARCH 26 & 27, 2016
at Oak Street Dance Studio
1287 Oak Street
10 a.m.-12 p.m. and 2-5 p.m.
Khentrul Rinpoche will reveal how we can enjoy much greater well-being
in our lives by sharing some remarkable and little known tools for transforming
adversity. The vast majority of us have never considered this method
for transforming our experience. It is an unparalleled approach which
directly pertains to the modern challenges we face.
This teaching is based upon a pith instruction written by the 3rd Dodrubchen
Rinpoche, Jigme Tenpe Nyima (1865-1926), one of the most outstanding
Tibetan saints of his time, and teacher to many great masters. These
gems of advice are priceless and inexhaustible treasures that will serve
as a means for overcoming adversity and for creating more happiness
in our lives and in the world. We invite everyone to attend.
$25 per session, $45/day,
$80 for the weekend

Khentrul Lodrö T’hayé Rinpoche was born in Eastern
Tibet where he received the full traditional training under many great
masters. He is the abbot of Katog Mardo Tashi Choling Monastery in Tibet
and both a khenpo (equivalent to PHD in Buddhist philosophy and a fully
ordained monk), and a tulku (recognized reincarnate master). He has
been teaching in the United States for thirteen years and has established
Katog Choling, which includes a retreat center in the Ozark Mountains
of Arkansas, as well as many branch centers, including Katog Padma Ling
here in Ashland.

with Elena Villa: “Baile por zambra”
These workshops are scheduled when Elena comes to town to perform.
Oak Street Dance Studio, 1287 Oak St, Ashland, OR
$25; pre-register by e-mailing Grant Ruiz at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The zambra is a four-count flamenco rhythm related to the tangos flamencos
and born in the ancient city of Granada, Spain–the last stronghold
of the Moors. "Zambra" also refers to a fiesta in the caves
of the Sacromonte, overlooking Granada, or a flamenco group that performs
there. The earthy, fiery and mysterious sound of the zambra represents
the meeting point between Gypsy flamenco and the music and culture of
the Moors. It evokes a mood of celebration but can also be dramatic
and melancholy. The dance is always improvised and is sometimes danced
without flamenco shoes. In this workshop, we will explore the rhythm
and basic steps, as well as the feeling and attitude of the zambra.
We’ll learn marcajes (marking steps) both in place and traveling,
técnica de cuerpo (upper body technique), and basic footwork
(taconeo) that accentuates the rhythm. This class is open to all levels
but some experience with flamenco dance movements will be helpful. Please
wear shoes with a minimum one-inch, hard heel and comfortable clothing
that shows the outline of the body and does not hide the feet.
