Join us for SHIFT every 3:30pm Saturday at the Peace Full Soul, 4940 NE 16th, just south off Alberta street, in Portland, Oregon.
At SHIFT we move as animals, as mountains, as rivers, as trees, we learn to use our bodies powerfully and gracefully, whether in self-defense, or in moving like ghosts in the wilderness (urban or otherwise). SHIFT happens both indoors and outdoors; for the rainy season we feel happy to have an indoor space to move in part of the time.
We dance and play as otter.
We gruffly stamp as bear.
We stand immovable as mountain.
We breathe and shelter like cedar.
We drum our rhythm like ocean.
We SHIFT into the wild.
At SHIFT you play intuitive theater games, you find and use your center to become immovable (and easily move others), you practice the filipino martial-art of escrima/kali, you dance, you play, so you can take your skills out onto the street and into the woods to keep yourself safe and having fun.
To help pay for the space, we ask for a $5 to $10 donation.
