Lynn is a certified Open Floor conscious dance teacher (openfloor.org), and also studies with Sylvie Minot, whose Syzygy Dance Project (syzygydanceproject.org) works with inmates, veterans and people in recovery programs in the San Francisco Bay area. Along with Pat Dolan, she co-founded ArtMoves, which integrates conscious dance and other art forms into art instruction.
I am a longtime artist of drawing and printmaking. My study of conscious dance and meditation over the last several years, culminating in my certification as a dance teacher, has blown open my sense of my art “form.” I am currently exploring the synthesis of art and movement in both my own work and my teaching. This process is challenging, confusing, and so much fun I can hardly stand it! I have become deeply aware of how many of us “cut ourselves off at the neck,” and how we suffer from it. My interest now lies in connecting/reconnecting our minds to our bodies to create fuller artistic expression of our individual being, and our collective human being-ness to the larger natural world. As a teacher, my job is to reflect back to my students the wondrous, unique artist and human being they already are, and provide a path for cultivating their awareness and skill whereby they can see it for themselves.
