Dancing at Burning Man Decompression

Burning Man Decompression in October:

I’d been dancing hard for hours, was a bit worn out, and the music took an interesting intense monotonous pacing, so I ended up channeling some King of the Jungle energy.

“This is 45-caliber flow
Pound my chest like a gorilla so all the other savages know
I’m ravenous though, Jack you with the ratchet for dough” – Vinnie Paz

I’m not always this intense, I promise ;-)…well, I usually am with myself, and I like to transmute this energy in my Being into physical form thru dance…but when interacting with others I usually adapt my energy to meet others with an energy that would serve them and our connection.

(H/T to Brita Grothe for capturing & Leyna Brabantand Adam Leonard for being a great dancing crew all night)

Reading My Poem: Triggers

Reading my Poem: Triggers

Experimenting with new Creative Expression:

Here’s a recording of me reading a poem I wrote this morning.

I was channeling some of my fast tongued rap idols, so I recommend reading along with the lyrics below.

Lyrics:

Learn to love your Triggers.
Frequently originating from Incomplete Parental Figures.
For they are the keys to the doors of your Shadow Side.
The taming of the Horse, giving your Mind a Wild Ride.
Open the doors wide and let the Light Shine In.
Let the Love Flow In.
And your Higher Self will be Awakening.
Your Self-Contraction Forsakening.
Grabbing life by the horns now.
All of life for the Takening.
Heart Blown Open.
Giving birth to a new you, Laboring.
Savoring, Reality’s Wholeness Radiating into your skin like Sun Rays.
Baking in.
Sitting on the Throne of your Life, Reigning In.
Showering the World with your Presence.
You came to Win.

 

Workout: Intensity & Consistency

A clip from my workout this morning.

I was feeling a little tired and sick, but decided to workout anyway. By the end I was feeling strong and empowered.

This is 7 minutes near the midway point of my 2 hour workout.

(The main action starts at the 4 min mark).

It’s not about being perfect, it’s about giving whatever you’ve got.

Bringing intensity and consistency every single day.

“Greatness is a lot of small things done well. Day after day, workout after workout, obedience after obedience, day after day.”
-Ray Lewis

One Call Away Lip Sync — Inspired by Jimmy Fallon

Inspired by Jimmy Fallon Lip Sync battles and new forms of playfulness and self-expression, I was sparked to make this 15 minutes ago and share it.

Hope you’re okay with the lack of pre-production, rehearsal and that I’ve never done this before wink emoticon

This is for all my tribe out there.

“I’m only one call away.

When you’re weak I’ll be strong

I’m gonna keep holding on

Darling, if you feel like hope is gone

Just run into my arms

I’m only one call away”
