Connecting with a Larger Sense of Self
Primordial Movement emulates the intrinsic movements and fluid forces of our biological beginnings. A variety of movement explorations, including wave motion, micro-movements, sounds, and breaths, enliven our organism back to its natural state of flexibility, fluidity, vitality and wholeness.
Awakening bio-intelligence through the liquid, undulating organic movements refines our ability to consciously participate with life's self-healing processes and creative unfolding.
Primordial Movement explores the idea that we are biological living systems in the form of human bodies with the capacity to self-stabilize, regenerate and evolve. We are naturally resilient, intelligent, and interconnected in all ways with our biosphere. Rousing our inherent capacity to unite with the intrinsic movement of life turns our practice into a communion with life's restorative energies.
Softening into the animating forces that call us into life awakens ancestral memory, restoring our primal nature as Love. We come home to our planet-self and the ability to creatively respond to the needs of our world.
Self-paced and intuitively centered, this meditation-in-motion encourage authentic, spontaneous and imaginative exploration. The deeply pleasurable practices bring positive benefit to anyone regardless of experience or physical health.
Primordial Movement is the foundational movement practice in the Shamanu: Earth Wisdom Teachings.

"The more I sink into the Primordial Movement practice, the more I understand that indeed this IS the movment of Love. I can feel it, and it is transforming me. Thank you for showing me the way to connect with Nature's powerful healing energy." Katie
The Healing & Transformational Gifts of Primordial Movement
For over twenty-two years Lorenna has pioneered a deep exploration of the relationship of our human body with our planet. In Primordial Movement a strong emphasis to develop our capacity to feel sensation refines our ability to perceive the unifying field between other and us.
Connecting to the flow-through of energy from environment to organism, we tap the extraordinary ingenuity and creativity of our nature-self. Reclaiming our birthright as intelligent living systems in communion at all times with life's regenerative processes, we become evolutionary participants in this EarthDance and its future.

What happens in the Primordial Movement
"We don't do movement, we are movement.' founder of ‘Continuum', Emily Conrad. This process is for everyone.
Primordial Movement is an organic process that requires deep listening to what is needed in the moment. For this reason every Primordial Movement workshop is different, depending upon the experience and needs of the participants. We encourage authentic, spontaneous and expressive explorations. Incorporating feelings, memories, and creative impulses are welcomed elements in creating the matrix for your practice.
An Experience To Renew and Reconnect
The workshop offers you time and space to be in an atmosphere where tension can melt; where you become more resonant, open and receptive to what is life sustaining; a space where your capacity to replenish and renew is ignited.

It is a joy for me to express how powerful the week has been within the wave motion and toning. I realized it was time for me to care more about my body, which means taking time daily to just communicate, and listen letting my body, and my cells answer me the way I really need. Thank you from my heart to Lorenna and Shantree to serve humanity the way they are doing......
