REFLECTIONS ON MAUI, HAWAII SPRING RETREAT 2016 BY CHRIS MATHIAS

Dance is now my relationship with every thing: peoples, places, systems. The interplay is a come and go, a turn and twist, a slip, a lunge, a pause and a dip!  It is spirited and calm, evocative and pensive. 

These past few months have been most auspicious. I have attended many conferences, convergences and retreats. My intention for spring 2016 was to accept every invitation to events where my opinions would be challenged, my experiences would be expanded, my senses extended and my perceptions shaken. InClaritas occurred during the middle of this practice. On the spectrum of experiences, it fell in the middle as well.  The edges of the bell curve were represented by a commercial gathering of entrepreneurs and a two-day peyote journey guided by a Huichol Elder and shaman. The breadth of human experience, the extent of diversity continues to enthuse me. Even the holographic possibility (likelihood?) blows my mind. I am the eyes, ears, nose, tongue, skin and intuition of the UNI-VERSE.

My time with you in Hana continues to influence my days and my perception.  I intend to return to Alakukui this fall to continue this exploration. I feel great gratitude for the experience of you, the experience of us, the support of the people of Maui and Hana, the teachings, the patience, the quiet and the ancestral reverence.

My days now are full of dance.  Dance is my relationship with every thing: peoples, places, systems. The interplay is a come and go, a turn and twist, a slip, a lunge, a pause and a dip!  It is spirited and calm, evocative and pensive.  Today I am at a 4 day music festival in Telluride, Co and this week I go the a global mapping conference where my non-profit, PUENTE, is one of 14 selected organizations to exhibit in the SUSTAINABILITY HALL.  We are dedicated to SPIRIT, SCIENCE and ART and my time with you in Hawai’iana has helped to curate this devotion, this vision. We have been gifted with great fortune and opportunity since we met and I am in gratitude for the elevated field you manifest.
