The Good Easy
With Aisha Sasha John
June 25 - 30, 2023
Let’s practice doing what only we can do—giving expression to our unique experience of reality, of being, by reporting, in movement or writing, that which is there, immediate, necessary, urgent, haunting, pleasurable—that which increases comfort, that which the system, our organism, us slash we, desires.
The good easy is the response indistinguishable from listening. Let’s elect to receive and pay attention to what arises from the quiet. We don’t have to do anything or make anything or be other than what is here—we don’t have to perform our successfulness, our virtuosity, our intelligence, our innovation—we don’t have to labour in the service of impressing the police we project onto the audience, reader, other. We don’t have to labour under orders of the police within: that is the bad easy. The bad easy is pretend. The good easy knows us as perfect, as possible, as ready, as beautiful—the good easy understands the creative wealth of turning one’s mind towards and into our body, to opening our mind to bearing witness to itself—giving voice to our fullness one moment at a time. Letting go into the dance of what could not but be.
We’ll explore the good easy—which, essentially, is an orientation of mindfulness—as movement and writing scores. The good easy is an opportunity to bring loving-kindness to the core of your creative life.
