Filmed over the course of a four week intensive, DEEP BLUE SEA explores the theme of ecological intervention—a process of healing and rehabilitation that involves the active collaboration between teachers, parents and the children themselves. The film shows how even the more difficult physical challenges can be slowly overcome through patience, care and sensitive collective nurturing.

A Spiral Journey is a 45 minute documentary film that describes the philosophy and methods of Spiral Praxis, a modern somatic system that has helped children and adults discover their bodymind potential. Filmed by co-founders Stephanie Gottlob & Yuji Oka, the film is a series of vignettes which showcase the power of internal bodymind techniques through the eyes of people who experience them. Beautifully and lovingly crafted, A Spiral Journey is a paean to the bodymind arts as a vehicle for healing and discovery.

Magnus is three years old and came to the Spiral Movement Center with a diagnosis of Anxiety and Low Cognitive Flexibility. With a creative movement therapy approach tailored to his specific needs, interests, and personality, Magnus has been able to learn new skills; participate in structured activities, gain confidence, develop independence from his mother, learn new gross motor skills, and verbally communicate his needs. Planting small seeds of positivity can heal anxiety in children by giving them the means to find their natural motivation and love of life.

Edward is a 71 year old man who has been struggling with multiple sclerosis for 15 years. Over that time, he had lost the ability to move his body without assistance—even rolling, crawling and walking were impossible to do independently. Through bodymind re-education, Edward has begun the beautiful process of re-connecting with his body and learning what it feels to move more freely, naturally, and joyously. His story demonstrates the ability we all have to heal and re-discover our inner potentiality.

Nahal is one of our most determined students at the Spiral Movement Center. She has been working for the past 8 months to overcome many physical challenges that are part of her cerebral palsy. Today she learned how to overcome fears and walk outside for the first time independently—we are all super proud of her!
