Our Mission

Still & Moving Center’s statement of its mission has provided a beacon light of guidance since the moving meditation center we founded it in Honolulu, Hawaii in 2011. Students from around the globe, inspired by our mission, have flocked here for over a decade, drawn by its timeless, uplifting message of mindful movement, community and celebration, friendship and fitness. It’s our mission that everyone who walks in, walks out feeling better.

In moving meditation we are fully present, alive in this moment, now! Some people describe this as a flow state. Everyone experiences it as Joy. We feel a connection with the universe, with our inner selves, with each other. Our bodies and minds coordinate. We may experience a certain timelessness, a greater Self-awareness.

When a whole community of people experience moving meditation, their experiences reinforce one another. Remember the wonderful feeling of dancing together in a group with friends and family, and really feeling the togetherness? The feeling of a yoga or tai chi class when everyone seemed to be moving in sync with each other? That’s a feeling you can experience here. Still & Moving Center provides moving meditation in a community.

Still & Moving Center Mission Statement

The mission of the Still & Moving Center is to provide a sacred space for moving meditation. Here we celebrate the dance of life! This is a place for seeking one’s center, for finding the serenity of stillness in the midst of motion. The Center counts on each individual to self-initiate, self-guide and self-heal. Teachers and students of all disciplines cultivate their ability to hold a point of focus during their practices, with the intent to carry the awareness they gain at the Center into the rest of their lives. All of the Center’s activities aim at expanding awareness of Self in body, mind, heart and Spirit. The quest of each activity is for the participant to become so present, so mindful of sensations, thoughts and emotions that the question may naturally arise, “Who or what is having this experience?”

The Still & Moving Center is a place for teachers from diverse movement practices to follow their sacred livelihood, earning food for the body as well as nourishment for the soul. The Center seeks to make itself available to all, regardless of economic status or age. The Center promotes stepping into one’s greatness and sharing it with others. It is a place for awakening to abundant Joy – individually, in family and in community. Here friendship, collaboration and laughter are cherished. Here we make choices to sustain the Earth and its creatures. It is a healing place, a haven for renewal. Anyone who engages in the Still & Moving Center’s offerings should walk out feeling even better, in every sense, than they did when they entered.

This dance is the joy of existence.
– Rumi
