Connecting Earth and Sky: Standing Gestures of The Embodied Life School


50 page booklet of The Embodied Life Gesture Sequence includes a collection of writings and hand-drawn, colored pencil drawings that collectively present a practice and path of awareness. The words and drawings convey both the specific form of the seven central movements and their energetic directions.

These archetypal gestures came to Russell Delman over years of meditation and,in collaboration with Linda Delman, have been honed as a simple, profound expression of the human relationship to the earth and the sky, to the manifest and the transcendent.

“This reading can present a beautiful, profound, and reinvigorating approach to movement.”
– Steven J. Chatfield, review from Journal of Dance Education
