Movement meditation and dance

Several years ago I designed a simple template for a movement meditation group that meets once a week for an hour.  The template is about half sound practice and half structured movement practice and is designed to help people who don't think of themselves as "sitting meditators" find a practice that enriches their sense of calm, spaciousness and community over time.  This template grew out of the work I did for the Performing the World conference, and the original group is still going to this day, now led by someone else. 
I'm very interested in helping any community create a practice group where it would benefit people to come together and create peace through practice.  I can design movement meditation programs ranging in length from an hour to a day to meet the needs of diverse communities.
