Ongoing Events

Center for the Advancement of Contemplative Education Presents:
Contemplative Dance Practice

Ongoing Series with Barbara Dilley

Spring Dates: February 17, March 3, March 24, April 7, April 14, April 21 

Spring dates: February 17; March 3; March 24; April 7; April 14; April 21.

Contemplative Dance Practice, offered during the 1980 Naropa Institute Summer Session, is a three hour practice when students sit at the interface between meditative disciplines and dance/movement studies. CDP is adapted from the experience of meditation halls and inspired by Dharma Art teachings of Naropa’s founder, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Over 35 years Naropa’s alumni have taken CDP into the world, and met new environments, cultures, and students, both beginners and experienced. We will explore the original form as well as variations offered by returning alumni. Come as you are. You have everything you need for the journey.

This is a rare opportunity to study and practice with Barbara Dilley, founding Naropa faculty and the creator of Contemplative Dance Practice. The program is part of the Heritage Project which documents, archives and trains in contemplative practices developed uniquely within Naropa’s lineage of contemplative education.

Barbara Dilley (BA, Mt. Holyoke College, ’60), trained in ballet, then studied and performed dance in New York City (1960-1975) with Merce Cunningham Dance Co., Yvonne Rainer, and Grand Union, a dance/theater collaboration that extended the definitions of improvisation. Moving to Boulder (1974), she designed the Dance / Movement Studies program at Naropa University, served as President (1985-1993), and retired in 2015. Her memoir and handbook, This Very Moment: teaching thinking dancing, 2015, Naropa University Press, is available at www.barbaradilley.com.

Ongoing Practice Series

A committed group meets on Saturdays, 10am-1pm, about twice per month, for contemplative dance practice guided by Barbara Dilley and alumni.

Please attend the intro session on February 3 if you are new to the form.

Space is very limited. Please register early.

Spring dates: February 17; March 3; March 24; April 7; April 14; April 21.

Cost: $120 // Location: Nalanda Dojo (6287 Arapahoe Ave)
