As of August 2021, MOC is on a PAUSE for running any Somatic Training Program Modules. We are in the process of building a new team of Leadership Partners/Directors to re-organize & update MOC’s curriculum toward a truly "Intersectional Somatics". We want to create a resilient container to better hold, support and meet the needs of our BIPOC, transgender and nonbinary students and faculty with disabilities.
MOC’s Mission, since its founding in 1994, has always been to train students in the relationship between Somatics & Social Change (bridging Somatics & the Performing Arts for Social Change) and yet we are astutely aware of the necessity to bringing this mission more front & center as we have been aware that “Social Somatics” - how the body, or the individual “soma,” is not separate from the experience in the social context that shapes it.
We are re-organizing both our Leadership Partners/Directors, our faculty and curriculum to reflect these intentions. Our future will be under the primary umbrella of what we have been calling “The Socially Conscious Body” first and will include “The Somatic Education Module” and hopefully the “Improvisational Mind & Performance Module”.
Please be patient as we figure out how to best re-organize by combining what has been useful from the past and an updated vision into our future. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO PUT YOUR NAME ON OUR MAILING LIST AND YOU WILL RECEIVE NEWS OF THE NEXT TRAINING MODULES.
NOTE: We are also in the middle of fundraising in order to pay for the time put into this re-organizing and making MOC a more sustainable organization. PLEASE DONATE ON THE WEBSITE OR write - Carol Swann, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 510-524-5013. We need all the support you are willing to offer! Thankyou for being in the embodied co-liberation process with us!
