"Before the Talk & Performance, I had little idea of what Dance & Movement is all about. I came more to see you (after you've been away for so long) and to find out what you have been up to doing this Embodied Movement stuff... You gave a pretty concise introduction of what Dance & Movement is about and your personal experience of doing that to help people. I found it a rather interesting sharing even though I am not really drawn to doing it myself yet. At least now I know what it is and how it can help people in all walks of life to be more aware, more relax, more in-tune, etc.
The performance segment was an eye-opener as it was the first time I saw you in action on your own (I've seen you dance in a group before) and especially it was telling the story of your own life and growth, giving me new insights to understand you better, even after knowing you all these years. The selection of music and the impromptu & powerful movements that flowed so well made an impact to me as a member of the audience. It was indeed a new and refreshing experience to me.

"I find it very refreshing and your talk gives me a new perspective of looking into oneself without feeling awkward. Often times we are so self conscious that we hold back. Watching you free yourself is so liberating. That gave me a good feeling of a bodily experience. Thank you for raising that awareness in me. "
