Summary

This collection of poems was written between 2004 and 2009. Working with various partners, Steve Clorfeine developed a form, “moving and writing,” in which one person moves with eyes closed and the other witnesses the movement, after which both write, “free writing” style.

Witnessed moving with eyes closed is based on a form called Authentic Movement, pioneered by Mary Starks Whitehouse and later, by Janet Adler. They brought to a generation of dancers, educators, and therapists an improvised mindfulness-awareness practice, which Whitehouse called “movement in depth … moving and being moved.” What is revealed when the activity of imagining is primary, when the less visible or invisible becomes visible, when the substance of shapes, sounds, images, stories surface, mingle and compound and we are drawn deeper into the unknown and directed to mysteries?

Steve Clorfeine is a writer, performer, and facilitator with a long association to the Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, and the State University of New York at New Paltz. As an independent workshop leader, he presents training programs for theater teachers, actors, business leaders, and at meditation centers throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. Clorfeine has collaborative relationships with many colleagues from arts disciplines, including longstanding partnerships with actress Lanny Harrison and musician Steve Gorn. In 2008–2009, he was awarded Cultural Envoy grants from the United States to create theater pieces in India and in Nepal. He has been a student of Shambhala Buddhist teachings since 1974. Steve lives with his wife in Kingston, New York, and in New York City.
