"Peace begins with how I feel myself. Our way of being peaceful is to feel connected to the living swell of all life. When we feel connected we are at peace. In Continuum one of the ways we see what's going on with ourselves is not only how we move, but how we breathe. In the video is one very simple way of engaging with breath that can bring us into the embrace of life. When we do a Continuum offering, we are offering ourselves to the world of life.
In our work, we look at the
choreography of fluid as it moves through our tissue. That wave motion
is a wave that goes out to the universe and comes back. I am at peace. I
listen, I move, I pray - all of it is one thing. This wave moving
through us is a prayer - a prayer for peace, a prayer for wholeness, a
prayer for humanity, a prayer for Existence."
~ Emilie Conrad, founder of Continuum Movement
this Deep Dive Peace Prayer by Emilie Conrad the
whole body becomes Peace internal and eternal creating palpable
PeaceWaves across the planet as we experience this personally and
collectively. Emilie offers this simple potent practice to feel into
Connection as Peace, using breath as an embrace of all of creation and
opening the heart as a place of prayer. It is a deep call to embody
Peace now undulating out and back through our being.

Emilie Conrad, the founder of Continuum Movement, lived in Los Angeles, California. She is a visionary whose work is incorporated by an International audience of professionals from fields such as Rolfing, Zero Balancing, Hellerwork, CranioSacral, Osteopathy, Physical Therapy, Dance, Psychoneuroimmunology, and Physical Fitness.
Her love for movement inspired her to discover the essential, primary movements common to all life forms that lie beneath cultural influence. These fundamental movements are a “cosmology” of life, where form is fluidly mutable, dissolving and shaping itself anew.
Fluid, primary movement is essential in our ability to innovate. Enhancing these fundamental movements has a potential to create a rich intrinsic environment that brings forth new insights in our understanding of the human body and its potential to create alternate systems.
Emilie’s capacity for innovation is an inspiration to the field of Somatics, movement education, and physical fitness. She has created a dynamic workout that strengthens by incorporating multiple angles in gravity to facilitate developing diverse muscular and skeletal relationships.
One of Emilie’s contributions is her revolutionary concept of “The Three Anatomies”. Here she defines three distinct tissue structures as the cultural, primordial, and cosmic anatomies. Emilie tells us: “becoming aware of the primordial-cosmic flows of information can be instrumental in diffusing our cultural inhibitors, helping us to move beyond our stifling adaptive patterns, ultimately becoming a resource for health and creativity.”
