 Description and Mission

​​​
​​​​​​​​An “edge” is a brink, a verge, a threshold; it is the place where something begins or ends. It also refers to a keenness or intensity of desire or enjoyment, a bodily vigor or energy (www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/edge). Edges are the taking-off points and frontiers in your life. They represent precipices between comfort and growth, the known and the unknown, hesitancy and boldness. Edges show up as transitions, choice-points, and growth opportunities. They are the in-between places and liminal spaces – the gaps between where you are and where you want to be. Edges are places along the journey where we may want to be especially aware of our footing, how we are moving, and where we are heading. 
What are your “edges”, the choices you want to need to make? 
 
RoshiJoan Halifax describes edges this way:
“Edges are places where opposites meet. Where fear meets courage and suffering meets freedom. Where solid ground ends in a cliff face. Where we can gain a view that takes in so much more of our world. And where we need to maintain great awareness, lest we trip and fall.” (Halifax, 2018)
 
With edges, there are associated inner and outer knowings, a sense of place or where we are relative to them, and emotions that are evoked with our experience of them. All of these aspects offer rich territory for exploration. 
 
How would you describe your edges?
What opportunities do they afford you? 
 
 “Playing” is about being in the moment, fully present, and engaging in something for the sake of the activity itself. It’s more about the PROCESS and the JOURNEY and how we are BEING, rather than achieving a specific outcome or reaching a particular destination, although those may also be the results of the process we are engaged in. When we can BE with our edges differently, we can experience them with less suffering and more joy, and we can move and take action on and around them, toward and away from them, in more meaningful, effective, and fulfilling ways. 
 
“Playing the edge” is the opposite of maintaining the status quo, coasting, settling or rusting out. It means actively, mindfully, and intentionally choosingthe terrain you want to navigate, and navigating it with greater presence, awareness, and somatic intelligence; more skill; increased confidence; and a greater sense of enjoyment and satisfaction.
