Interview with Maren Waldman


Maren has studied the body in motion for over two decades – from dance technique to anatomy to somatic work. Her work draws on the physical body, experiential knowledge, and a complete adoration of the natural world.

In our interview, we explored two themes:  Embodying Permaculture & Doing awesome, regenerative work without even mentioning the word permaculture! We also talk about dance as a way to explore what “power with” feels like, and the nitty gritty of being an artist and earning a living.

Check out Maren’s current project, Postcards to the Earth (, which tends to the personal relationships between humans and nature via dance and writing. Through this project, she has the privilege of bearing witness to people’s heart-centered feelings for the natural world.

Maren’s environmental-dance workshops have been presented at the annual Front Range Bioneers conference in Colorado, the Body-Mind Centering® conference, and at the conference for the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education. As part of her entrepreneurial-artistic-mosaic lifestyle, she runs her own business called Moving Joy Studios and is also a lead instructor of dance at Front Range Community College in Colorado.

Join Maren for the Global Water Dances on June 24, 2017 in Boulder, Colorado.
