Michael Hurd started dancing at raves in the New York city in the 90’s (the 1890’s). He’s been doing contact Improv for 20 years, facilitating and DJ’ing ecstatic dance waves for 8 years, and he still hasn’t done any of it right (or wrong). Along the way, he did 8 years of residential Zen training, 4 months residential yoga training, got a Masters in Counseling and became an SEP (Somatic Experiencing Practitioner). He’s been practicing therapy for 5 years and has been a licensed General Contractor for 10 years. Despite having first encountered NVC (Non-Violent Communication) two decades ago he still manages to put his foot in his mouth on a regular basis. If you picture him with horns he kinda looks like Pan.
