The essence is to know your souls’ dance

Form changes, but essence remains intact. The material world dissolves, but the energy that courses through us transmutes into something vivid and clear. How do we embrace old age? Margie Gillis uses her body to illustrate this evolution, one that is punctuated by highs, lows, loss, and discovery. As she herself navigates this new phase of her life, she invites us to join her as she faces a depletion of the physical body with softness and acceptance. OLD is a tumultuous journey brimming with possibility.
