Reflections on the Influence of Suprapto Suryodarmo and Amerta Movement
edited by: Katya Bloom, Margit Galanter and Sandra Reeve
Strongly situated in the daily life, culture, traditions and ecology of Central Java, Prapto's Amerta Movement practice draws on Theravada Buddhism, Sumarah meditation, sites like Borobudur temple, Candi Sukuh, and coastal Parangtritis - as well as his internationally-known Padepokan Lemah Putih in Mojosongo, Solo.

“Suprapto’s work with movement is radically inventive and his dancing a revelation.”
"Suprapto is a movement master. and his work has deeply touched my life and the lives of countless others... A joy to read for anybody interested in making the most of this creative project called living in a body on planet earth."
Ya'Acov Darling Khan, author of Movement Medicine.
"Dancing inside, dancing outside - this elegant book illuminates awareness of both body and place."
Andrea Olsen, author of The Place of Dance.
"As I continue to search for ways in which critical thinking can be brought together with movement practices taught in university settings, I am drawn to Embodied Lives… It points to ways in which embodiment not only informs perception and communication but also shapes the ways we can deepen knowledge of ourselves and others.
[Its] willingness to engage discursive theories and movement practices makes Embodied Lives… an important addition to academic reading. Although it is not published by a university press... it explores and uncovers essential links between verbal and nonverbal epistemologies."
Kate Mattingly, graduate student in Theater, Dance & Performance Studies, Univ. of California, Berkeley
