“Discovering more joy does not…save us from the inevitability of hardship and heartbreak. In fact, we may cry more easily, but we will laugh more easily too. Perhaps we are just more alive…as we discover more joy, we can face suffering in a way that enables rather than embitters. We have hardship without becoming hard. We have heartbreak without being broken.” ~Archbishop Desmond Tutu
Thru embodiment, movement, dance and self-awareness practices, we will explore where Joy lives in our body. We will focus on Happiness, Joy, Love and Compassion finding their way to being installed in our life as pillars of growth from this point forward.
- Guided by Kamla Sufi and her vast array of music, we will embark on an exploration of our physicality and its connection to our emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. We will dive into self-discovery, self-acceptance and self-expression using the universal language of movement and dance.
- We will gain a deeper understanding of our body’s innate intelligence, enhance our capacity for self-expression, and discover new ways to feel at home within ourself and in the presence of others.
- Throughout the workshop, we create a safe and inclusive space where participants can authentically connect with their bodies and express themselves through movement.
- Regardless of your previous dance experience or physical abilities, this workshop is designed to meet you exactly where you are, supporting you in embracing your unique body and its wisdom.
- I hold the space to be an inclusive environment for all genders, ages, BIPOC and abilities.

This immersive workshop is about learning to feel more at home in your body off and on the dance floor. Join us as we build reverence and compassion for ourselves in both places. Together we will delve into the profound relationship between our body and our sense of feeling at peace and in joy.
Saturday Dec 9th, 2023
Embark on a transformative journey to explore the art of navigating life’s decision making, learning to move over the threshold towards what resonates or allowing yourself to gracefully step back. Join us for a dynamic exchange of self-discovery towards clear “YES” and “NO” off and on the dance floor… a celebration of the limitless possibilities that unfold when we courageously cross the thresholds of our existence with clarity and joy. We will gain a deeper understanding of our body’s innate intelligence to guide us through this upcoming New Year.
