For ten years I gathered weekly with a group of warm and wonderful people who wanted to dance their emotions and desires. We all held the intention of pulling in joy, and I swear, they soaked my dance studio with the best juju ever! That was my immersion into sacred dance that shapes me to this day.
I also created a WILD WOMAN style of dance that was all about swinging our skirts like crazed spirits seeking release!
I strongly believe that those ten years mentioned above were the absolute best training, but I also discovered a love of NIA dance, and how similar it felt to what we had created organically. I earned my White Belt in Nia training on a beautiful island near the Carolinas. I taught weekly classes for years, as well, and it pulled me out of despair. That's not an exaggeration.
I also pursued teacher-training in American Tribal Style dance. The goal of being in the moment with this cued-improv style of dance was a natural extension. I taught this style of dance for five years. I adore it!
I've taken untold numbers of workshops in all styles of dance and energy work for over a decade to keep discovering, to keep growing... It will ALWAYS be a part of my path to continue learning.
I think all energy work begins with years of self-study and the beautiful act of SEEKING. I found myself co-leading a large Pagan group at the UU church for a number of years, facilitating experiences and discovery for others.
I am a registered PRIESTESS of Vega's Path-a strong body of work in Elemental and Universal energies. I hope to continue my studies with my spirit sisters and teachers, Ruth Souther and Teri Freesmeyer, though distance makes that a challenge. I highly recommend all of their workshops- they are life-affirming and powerful sources of renewal.
