WHO THIS IS NOT FOR

The Yearlong Program is not for you if you're looking for . . .
... a dance workshop. We bring together movement, inner work, and meditation to address body, soul, and heart. We invite feeling, sharing, and silence. Sometimes we sit in a circle for a while to listen and speak.
... therapy. While you may experience brilliant and profound healing, this is a study and practice group with the main aim of deepening awareness, aliveness, relational fluidity, and presence.
... a quick fix. What’s your problem? Unhappy with work? Trouble connecting? Lost a sense of play and pleasure? While all of these will be addressed, we ain't got a fix or a cure for you. What we’ve got is not a solution to one problem, but a context in which to hold your life.
... mastery. We offer skills, practices, and resources that will sustain you for the rest of your life. Rather than becoming a master of anything in seven steps, we hope you acquire a taste for being a life-long learner. 
... bliss. Life, or this practice, is not all violins and roses (or unicorns and rainbows). Some of the time you’ll feel excited and elated. Other times you will be faced with feelings that are difficult and uncomfortable, and places in yourself that you have resisted or avoided all your life. All is welcome here. We offer you a place, permission and support to be real and whole.

I leave each module feeling more alive and connected to myself and others. I am nourished by the work in the big circle; to hear everyone’s truth, to be seen and to see; honored by the vulnerability and humanness shared. In my daily life, I now am able to give myself permission to stay with myself and be with what is. To trust myself, to trust my heart, trust the universe. To relax, relax, relax, and simply let myself be, express what is moving in me, trust the unexpected.
