About the Offering

Tend to your body and soul in this unique workshop that weaves conscious embodiment with intuitive art & communal ritual.

As we enter shadow season, explore a body-based tool-kit to awaken your deeply held truths and align your creative life-force energy with your authentic needs & desires.

What is Dance Healing?

DANCE HEALING supports adults to transmute physical, emotional, mental and/or spiritual blockages into their creative power.

Facilitators skillfully weave embodiment modalities including: meditation, movement, voice, intuitive art & compassionate community work within a trauma-informed, brave space for personal & collective transformation.


Dance Healing is your birthright

DANCE is an ancient practice that our ancestors tapped into to heal or "make whole" within themselves, their communities and their relationship to nature. We carry this knowing in our bones, blood and belly.

Yet many of us have been conditioned to subconsciously believe that there is a right / wrong way for us to move or look to be a "dancer." 

Not here! We are reclaiming that dance is for every body, and all movement is dance when it's done with intention.

HEALING or "to make whole" is the process of re-membering all parts of ourselves as worthy of our care and attention. 

Many of us have disassociated from parts of our body (and thus parts of our heart, mind and spirit) at some point to survive.

Even though our body knows what we need, many of us learned to mistrust this innate wisdom and were taught to look outside of ourselves for the answers.


In DANCE HEALING, we restore our connection to our innate body wisdom and uncover the inner resources that facilitate our homecoming to our true nature.

“I am amazed at how potent this work is. I was able to feel more alive and me than I have in a long time. Also it was amazing to journey along with some wonderful souls and witness the transformation of all. I think everyone need this in their life. This is a practice I hope to come back to throughout my journey of life.”
