Dance Healing Training

Transform stagnancy into creative power.

DANCE: to move your body with awareness, intention & imagination.


HEALING: to make whole.


Dance is an ancient practice that helps us align our physical body with our emotions (heart), thoughts (mind) and spirit (connection to more than you). It can foster a true sense of belonging.

When we move with non-judgmental awareness, intentionality and imagination, we transform stagnant energy into free flowing life-force energy - which is the basis of our health.

However, most of us grew up in a culture that taught us to be highly critical of our bodies and how we express ourselves. This restricts our capacity to live our most authentic, creative and liberated life.

It also limits our capacity to heal, or make whole. Trauma is stored in our body, and for many of us, coming home to our bodies is an act of radical courage and care.

With the right support and tools, every body has the power to heal from within through movement, creativity & compassionate presence.

Dance Healing is your birthright.

Science is catching up with what our bodies feel and our intuition knows...


When we embody our authentic truth while we are within our nervous system's "window of tolerance," we heal the wounds that told us we are unlovable or unworthy as we are. 

We may witness trauma and release the energy that had been stored away, causing us dis-ease on some level.

As we mend our wounds by bringing our loving attention there, we learn to love ourselves more fully and have more compassion for others. 

We gain a more resilient nervous system and feel empowered to weave creativity into our lives as part of our soul's nutriments.

Neuroscience backed


In this space we honor that

All parts of us are worthy of being seen, freed and reintegrated into the wholeness of our being.

Every body is born a dancer & artist, no matter what your skill level is. It is our birthright to express ourselves creatively.

Your body is the teacher and you have full permission to listen to your inner "yes" and "no" throughout the training.

We find new edges and gifts when we work in community that we simply cannot do alone.

Non-violent communication supports us to heal and transform responsibly and with accountability.

This is for you if you...

  • ​have felt disconnected from your body and want to come home to your true self

  • experience blockages to parts of yourself and suspect trauma/wounding that you are not able to contact through talk therapy alone

  • suppress your emotions out of fear of getting stuck or rejected

  • experience feeling numb or disconnected from your aliveness

  • feel creatively blocked or judgmental of your self-expression

  • feel disconnected or confused about your intuition

And also if you..

  • are a leader who envisions facilitating group embodiment work

  • are a therapist, coach, teacher, artist or healer who is ready to infuse your work with embodiment and creativity

  • are someone who loves to dance and is ready to go deeper into the therapeutic and healing possibilities

"This experience has been incredible – beautiful, surprising, healing, creatively energizing. Over the course of our 6 weeks together, my connection to my body and my embodied experience deepened greatly; I feel like I just got out of a language immersion and can now communicate in the language of the body and the subconscious."

Dance Healing Training

Jen graduated from Dance Healing Training Level 2 in 2022 and is currently a collaborator for the 2023 cohort, where she will offer a one-on-one somatic experiencing session for everyone who has enrolled by Feb 29.

Jen's intention as a somatic healing arts facilitator is to provide a safe container for folks looking to connect to their innate resilience. Her areas of focus are in identity work and self-belonging, boundary work, prenatal and postpartum care (+ infertility, miscarriage, pregnancy loss), and injury/shock trauma healing. 


"In my experience, Dance Healing provides a unique channel to work with the language of the nervous system. It has allowed me to connect to sensation, story, emotion and imagery that guides me to more expansive and integrated healing work."
