...And my dear heart, I am terrified, but I see no other way.
I have tried to keep you safe and locked away for too long.
You have the floor now… I am listening.

if our bodies are the vessels we use to move through the currents of our lives, then the heart is the rudder, our moral compass, for navigating the cruelties and the crises in the world with compassion and grace. Like the sun, the heart gives its greatest light and warmth when it burns through the clouds of dread and despair to radiate its rays of hope and encouragement. To reveal rather than conceal our hearts is to risk our vulnerability and invites a flowering of the human condition.
In this workshop you are being called to crack the chrysalis in the center of your chest and cradle the critic that cripples your creativity. Let’s create a sanctuary where your longings and desires may root, roam, reach, and rise. Using the lens of curiosity, wonder and awe, we surrender ourselves through movement, poetry, art, witnessing and ritual to dare our dreams and sing our souls. If you feel pulled, please join our circle to be held in this sacred gathering of the potent exposing and expanding of our hearts.
here are a few things that I hold sacred:
the love of my life – anneli
the miracle of that love – jaylan
friends that cherish and challenge me
hugs (even more now than ever)
what i put in my body
dancing alone, dancing with you
truth (it’s complicated)
