THE FOUR STAGES WORKSHOP
This is a powerful shaking and dancing meditation. We begin in a state of shaking, transition to dance, then to seated meditation and finally, laying in meditation. Delivering beautiful results, this workshop helps us to release and awaken our temples.
ECSTATIC DANCE EXPERIENCE
During this soulful experience, we are invited to open our hearts we dive into the art of expressive movement. Everyone is encouraged to be authentic and to move (or not move) their body how they feel most organically pulled.
SACRED WATER WORKSHOP + FLOATING MEDITATION
This is a transformative meditation and group exercise that focuses on sense withdrawal and trusting others. Enter a state of deep breathing as you experience feelings of total surrender and peace while gracefully float in water, cradled by peers and loved ones.
BEAUTY IN BELONGING
Diving into one of our greatest human strengths, we remember our truest sense of belonging. This two-part workshop, involving group discussions and partner exercises, is a transformative heart-opener designed to help us overcome obstacles on our paths and discover the art of being seen.
SACRED MOVEMENT CIRCLES
Welcome the nourishing moments to connect with your body throughout the week. This is an incredible opportunity to begin or dive deeper into a movement practice.
