WEAVING WISDOM WORKSHOP
In this workshop, we use our hands and intuitive minds, while tapping into our heart's wisdom. As we work with the power of intention and surrounding nature, we create a memorable item of magic to bring home from our sacred journey.
ECSTATIC DANCE EXPERIENCE
During this experience, we are invited to open our hearts through the soulful and artful exploration of expressive movement. Everyone is encouraged to be authentic and to move (or not move) their body how they feel most organically called.

Welcome peace and stillness as you journey into deep meditative states through the world of sound. These immersions create positive internal shifts, heal emotional wounds, help the body soften and foster heart-opening experiences.
Embrace opportunities to explore writing, learn breath-work exercises, practice meditation and sacred movement. A disciplined, daily practice supports new pathways for change and welcomes a deeper transformations of the Self.
