Classes & Workshops

Access intuitive states of consciousness and life sustaining practices that deepen your personal and spiritual growth, your connection to your supportive and loving ancestors, and to the natural world.
There are 2 components of this course:

5 Kundalini dance sessions +teachings
5 nature practices + teachings sent out each week via email

In kundalini dance we are altering our normal waking consciousness to enter a more ecstatic, relaxed and present intuitive and receptive state of being through ritual, breathwork, shaking, prayerwork, dance, sounding, qi gong, and visualization. 

We will move through one element (from Chinese medicine), it’s corresponding emotional pattern and the archetype that helps to resource this element. We will also talk about how each pattern can show up in a family line. Plus, we will discuss one new ancestral medicine teaching/practice per class. Please see the schedule below.

Deepen your connection to the elements through eco- and soul-centric practices in and with Nature. At your own pace and in your own time, these solo excursions support deeper communication with the subtle and unseen realms – including the messages and symbols from your soul and higher self, messages from your body, ancestors and guides, and from the Elements and alive intelligent beings of nature.

Are you having symptoms of chronic stress or adrenal fatigue? Symptoms may include sleep issues, mood imbalances, low energy, caffeine addiction, temperature fluctuations, anxiety/depression, menstrual cycle imbalances, sugar and/or salt cravings, digestive issues.

Join me for a 7 week series of Jin Jing Gong lineage Qigong with a special focus on healing the endocrine glands, restoring the body’s natural rhythms and cycles, and strengthening your immune system for the upcoming winter.

This series will take place outside (under the gazebo if raining), as a way to not only allow the energy of nature to heal and support us, but also as a way to help our bodies remember how to self-regulate in the cold and damp months. Qigong will help us to cultivate our “inner fire” that warms the whole body and is responsible for healthy adrenal function.

*Dancing not required, just a willingness to be present in your body. There are variations to this practice that incorporate shaking, breathing and movement. Sometimes your movement is quite small and may not look like dancing at all – so if you are interested in this kind of healing modality, do not let the “dance” part keep you from attending!*

What is Kundalini Dance?

In Kundalini Dance sessions, we apply dance, breathwork, sound and energy healing as tools for transformation, purification and spiritual activation. We explore dance, as both a spiritual practice and a transpersonal and transformational healing modality.
