Enter the Season of New Beginnings following the lead of your body and breath, in a sacred community of celebrants. From the whirling dervish to the Shakers, from the waltz to the rave, we dance for joy, cleansing, and clarity, guided by embodied wisdom that transcends the thinking brain. No dance experience is required – just a willingness to explore both ecstatic movement and deep stillness, and to draw on the strength of both practices to

• Get into your body fully
• Cleanse from your core through your pores
• Free and refresh the mind
• Rely on your body’s wisdom to inform your new direction

Through an alchemical combination of movement, relaxation, meditation and guided visualization you will gain clarity about where you’ve been, where you are, and where you’re going. A Saturday Night Dance Party will culminate in a ritual celebration to release the old and on Sunday Morning a community blessing will affirm your re-energized relationship with yourself, your work, and your dharma.
Sacred dance is one of our most ancient transformative rituals. Come sweat, let go of the past, and make space for new life. Enter the Season of New Beginnings with a deep sense of renewal.

Transformational Breath~~~Most people are not aware they don't breathe to their full capacity, which limitstheir health, energy, and quality of life.
Transformational Breath fully opens up the respiratory system. Subconscious suppressed emotions are the cause of many of our unwanted experiences. We unknowingly restrict our breathing in an attempt to block unwanted feelings of fear, anger and grief.
Transformational breath teaches us how to consciously open the breath fully which allows unconsciously held negative emotion to release and integrate resulting in greater present moment awareness.
There are many benefits people realize through the practice of Transformational Breath. These benefits include improved physical health, cleared emotional wounds and enhanced mental capabilities. Many have also found a stronger connection to spirit while cultivating a greater awareness of the breath and self. Your life can open up and become more fulfilling through the practice of Transformational Breath.
