I did my first JourneyDance on Easter Day, 2008 at Kripalu, after an amazing chanting and meditation weekend with my teacher, Russill Paul. In the magical way that things happen, I ended up at teacher training with "no intention to teach" and that was the door to radical transformation in my life. Stepping back into and rediscovering my body, self-consciousness slipped away and the natural joy, expressive energy and emotion that is me, simply poured out. The embodied experience has informed everything I do since then. JD led to intuitive painting, and nature-based work - all 3 have truly connected me to my soul. Two of the many things I love about teaching are:
1) being able to model for others that freedom to move the way my body wants to - no matter what it "looks like". Exploring emotions with movement is such a creative act!
2) witnessing the deep presence - of joy, peace, release, ecstasy - that just shines out of people at the end. My coaching work is about transformation and with JourneyDance, I get to witness it in an hour and a half. THAT is the magic and the power of embodiment!
