WELCOME TO JOURNEYDANCE™ WITH
I will never forget my first experience with the Journey Dance tribe. It came to me at a very dark time, when I was secretly questioning if life was literally worth continuing. A friend invited me to Kripalu I walked in to a room full of hundreds of people. I was nervous, unsure of myself, and afraid to be seen. There was live drumming and we started off rolling around and connecting to a side of me that had been long forgotten. That place where I used to play, connect, and love. The place where I used to smile and laugh and feel other emotions besides pain and grief. As we began to rise up I began to notice my body, my temple, and how I never thanked it anymore. Then we began to dance with each other and I realized that I stopped loving other people, I had created a story that they would all hurt me. I even stopped loving myself. I couldn't even trust myself anymore. Then Toni led us through the fire ceremony and I burned all those old stories that didn't serve me any longer. I found my inner warrior that I had long lost, she was still there ready to fight for my life. I allowed myself to feel everything I had been keeping in. I sobbed. I shook. embraced my darkness. I let go. Then I celebrated who I was underneath all of that, without all of my human-ness. I celebrated my Divine Inner Goddess. I celebrated who I was about to become now that I had let go of the past. I fell in love with myself and everyone on that dance floor, the musicians, the art of how every dancer moved, chakra by chakra I shifted right there on that dance floor to a state of bliss. In one hour I was moved. Shifted. Transformed. That is the power of Journey Dance. That is why I want everyone to have access to this. Let's transform the world, one dance at a time.
