Workshops and Events

Enliven your personal growth journey with embodiment and creativity!

As you walk on your life path, it’s natural to feel many ebbs and flows of motivation and clarity. When you dip into stuckness, stagnation, or muddy confusion, it’s time to invite in some fresh energy.

Let’s add some movement, creativity, and fun into your process! Left-brain approaches to self-reflection (like dance, movement, and art!) open up new pathways where you can learn, grow, and gain new tools and insights.

This is your chance to bond with others on a similar path.

You are a seeker, and there is power in joining with other seekers. Our personal process of self-reflection, development, and growth is strengthened when we spend time with others who value these as well. We will create an intentional space with community support around our shared experiences.

My workshops and community events feature somatic and creative practices. You’ll use movement, dance, and art as tools to facilitate your inner awakening and expression!

Upcoming Workshops and Events

Queer Authentic Movement for LGBTQIA+

You know your body is wise. You can feel it deep in your bones. Yet really listening to the body and being receptive to its messages can be a challenge. The collective stress and trauma that we experience, especially as queer folks, can block connection to our bodies, our intuition, and our authentic self-expression.

Somatic (body-centered) practices invite us to reconnect deeply with our embodied self, release emotions stored in our bodies, and explore the stories that have shaped us. Authentic Movement is a meditative and therapeutic practice that helps us open to a more receptive state where we can welcome in our innate body wisdom, and express feelings and experiences that have been held trapped inside. When we sense and move in this intentional way, we become more connected to our true selves and create more space to show up authentically in the world.

This workshop will include guided practices to increase body awareness in a safe and grounded way, prompts to help you get in touch with your inner stories, open movement time with both music and silence, the opportunity to be witnessed by community, and time for group sharing and integration.

This event is open to LGBTQIA+ identified adults ages 18+.

When: Friday January 12th 2-4pm

Where: 325 W South Boulder Rd, Louisville, CO
