The Light Within
"Nothing can dim the light which shines from within.”
- Maya Angelou

I've been working on crafting the guidebook for my upcoming A Tarot Journey with the Star Card: Reclaiming Hope and Renewal mini-retreat. I delight in seeking out music, exploring movement and finding quotes to complement the experience of all of my retreats. I especially loved finding the Maya Angelou quote above as it captures beautifully the archetype of The Star. It's a reminder that each of us is the keeper of our own north star. Sometimes, in the face of difficulty, we dim our light instead of expanding it as beacon of hope, strength and faith. Throughout this mini-retreat, we will activate this space inside of us so that we feel, follow and reflect the majesty of our own brightness. There are still a few spots left so please join us! 

Several of you have asked if you can use your class for the the Nia: Moving to Heal class. YES, you absolutely can! Classes begin this upcoming Monday, November 9th at 6:00pm at Embrace the Moon in Ballard. I've been calling Moving to Heal a restorative dance practice. It has all of the beautiful crafting of Nia class, including the 52 moves, 9 movement forms, 5 sensations, and 7 cycles, but invites us to slow down so that we can focus on the art of feeling better. This is a beautiful class format for people returning to movement, recovering from injury, needing a slower pace or desiring some restoration after a long and stressful day. Kim Ivy, who owns Embrace the Moon in Ballard, has generously offered to allow us to use the chairs, mats, cushions and blankets in the space, if needed. So if you feel you need to rest for a bit, you will be able to easily do so and keep dancing from a chair or mat. 

Save the date! Thanksgiving Morning Dance of Gratitude with Jennifer and Liziah. Join us for a gratitude-infused fusion of Nia: Moving to Heal and Stretch and Fly Yoga Dance. Thursday, November 26, 9:30am - 10:45am at Embrace the Moon in Ballard. Stay tuned for more!

About the mini-retreat:
In the tarot, the Star card represents the symbolic archetype of the guiding light. Light is a source of hope, faith and divine guidance. When we explore this archetype, we have the ability to align ourselves to the north star within to guide our way in reclaiming a sense of inner peace and renewal, especially during of after times of challenge in our lives. 

Join me for this safe and sacred mini-retreat where we will cultivate practices to ignite and strengthen the light within to bring forth inner peace, renewal and healing. We will then go on a movement odyssey, collaboratively choreographing a dance that honors and celebrates the guiding light within. 

No tarot or dance experience required. All are welcome.
