Calling the Warriors
View this email in your browser
"Dive down into the deep
Backward through the haze
There is a mighty seed
That's attracted you since everlasting moments
Jump into the abyss
To the bottom of your soul
Dig up what there is
A sleeping giant waiting to awaken
Calling the warriors.
Now is the time for us.
Release the warriors.
Conceive the genius...
It takes courage to live in this world
And it takes courage to love in this world.

- Excerpt of song lyrics for Warriors by Vargo

This past weekend I drove down to Centralia, WA to reunite with the lovely Nia community at Embody Movement Studio. Christina Wolf, visionary and owner of Embody is the embodiment of a love warrior. She has created the energetic and physical imprint of a space where students come to dance, explore health and wellness, learn, laugh and feel connected to themselves and to each other. This was my second visit to Embody and during this adventure I shared an introductory ArcanaDance workshop on the archetype of the Visionary, co-taught a Nia class with Christina (SOOOO FUN!!) and did short tarot counseling sessions with members of Embody. Here's what I know for sure after the ArcanaDance workshop, over a dozen visionaries  were awakened and are about to happen to the world! Watch out world! The genius in the room was electrifying. I left feeling deeply loved, connected and inspired.

Take a look at a short video of our Nia class at Embody. So fun! 

My experience in Centralia felt in rich alignment with the month of February, what I call "the month of activating the love force." I shed the imprint long ago that February was the month for mates, partners and spouses. That is much too limited of a perspective of love. We should always strive to be love warriors but this is the month we get to give self-love and love for others an extra boost. The simplest things evoke love, from a sincere compliment to a gesture of support, from a hug to a wink, from a text to a phone many ways to let love live.

I have a hot date tomorrow night, on Valentine's Day evening, with my Nia community. I am so excited to teach at 6:00pm at Balance Studio and dare you to come join me :))) to explore the newest Nia routine Deep Dive! I love this routine so much.It is exquisite from beginning to end - taking us on a journey through the liquid space in our bodies. It invites us to bubble, flow, ripple, rise, fall, undulate and feel buoyant. I can't keep a smile off my face through this routine - it's pure bliss and charges me with love from the inside out.

I am teaching Deep Dive all week in preparation for the two-hour workshop on Monday, February 20 (still spots open so please join us!).  Come play this week!

Dancing Through Change: A Tarot Workshop with
The Wheel of Fortune Card

Date: Saturday, February 25, 2017
11:00am – 5:00pm
Location: Embrace the Moon School for Taijiquan & Qigong,

When we know how to dance with change, we are able to hold our center as things in our lives rise and fall, expand and contract, and decay and grow.

In the tarot, the Wheel of Fortune card is the archetype of the wheel of life. It represents the inevitable changes we will experience across our lifespan.

During this workshop we will use tarot, movement, meditation and music to explore ways we can stay centered amidst change.

All are welcome! No tarot or dance experience is required. Tarot decks will be provided for use during the workshop.

I am looking forward to dancing with you all in the week ahead!
