Intro to Authenticity in Movement for Women - 8 week committed series

In this 8 week committed series for Women, we explore the “movement in depth” practice of Authenticity in Movement.  In this introductory series, we will learn to listen to and follow our authentic movement impulses.

We will invite ourselves into a more relaxed, liberated state of presence and being.

Turning Towards Grief: A Workshop to Summon Courage to Live Fully Alive in Turbulent Times

Turning Towards Grief: A Workshop to Summon Courage to Live Fully Alive in Turbulent Times

We live in unprecedented times. In this workshop, we co-create a brave space, a sound container in which to meet grief and develop an ongoing relationship with it.  We will explore grief as a fractal experience, tending to both the macrocosm of our grief for the state of the earth and world and the microcosm, our own personal losses. From this place of allowing our hearts to break open, we have more access to joy, love and vibrancy.

Healing Retreat for Women* Survivors of Childhood Sexual Trauma

to Jan 26

Healing Retreat for Women* Survivors of Childhood Sexual Trauma

Co-Facilitated by Marisa Taborga Byrne, Katie Spataro, and Kari Stettler (for bios, click here)

This retreat has an early Registration Deadline of September 20, 2019

Within the context of growing awareness and action in our social world around sexual trauma, this is a time for survivors to unite and together undo the effects of trauma on the body, mind and spirit. 

Along the path of healing/wholing lies an unraveling of the pervasiveness of silence and shame, and the need for sacred spaces for connecting with others, grieving, and being held and witnessed within community. This heart-centered retreat will be held by the nurturing grounds of Dancing Deer as we believe in the healing that happens with connection to the land as well as with others.

The intention of this retreat is to create a safe space for honoring and expressing fullness in the context of a small group of survivors. The retreat will include a variety of modalities to explore how these childhood experiences are held in the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of self and offers opportunities for release, clearing and healing through talking circles, movement, visualization, singing, a grief ritual, and quiet integration time. Participants will have the opportunity to be honored and witnessed in their individual experience while being held within the container of the group.
