We’re so happy to be holding our Community Dances on Zoom. Whether in our living room or out in the forest, dance is a lifeline, health line and soul line. So is gathering with each other.
In July & August, our schedule changes somewhat. Tuesdays and Thursdays, we'll start our day at 8:45am Pacific Daylight Time with a morning movement and dance practice. Each session is one hour long. We ask you please to pre-register for each dance that you plan to attend. Click the REGISTER & JOIN button for the easy sign-up page.
On Saturday and Sunday, the Zoom Room opens at 10:00am Pacific Daylight Time. The dance will go until 11am and at the end, there will be a 15 minute time for socializing, if you choose to stay.
We’re asking a $5-$20+ payment for each dance. Your generosity is appreciated as many of our teachers’ sole support is our dances. We also realize the current crisis affects everyone differently. No one will be turned away for inability to pay. We’d rather you come no matter what.

If anyone wrote the truth of their lives, they will have written a masterpiece. - Isadora Duncan
There’s something so magical about meeting regularly with a small group of friends and/or strangers to write together. For writers and non-writers alike, it’s easier to relax into a simple rhythm: writing, sharing, and listening. What comes through us is real, messy, touching, occasionally heartbreaking, and often hilarious. Over time I come to depend on the refuge of these brief, weekly gatherings.
I know in my bones that writing awakens the mind and connects hearts. Together we’ll practice writing swiftly enough to outrun our habitual censor. I'll offer up a poem, a single word, a wild headline, a song – the doorways to falling into our own creative stream are endless. We start to know each other beyond our polished selves.
Then we do it again.

“The only one who truly knows me is my tailor. He takes my measurements every time I see him.” …. Victor Hugo
In this weekly class, when we move with open and curious minds, commit to staying present in our bodies for whatever arises, we find the capacity to say "Yes" or "No" to the enormity of it all. In other words, we make room for what matters. This is the gift of Moving Meditation.
Although this is a drop-in class where anyone is welcome, we will be building upon a sequential theme each week. This will be an online community of practice; devoted movers taking time to inquire into the nature of how we move in this uncharted world. Dancing, verbal inquiry and sitting meditation will be the lenses we use.
I hope you will join me as we examine the power in paradox.
With love, kathy

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. - RALPH WALDO EMERSON
Energy Medicine is an ancient art form that helps balance our inner resources in order to manage our outer world. Especially at times like these, it’s lifesaving to have access to the support always waiting inside us.
Intuition and insight are learned skills, not special gifts. In this series we learn how to listen to and cooperate with unique, vital energy centers in our body. We focus on collecting intuitive data, discerning and interpreting our energetic patterns in order to make wise and clear choices.
Class practices will include: -Mindful movement -Focused instruction for accessing aspects of ourselves that create balance -Sitting meditation -Verbal inquiry practices
When we hone the art of mining our own physical and spiritual resources it benefits the collective pool. When we practice together, the pool widens and deepens.
