 “Most people pretend to be happy, because that’s what you’re supposed to be; it’s the acceptable state of being.” ~ Gabrielle Roth, Maps to Ecstasy

Joy is the natural result of allowing fear, anger, and sadness to be completely felt and fully expressed. How much joy can you tolerate? I’m curious of this. . . . I feel us being afraid of our joy. Perhaps the answer for us each depends on how much fear, anger, and sadness we can tolerate. When deeply embodied, the rise and delight of existence is unmistakable, an experience of ecstatic glee . . . . Join me for a day of exploring joy through movement, dance, and rhythm. We will expand our emotional range and tap into a felt sense of how this emotion moves in our bodies and lives.

Join us as we embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing. Secure your place today and take the first step towards fostering a more compassionate relationship with your emotions.

Drop In


In Heartbeat we explore our emotions as energy, as power, as part of being human. Old feelings that have been locked in our limbs or caged in our chest begin to shake loose. We get comfortable with feelings, neither hanging onto them nor pushing them away.
