After this last year of working and teaching abroad it has become all the more clear how much impact my work has on people's lives. While I hear this regularly from students in the states, teaching around the world opened my eyes to how fortunate we are in the US in so many ways. I am inspired now to bring this work to a broader audience and launch my work at a new level.
I am launching The EMBODYOLOGY Tour to bring my practice to people worldwide and help build their Communities through Dance, Vocal and Rhythmic expression. These classes/workshops are designed to help men and women break out of their limitations and step into their whole being, embodying their own unique expression and creativity. This work offers foundational transformation for people. I already have the framework set for the tour in 5 countries and I would like to reach as many people as possible on this journey.
I will begin this tour at the beginning of April in Australia.
In order to really do this work, I am asking for your support to get things in order for this tour, to take care of lingering health & dental issues. My goal is to bring these gifts to people while having the resources to keep myself whole and healthy.
So I am asking for support for the following:
*A ticket to Australia that leaves on March 31st $1700-$2000
I need to purchase this by March 21st.
*I need to take care of a couple of critical Dental issues that have needed attention for well over a year but are now threating my health, wellbeing and ability to give my total attention to my practice $2000
*The funds for transport, food/lodging and incidentals for at least 6 months $7000
*I also need to settle some personal debts from last years' travel expenses.
More information about my practice/work is presented below.
I truly appreciate your support! I choose to leave this world better and more embodied than when I found it. Your support here will go far in helping me to do that!
With Deep Gratitude
THE BIGGER STORY
A couple of months ago on the night before my 50th birthday, I was given the gift of realizing myself as an EMBODYOLOGIST - that what I do is get people into a deeper relationship with their bodies and their lives, past their stories and into the moment.... My work helps people be more present to themselves and therefore to each other and the world around them.
This happens by creating a deeper sense of embodiment, self empowerment, and self expression through the use of movement, sound and rhythm. We discover, reclaim, and cultivate our creative essence as we dance together, create vocal music together and explore together. We also delve into the relationship between pulse, beat, and rhythm. Much of this is done through classes, games, and interractive processes. When we are in relationship to the same pulse, we are in relationship to each other and community is created.
About age 8 or 9 a traumatic family experience had me decide that I would never dance again, especially in front of other people! 22 years later I finally broke through that story and began to move, to dance again. This was a huge reclaiming of myself. My jourey of self discovery in this body had begun. Next I discovered the drum! It was as if I remembered some part of myself long forgotten. Finally I began to rediscover my voice and its ability to truly speak, to sing, and to express my deep truth.
All of these pieces together evolved into Dance into Being, a workshop that, along with Nia, I have toured and taught for the past 11 Years. Some of the most incredible expereinces I've ever had have been in these workshops as I have witnessed people open and transform time and time again. Some of the places I have gone I have needed a translator to speak to my students, but once the work begins words become irrelevant as we transcend spoken language and arrive in a place where only authentic expression and creativity live. It is a beautiful place to experience, where all peoples and races and colors come together and create community, communication and magic!
I have been developing this work for over 15 years now. As incredible as it sounds, and it has been, I have also rarely made ends meet while doing it. Normally I borrow the money for airfare to get where I am going and a little extra for food etc. and usually I am able to pay it back once I return. This generally gets me back to zero balance, with me having had a wonderful experience in someplace I might not otherwise have ever visited and getting to spread my work. However this time, Launching the EMBODYOLOGY Tour I am choosing to do things differently! I choose to have this tour be generated from the Love of what I do and Creating from this place instead of spending most of my energy on how exctly I will survive, eat, and travel from one location to the next. I absolutely believe that we Light Workers can be supported for what we do while we make a beautiful difference in the world and that we all deserve to live our bliss.
I am clear about my divine work on the planet and I am constantly shown, and told, about how much difference this work makes. So many times I have been told things like "this work saves my life every time I do it" and "I have never expereinced this level of freedom before in my life".
Your support will help me live my passion and my life's mission with greater ease for the first time, as I continue to make a positive diference in the world!
