for me, meditation is about choosing to take time and space to enter into a state of presence with being. it is a gentle and courageous act of willingness to become aware of my own inner realms. i started consciously meditating over a decade ago, as i began to explore my spiritual connection. as i sat in meditation, i realized much of my life had naturally been lived in this state of presence. as i have now chosen to deepen my meditative state, my overall sense of presence and awareness has become amplified, in a very subtle and gentle way. walking and sitting in nature is one of my favourite ways to meditate. while amongst the natural elements, i can easily catch myself when the mind wanders too far into the future or the past, and come back to the here and now. often it is through a stumble, trip or slip that i am signalled to come back to the present moment. meditation is one of the ways i regulate my nervous system, allowing it ample time and space to be in a restful, restorative, receptive state. i choose to share my meditation practice with others as a gift to humanity and a gift to the Earth. it is within my pliable and flexible beliefs that the more aware and present each one of us can become, while having access to simple tools to invoke a state of calm, the more we can contribute wellness to each other and our home, the Earth. i value meditation as a personal and collective practice that has the potential to create great shifts within the many dynamics of the world. i give thanks and immense amounts of gratitude to all the people along the way who have helped me see inside myself to the innate gift of presence that pours so naturally out of my being.
i have been using dance as a means to get in touch with my inner being for the past 10 years. i have used free movement dance as a way to process deep grief, long held frustrations, and many other challenging emotions and life processes. when i first started delving into this form of personal therapy, i held a great amount of stiffness and rigidity in my body. my yearning to feel a sense of freedom within my own body, led me to places within myself that i didn’t know existed. being curious enough to delve into those places, helped liberate me in body, spirit and mind. choosing to shed my inhibitions around sober dancing has helped me gain a clearer understanding of who i am, on the other side of my fears and insecurities. i wish to share this with others, in the hopes that we can all continue to inspire each other to dance boldly and courageously through our lives, creating positive change and affecting radical shifts within our own lives as well as the greater societal structures within which we live. creating space and opportunities for people to connect with themselves, and their communities is one of my greatest passions.
it is a great joy of mine to create time & space for healing to take place. i work with people to help them allow this time & space to be present in their own lives. i believe it is important to find joyful ways to heal, so that healing can not only be a pro-active endeavour, but also something we look forward to engaging in. based on each clients specific needs & energetic pulls, i weave together a unique tapestry of exercises & activities, while also creating a framework of potential lifestyle shifts to help guide each person deeper into themselves as we practice the arts of de-conditioning & re-conditioning our beings. empowerment comes in many forms, and it always comes from within.
