Participants are invited to explore alone and together, through stillness, free form movement and facilitated inquiries, eclectic music and silence. The lens of Soul MotionTM practice with a taste of Sol Vida will develop a pathway to freedom for self and collective expression.

We take time to build a container that invites us to learn somatic tools, expand the capacity within us to embody the truth of our ancestors, and reframe our future, infused with the wisdom of our bodies and souls in motion.

Let the richness of our histories, with all its brilliance and suffering, inform our dance and abilities to grow new seeds of resilience and weave a fabric of new possibilities.

As people of color, we rarely get a chance to rest together, breathe together, move together, or dream together.

We will co-create a safe space where we pay attention, pray and play, and practice cultivating a judgment-free environment with the idea that “it’s not about how it looks. It’s about how it feels.”

Participants will be required to attend the entire duration of the workshop. NO late arrivals, early departures or partial attendance.

This workshop is offered at a special reduced rate for all who attend. There may be sponsorship available pending financial support from white allies. If you would like to be a sponsor or a potential recipient of sponsorship, please contact Beth at assistant.dance.sanctuary@gmail.com.

All are welcome… beginners and dance devotees. All ages and all genders are encouraged to attend.
