And how do you know which you would like? Videos, online classes, Collective Soul and Teacher Training certifications, workshops, tshirts, oh my…Let me help! I want to lay out the next few months for you so you, too, can get clearer, plan ahead for the next year, the 2015 coming at us sooner that we can take a deep breath it seems!

Do you have a thought? A goal? A desire? A dance dream? Want to teach? Write? Celebrate yourself and your friends? Dig in? Share? Let’s dive in together in the coming year! It is going to be so spectacular, I just know! and Tribal Rocks!

Dance and Desire Workshops

You may want my new workshops, Dance and Desire, using The Desire Map (Danielle LaPorte’s ingenious book and way to dive deep) that I am now a licensed facilitator for. How thrilling is that for both of us. These are life shattering, image changing words and ways to live your life to the sexiest, the fullest, the most creative you are and want to be. And using movement and dance to anchor it into the body, and celebrate ourselves. Just say YES!

Let’s get down to it, in it, feel it, write it, envision it, dance it, share it, listen in and shout it out, with our circle of women this weekend.
