but first…

I read this poem yesterday and loved it , wanted to share it with you today….


I am a dangerous woman…

Infinitely compassionate and wildly loving.

Softly strong and strongly soft in my ways.

Don’t get to close, you may see dreams come true and wishes appear from thin air.

I am a dangerous woman…….

Able to give unconditional love from an endless well within.

Blindingly bright ~ I will continue to shine until the stars fade from the heavens.

For God’s sake, don’t give me your heart, I might show you what it’s for and how to use it.

I am a dangerous woman……

Capable and real.

Genuine and wise.

Whatever you do, don’t tell me your secrets, I will keep them.

I am a dangerous woman…….

Gently staunch in my defense of family, friends and home.Crazy in love with my life.

Don’t expose me to your children, I may teach them something of value.

I am a dangerous woman………

Reveling in my sensuality.

Enjoying all the pleasures of being female.

Stay away from me if a lover that is both your equal and your joy is what you seek.

I am all that I am meant to be.

If this means danger then……

I AM a dangerous woman.

– Jennifer Farley

Oh yeah… what fun we will have together…

 Using all of what these outstanding women have come together to share with you in The Tribal Quest Experience,  let’s spend the next six weeks, grooving and honoring our fabulous selves. And they want you to be your freakin’ best, stepping it up–right now, right here. They have tools to share with you, for wellness in body, mind, and spirit.

 ~~~~~~Who and What am I bringing to you, on our Tribal Quest?

 Well, first, you got me!

        **Paulette Rees-Denis, your Tribal Hostess, and the innovator of Tribal Bellydance. I am your inspirator, I want you to move and enjoy your body, your rhythm, and the joy of the dance- to feel gorgeous, fit, in sync with yourself, to be potent and feel happy to be alive! Plus add writing to your movement and we reach in deeper to get to your core expression… oh yea…

*Cinzia DiCioccio, a dancer from Italy, and a member in Gypsy Caravan Dance Company, is a yoga and dance instructor, and has danced with me for many years. In this series she  gives us several lovely yoga workouts–The Sun and The Moon Salutations, with breathing and meditation techniques, plus we show you how to play the  zils (finger cymbals) with several patterns with you to learn and practice with us.

*Tami Lynn Kent, author and body worker, has a powerful take on our female bodies and how to stay connected with our selves and our creativity. Watch her interview, and let’s get out our journals for some writing exercises.

*Sarah Rose Jarolimek, an energetic fitness instructor, shares some fun strength training and fitness workouts with a dancer’s sensibility.

*Cristi Nicholson, a nutrition coach, has good tips for us dancers and how to take care of our bodies, plus adds in some delicious recipes for you to try.

*Karen Hunt, a dancer in Gypsy Caravan Dance Company for many years, assists me in some Tribal bellydance classes for you to dance and drill with us!

~~~~~~~How do the weekly sessions work?

 First of all, it is all online. What that means is that you get to do it on your own time, morning, afternoon, evening, middle of the night (!) whenever works for you. And because there are different sections, some short and some longer ( 5-30 minutes) you can fit them into your schedule when you are ready. No pressure, no lateness, just do the exercises as often as you can. Gotta love that!

 Once a week, I send you an email, full of all the goodness, with a PDF to download, with instructions of course, plus MP3s to download, and video links (on Vimeo) with secret passwords (because this is a private group class, not intended to be passed around please). You can join our secret Facebook group to meet everyone and share as much or as little of your experiences as you desire. And you have the whole week to get through the items sent, as many times as you want!

~~~~~~What you will need for this course?

Your computer and the ability to download PDFs, and MP3s, plus watch videos on Vimeo (with a secret password), We will also have a secret Facebook page to meet each other and share our experiences, so if you desire to meet up with the group, I need you to friend me on Facebook and give me your facebook name. Community involvement and support is way cool, and so tribal!…

PURCHASE: Wild Feminine, the book by Tami Lynn Kent, will be referred to, so I suggest buying it from, here  —

 You will want a journal and pen to write in, a space just for you to read, write, meditate in, a larger space to workout, do yoga, and dance, plus you need to have a pair of finger cymbals (or zils) ready to go… (some of you may not want to learn this skill used in most styles of bellydance, but they sure are a blast to play!).

Places online to buy Zils

Saroyan Cymbals

Turquoise Int.

 And of course you will want to get in your kitchen to try out some of Cristi’s recipes!


Whew… sounds awesome, eh?

so my creative beauties….have a most fabulous weekend….

thanks for being here….
