JourneyDance™ is a gently guided free-form movement modality where you simply cannot do it wrong! It's emotional release, shamanic visualization, fun, funky wild expression and deep prayer all wrapped up in one. This experience brings self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-love using expressive movement, guided imagery, ritual, voice and affirmation. Our minds become clear, free and positive. Our bodies become peaceful, fluid, energized and powerful.
Dance is a therapeutic form of movement. It has the power to unleash healing and transformation while exploring the deeper connection with your body, cultivating self awareness and loving self-compassion. It weaves together the principles of somatic healing, mindfulness and creative expression as a powerful catalyst for personal growth and healing.
Stress and Anxiety Reduction:
Engaging in expressive dance and bodily movement triggers the release of your endorphins, your brain's natural feel-good chemicals. This process facilitates relaxation and diminishes your stress, fostering a profound sense of calm and well-being.
Self-Expression and Increased Creative Energy:
Through movement and dance, JourneyDance empowers you to authentically express your feelings and stories in an inherently creative way. By providing a supportive space for self-discovery and empowerment, the practice nurtures your deeper personal growth and you feel expanded energy.
JourneyDance emphasizes listening to the body, attuning to your physical sensations, and connecting with your emotions. By fostering a deeper mind-body connection, the practice brings you heightened self-awareness, increased embodiment, and a more integrated sense of presence.
Healing and Trauma Recovery Facilitation:
We now know that movement-based practices are supportive in trauma recovery. By promoting nervous system regulation, establishing a safe container for healing, and facilitating the reclamation of one's body, JourneyDance offers a powerful pathway to healing and transformation.
Enhancement of Emotional Well-Being:
Dancing stimulates the release of neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin, which play vital roles in elevating your mood, enhancing your self-esteem, and fortifying your emotional resilience. From releasing stuck emotions you leave with that feeling of emotional well-being and an increased capacity to navigate life's challenges.
JourneyDance™ calls us to heal, get physical, reconnect to our body, call on our inner resources and step into our highest potential.
All bodies are welcome. No dance experience necessary. Dress comfortably (workout clothes). Get ready to release, shake loose and let go!
