MISSION STATEMENT 

Our mission in the foundation of the Ritual Movement Arts Womens Mystery School of dance & ritual, is focusing creating sacred spaces, while applying ancient techniques that awaken  embodiment, energy & archetypal magick. In sisterhood when allowed to share your authentic gifts & witness anothers we share in the remembering the ancient practices that connect to ones own essence and cultivate enjoyment of our body temples.  

We join together in motion while sharing in a community of sisterhood. I have created workshops & retreats that combine the elements of Yoga & Sacred dance creating an empowered practice to harmonize the body & the mind in a creative and fun environment to honor each individual’s personal transformative power. Intentional movement gives us a vehicle to move out of our heads and into hearts and bodies. We can then experience our authentic feelings; both our dark and light selves. This enables practitioners to attain awareness and inner stillness in motion.  

“As the goddess is honored through ecstatic dance, our communities grow stronger. As we dance, we consecrate our bodies and the land on which we dance, we unite."
