Designed for creative types, this online work provides a "chrysalis," or container for growth, to accompany and guide you into change. There's very little help in our light-speed culture for the internal reflection and very real labor required to grow ourselves. Research has shown the power of regular dips into mindfulness to catalyze major mental shifts. So if you intuit some shift is imminent, or you are primed for expansion, this course provides a concrete, efficient structure. 6-minute video teachings offer practical gems from different wisdom traditions, prompts for reflection, snippets of poetry, guided meditations, self-care tips, and fresh techniques to export into everyday life. The progression is carefully designed to move from the internal cocoon in which to connect with your center, to the proverbial wing-strengthening required to take new patterns and skills out into the world, to breaking out as new. You have the freedom to choose your own pace, with the option to add the companion course, a grab-bag of meditation techniques. Check out the introductory video today!

This course brings together her academic teaching with her work this last decade, teaching poetry through movement.
