Committed Groups

Committed Groups allow time to nurture depth and safety, which support a shared culture of increasing honesty, vulnerability and playfulness. These ongoing groups re-enroll twice a year. Members often continue for multiple cycles, or take breaks and return again. With each cycle we often have space to welcome new group members.
Authentic Movement Groups offer opportunities to learn from and be supported by others, and to practice being true to one’s self while in community. Together we uncover surprises, develop new perspectives on habitual roles, and find inspiration amid the mysterious unfolding of our collective consciousness.
Body Tales Groups are bonding, affirming, and beneficial for both those who are comfortable moving and speaking in front of others, and for those newly seeking a safe place to explore being seen. Together we discover embodied personal and cultural stories, create movement theater from our real lives, and celebrate and strengthen our sustaining values.
