w/ Cacao + Sound Weaving + a Special Christmas Story
>> Cacao Ceremony // led by Dana Marie
>> Jes Lace // musical artist
Body & Soul is a movement ritual, a celebration of feminine self-expression and a community of women empowering women. Each month is a different fusion of music, meditation, yoga, storytelling and connection with artistic collaboration and, always, a full on dance party.
Let's be real. There are simply some things women cannot do - or be - underneath the fluorescent lights of an office building, in a gym or even in a yoga class.
And it's these parts of ourselves - the parts that are embodied, sensual, intuitive, that don't want to follow the rules, that want to be wild and free, that crave something "more" and deeper in our lives...
SHE is longing to tap into and viscerally inhabit her undeniable power as a woman and a creative force. She lives within you and needs a special space to play in the company of women.
"A woman has a soul need to express herself."
- Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Women Who Run With the Wolves
So the Body & Soul ritual is designed to give you permission to be yourself, bring you closer to like-spirited women and collectively to a higher place.
Each month in this growing community, we hear things like, "I've never felt so liberated in my body," "I found a part of myself that I lost" and "this feels like home."
You will be sure to leave with more confidence, energy, inspiration and real connections.
>> The December edition will be a very special holiday mixer with a chance to converse and mingle with one another before the break.
>> Heart-opening and enlivening cacao ceremony + sound weaving experience led by songstress Annie Anton and Jes Lace on the hang drum.
