Testimonials-

Trinity leads this outrageously fun facilitated dance celebration with all of her heart, passion, power, and love. By the end, I always feel completely connected with myself and everyone in the room- a deep sense of community is created. It is a profound experience. Doug Larson

I feel like this is the best time I've had in a while! I came in not knowing what to expect. I left feeling empowered, light, open, centered and free. A lot of things surfaced for me in a wonderful way. I now feel closer to my heart. Thank you! Melissa D.
