Transformational Dance
Greetings! First of all, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all who come across our dance, no matter where you are on your life journey. I came across this beautiful community a couple of years ago as someone who was in the chaotic process of saying goodbye to the past and transitioning into the new. By committing to the weekly dance, I received the nourishment to be open and trusting to where the great dance of life was taking me. I began to see how I transformed through the very act of dancing my story on the beautiful wooden floors of the dance hall. Now a couple of years later, I am honored to be the facilitator and teacher of this astonishing, surprising and authentic community of souls. I am so proud to witness our growth. This practice is ancient, magical and personal. It is a dance that calls for authenticity, vulnerability and expression, all held in a safe and sacred container. It is about allowing your life to be as it is. It is about receiving, dropping the mental chatter and discovering again and again the ecstasy of connecting with the Infinite in community. All you have to do is show up as you are and be exactly who you are created to be. No expectations, only to dance your unique dance, one that is underneath all the shoulds and should nots, one that comes forth from the light of the soul. Come and be a receive nourishment for your journey. I hope to see you on the dance floor soon. ~ Mary Marjorie Bethea Some guidelines: Doors open at 6:45. Practice begins with a warm-up.

What we're about

This is transformational work wherein we accept the invitation to truly embrace what is real in our
heart/mind/soul space through physical movement which allows us to find our true center and let go
what has become excess, baggage or habit.

This requires no background in movement or dance. Movement Meditation can be practiced by anyone
regardless of age, size or physical ability. We dance in the body we have. Just be willing to show up
and bring a sense of humor and a bit of compassion along as well...for yourself.
