"THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A GOOD LIFE AND A BAD LIFE IS HOW WELL YOU WALK THROUGH THE FIRE." ~ Carl jung

hearth /härTH/ noun – the floor of a fireplace. the area in front of a fireplace. used as a symbol of one’s home.

The nature of Radical Aliveness work is inherently responsive. The process itself will change based on who shows up – Think of it as a laboratory. Although I am holding the space, your needs, voice & intentions for signing up will impact how it evolves.

The space is alive.

I do not claim to know your exact path to feeling at home in your body & reclaiming your creative fire. If you are used to doing “healing” work by yourself & want to begin to take risks in relationship with others, this experiential space is for you. Magic happens when we come together. 

SOLO HEALING WORK CAN ONLY TAKE US SO FAR. WE NEED THE CONTAINMENT OF THE WHOLE TO TOUCH THE VASTNESS OF WHO WE ARE.

There are millions of years of evolutionary wisdom in your blood & bone and this SPACE is about stepping into it. WE WILL WORK WITH THE ENERGY OF FIRE AS A CO-COLLABORATOR ON OUR JOURNEY.

From this place, we can begin to step into the fire of life. Not with less fear or emotion but instead a deep trust in yourself to handle whatever life throws your way.

To me, that is HEARTH.

Join me for this quick n’ dirty journey into the fire.

What to expect:

– A laboratory space where you can explore new ways of being in a group setting

– Utilizing expressive modalities such as ritual, dance, movement, various embodiment practices, improvisation, role play, vocalization & art making

– Going beyond the story & into your body

– Exploring your impulses

– Creative prompts & somatic practices

– Integration prompts for practice between sessions for bringing our work together back into your life

What I hope you will walk away with:

– An increase in connection to your creative & sensual energies

– The capacity to approach yourself & others with a sense of curiosity

– Building trust with yourself & the ability to speak what is true for you

– A sense of ease & camaraderie in your body

– An ability to sit with discomfort & the potential of relational encounters

– Tools to meet whatever is happening in your life at any given moment
