Trauma, grief, and deep challenges are stories that are stuck and have forgotten how to dance. Using Spirit-led creative media (writing, movement, music, and art), we will teach these stories to move again, toward new life. What is your vision of new life?

We all have experienced trauma in recent times and many of our lives have moved in unexpectedly difficult directions. Trauma work is difficult and rewarding. When we do the work, especially in community, new life comes that can bring us unexpected blessings. Through our five sessions, we will develop our stories, incorporating art and poetry. We will support each other to re-vision the story then invite it to move, using dance, movement, and music.
The work of four academicians/writers (Bessel Van der Kolk, Peter Levine, Stephen Porges - who endorsed this workshop - and John Calvi) will ground our experiential work throughout the weekend. We will engage with simple Spirit-led creative media to explore what the academicians and the spiritual healers mean when they tell us how to heal trauma. We will ask, "What is your story? Vision? What support do you need to move forward? How will we each get our needs met to move forward?" Through these steps we seek to free our stories and hear Spirit's plan for us. Come dance with us, with God and our community to build this new life together.
