The Workshop

The "i" that "you" are and the "we" that come together and dance are ever changing energy bodies, that began as Seed and will end as Dust. 

Energy incarnate, bodies are vehicles that move the Soul.  Gabrielle regarded them as the ground metaphor of our life.  In their fluidity through space, time, emotion, thought and story there is nothing solid about them except the labels we assign and cling to. 

Come and dance at this workshop to loosen the hold of what you pretend to be and reclaim the courage to simply be what you are as it arises.

Energy moves in waves.
Waves move in patterns.
Patterns move in rhythms.
A human being is just that
energy, waves, patterns, rhythms.
Nothing more. Nothing less.
A dance.

There are numerous hotels and B&B's in the DC area, but we also offer dancers the opportunity to stay with members of the DC Tribe. For home stays, each guest pays $15 per night.  This fee goes to Ann, which in turn comes off your host's tuition for this workshop.  The energy exchange is taken care of, so no need to bring a gift or take them out for dinner!

If you would like housing please request in the EventBrite Registration Form.
