Sanctuary - path of the heart

The Workshop

It is true, our bodies cannot lie. 

They are equipped with so much wisdom, that we sometimes shut down, numb out, block, deny or avoid . . . but the body’s message stays, the heart’s message stays.  Enduringly, they send their messages again and again:

This way, let this go. 
Notice what you love, notice what you feel. 
Have courage to share the depths inside you.

This New Year’s we will as a community go where we have not gone before.  Inside ourselves we will gather wisdom’s teachings and bring them out to light the way on our path.  We will draw forth the courage to be our truest selves - the courage to let go of what does not serve - the courage to walk toward that which we love, even when fear walks right beside us.

We will use ritual, dance, art, and sound bathing to get closer to the truth.

We will see more of what is there inside and bring what we find to this life we live . . . to walk toward fulfilling moments and fulfilling relationships with full presence and love.

Closer to compassion.
Closer to forgiveness.
Closer to courage.
Closer to healing.

The dance will light our way.

Sanctuary - path of the heart


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.
