FACILITATOR TRAINING RAVES
"‘The Dancing Freedom training opened my heart to fully accept myself in ways I wasn’t capable of on my own. The group container offered a safety and love that allowed me to step into my vulnerability in ways that I had never allowed myself to do before. I feel that the range of emotions I am able to experience has expanded through movement, group sharing, and support.
As I saw others grow, change, and open their hearts, I was able to tap into parts of myself and my experience that had never been named or discussed before. Dancing Freedom empowered me to explore and appreciate the full range of human emotion and the many levels of connection we have with each other, all animals, plants, and the earth."
- Eliza S.
FACILITATOR TRAINING RAVES
'‘For the first time in my life I feel that I have the possibility and the inner and outer tools, to start sharing what I truly treasure and believe in with my community: a dimension of embodied awakening where authenticity, growth, connection, love, compassion, full expression of body*mind*soul, joy and celebration, prayer, nourishment, co-creation, creativity, aliveness and freedom can happen.
I feel more adult and more ready to take action and responsibility, I feel a readiness (which includes embracing my fears and my vulnerability) to step into the bigger me. I feel that trust keeps growing within me and in the ways I interact with the worlds, visible and invisible. It’s nourished as I open up to prayer and Godliness and as I interact with the physical world, nature and people with an open and curious heart.
I came out of the training with an expanded heart, feeling a greater capacity to love, feeling a true love for people and an authentic desire to share this BIG LOVE and beauty. Today, I feel I’m more here, more fully adult as a woman, I deserve to be born in this world and to shine my light, I truly believe that’s the only way I can help others shine their light too.’'

"I came into this training knowing that I wanted to facilitate dance, but lacking a form that I trusted, and also not thinking of myself as qualified. I came out of this training with an experiential knowing of Dancing Freedom, feeling qualified to teach, and with a wealth of gifts I never could have anticipated. I’ve gone from waiting to live my passion, to living it. All-in-all, it was better than imagined."
