Transformational Movement, Dance, and Ritual

A Women's Festival for Embodiment and Empowerment

Increase your ability to stay present in your body and find your true essence with Toni Bergins of JourneyDance, Rochelle Schieck of Qoya, and Parashakti of Dance of Liberation. This powerful collaboration of evolutionary soul transformation calls you to gather on the dance floor and remember the truth that lives deep in the wisdom of your body.

The path of the dancer is written in the bones; there are scriptures waiting to be read that reside inside your own skin. As you get out of your mind and into your body, you awaken intuition, power, and passion. Dare to live your life with fierce authenticity and put your unique gifts into action through the movement of your body to powerful music in a whole-hearted and conscious community of women.
