Neshamah In Motion workshops: 
Personal Growth with Movement and Jewish Spirituality

Warm greetings! Neshamah means soul in Hebrew. The workshops offer a guided movement journey that weaves together conscious freestyle dance, dance therapy tools, music, and Jewish Spirituality. 

There are no prescribed steps for our dance; instead, we are invited to listen to our bodies and allow the movements to unfold from within.

The workshops offer space to connect with one's body; explore Jewish spirituality in embodied ways, including experiencing the Divine within and beyond as a felt experience in the body; dance and be in a supportive community of other movers.

Upcoming workshops

The workshops offer a guided movement journey tailored to the special time of the High Holidays to:

Reconnect with the home of you body, 
Reconnect with the radiance and wholeness of the Soul/Self and the Source of Life,
Use dance and movement to let go of what is no longer serving you and step into what you are cultivating and creating at this special time,
Listen through the body to the wisdom within,
Be in a supportive community of other movers. 

Jewish spirituality (prayer and imagery) is woven in to inspire an embodied connection with the voice of the soul and with the Great Mystery we are a part of.
