Discover your body's natural intelligence ... for optimal health, fitness, and well-being.
Body Mind Well-Being cultivates individual potential by:
increasing embodied awareness
experiencing the body's natural intelligence
enhancing body-mind integration
In my early career as a dancer, I was enthralled by creative enterprise, optimal health, and living a fully embodied life. In fact, throughout my life these elements have formed the foundation of all my endeavors.
I trained as a facilitator for an outdoor adventure course (Ropes Course) located at an adolescent, residential drug and alcohol treatment center. This work combined movement, play, and the outdoors – all passions of mine. Eventually I facilitated many diverse groups through the course, including therapeutic, civic, educational, and corporate groups.
The corporate work inspired me to explore methods to more fully integrate "life" and "work". I moved on to work with an international experiential learning company at various Ropes Course locations throughout the United States and the Caribbean.
With this experience, I developed a body/movement based "adventure" course that could travel anywhere, including directly into the workplace. It used each participant's primary tool – their own body.
I continued my education with graduate studies at Naropa University to gain a more comprehensive understanding of Body-Mind Psychotherapy and Dance Movement Therapy. I found that therapeutic work, optimal health, and personal/organizational development share a common goal – growth and aliveness.
