Hello Conscious Dance Community-
The COVID 19 crisis has awakened, in my community and across the globe, an unprecedented call to heal and create.
In the last two weeks, my world has both shrank and expanded far beyond anything I could have imagined.

Notice how your body responds in this guided experience.

Restore CALM and regain a sense of GROUNDING, in the midst of anything and everything during this trying time across the globe, in this 6 minute guided meditation.
