We are all just seashells...

We are all just sacred seashells in the great ocean of abundance. Feeling the push and pull of the water that ultimately guides us to swirl our heart forth in trust, flow and inspiration to ride the waves and thus bringing us back home to a place of peace within our heart.

Sewing our dreaming seeds for a beautiful Spring

I was fortunate enough to take a trip to Victoria this past weekend for some soul-time with the lovely friend and this is what ignited our hearts and smiles! It was January 31st and the beautiful mother is starting to sprout and bloom!
What a gift to feel that Spring is on its way and that life is what we make of it.
What seeds are you sewing to nourish your own life to bloom and blossom? In your health? In your relationships? In your ability to follow your dreams (because yes, those dream ARE possible!)? With some soil and nutrients (our passion), water (our trust & love) and sunlight (our inspired-action) we can sprinkle those seeds everywhere and love them into being!

Kundalini Dance ~ Illuminating Your Spirit ~ 8 week series

***Early-Bird rate sale now***

Want to move your body and invigorate your soul? Let go of limitations that you feel hold you down or keep you playing small? Feel yourself expand with courage, creativity, and possibility and let yourself step into the fullness that you are. 

Join us and dive within....

Dance your soul awake and feel clarity and openness as you ignite and align your chakras to your highest potential and limitless possibility.

Kundalini Dance™ is a sacred tantric practice where you can authentically express your body and soul through movement, breath and sound. Each dance becomes a transformational process of deeper presence, self-healing and ultimate possibility.

This soulful practice allows you to commune deeply with yourself and the divinities that infuse your world. Shakti, the Divine Feminine, inspires you to feel, express, and create as she rises upwards to merge with the Divine Masculine, Shiva, expanding light, truth and love deeply in your heart.

Connect with your inner-being and energize your spirit to purify your body, awaken the wisdom within and open fully as love.

Over the eight-week series you will journey deep into the chakras. Learn how to clear and regenerate your luminous energy system while communing with a compassionate community that supports and encourages your authentic expression. Kundalini Dance will:
~Purify stagnant emotional energy
~Reclaim your power & truth while gaining insight & clarity
~Open your body as love
~Awaken higher consciousness
~Integrate positive life change

This is the journey back home to your body’s wisdom and heart.

Thank you Martine.” Baljit Rayat Lotus Destiny

Paolo Nutini ~ Iron Sky



We are proud individuals living on the city,
But the flames couldn’t go much higher.
We find God and religions to,
To paint us with salvation.
But no one,
No nobody,
Can give you the power,

To rise over love,
And over hate,
Through this iron sky,
That’s fast becoming our minds.
Over fear and into freedom.

Oh, that’s life
That’s dripping down the walls
Of a dream that cannot breathe
In this harsh reality
Mass confusion spoon fed to the blind
Serves now to define our cold society

From which we’ll rise over love,
Over hate,
From this iron sky,
That’s fast becoming our minds.
Over fear and into freedom.

You just got to hold on!
You just got to hold on!

Ohhh ohhhh oh oh

(To those who can hear me, I say, do not despair.
The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed,
the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress.
The hate of men will pass, and dictators die,
and the power they took from the people will return to the people.
And so long as men die, liberty will never perish.
Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men –
machine men with machine minds and machine hearts!
You are not machines, you are not cattle, you are men!
You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful,
to make this life a wonderful adventure
Let us use that power!
Let us all unite!)

And we’ll rise over love,
And over hate,
Through this iron sky,
That’s fast becoming our minds
Over fear,
Into freedom.
Into freedom!

From which we’ll rise over love,
And over hate,
Through this iron sky,
That’s fast becoming our minds.
Over fear and into freedom.

Rain on me!
Rain on me!
Rain on me!

We Have Come To Be Danced

A poem by Jewel Mathieson

We have come to be danced
not the pretty dance
not the pretty pretty, pick me, pick me dance
but the claw our way back into the belly
of the sacred, sensual animal dance
the unhinged, unplugged, cat is out of its box dance
the holding the precious moment in the palms
of our hands and feet dance
We have come to be danced
not the jiffy booby, shake your booty for him dance
but the wring the sadness from our skin dance
the blow the chip off our shoulder dance
the slap the apology from our posture dance
We have come to be danced
not the monkey see, monkey do dance
one, two dance like you
one two three, dance like me dance
but the grave robber, tomb stalker
tearing scabs & scars open dance
the rub the rhythm raw against our souls dance
WE have come to be danced
not the nice invisible, self conscious shuffle
but the matted hair flying, voodoo mama
shaman shakin’ ancient bones dance
the strip us from our casings, return our wings
sharpen our claws & tongues dance
the shed dead cells and slip into
the luminous skin of love dance
We have come to be danced
not the hold our breath and wallow in the shallow end of the floor dance
but the meeting of the trinity: the body, breath & beat dance
the shout hallelujah from the top of our thighs dance
the mother may I?
yes you may take 10 giant leaps dance
the Olly Olly Oxen Free Free Free dance
the everyone can come to our heaven dance
We have come to be danced
where the kingdom’s collide
in the cathedral of flesh
to burn back into the light
to unravel, to play, to fly, to pray
to root in skin sanctuary
We have come to be danced

Solstice Blessings

Solstice Blessings for a heartcore that radiates divine love, 
warmth that transforms and aligns with connection and freedom, 
rays that shine toward a bright filled future of abundance, 
leading the path for us to claim it and fill our cells. 
Soak it up. 
It is all there to be admired, 
to be felt, 
to be integrated within.
