Workshop Details

What would happen if we danced directly into the fires of life with unbridled grace? What if we dance ourselves completely open until pure knowing? What if we dance so deep into the fires that it is impossible for our spirit not to penetrate our flesh? Our life is a constant flux of the fires of Birth, Death, and Rebirth. Just as the Phoenix bird rose from its own ashes, we too can emerge from the depths of our fires alchemically forged and renewed.
This VitalDanza process connects us with our infinite capacity for transmutation and renewal, utilizing the archetypes of five primal fires of transformation expressed in movement, music, expression, ceremony, and community. The dances are channels through which to live the most pure and intense experience: of feeling alive, exploring your own intimacy, and revealing your unknown potential and gifts. Everyone can do it and everyone is welcome.


We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
