PAST WORKSHOPS

#ICANTKEEPQUIET - A Movement Workshop + Fundraiser for the ATIRA Women's Resource Society

 

The inspiration for this gathering was ignited by THIS song.
Written by Connie Lim aka MILCK, 'Quiet' was first performed acapella at the Women's March in early 2017. 


It is important that we dance to this song.

So what has gone QUIET within you that needs to be expressed, released, claimed, loved back to light?

Collapse old boundaries that have kept your truth hidden. Use movement to speak with your body about what has gone QUIET within you and what must be loved to back to light.

This 2-hour workshop will teach you how to give "voice," life, and liberation to the stories you have stored up, to the ancestral codes you carry. Come.

By donation. All proceeds will go to support ATIRA.
