Conscious Dance Facilitator, Holistic Healer
Enrolling in the Dance as Medicine Facilitator Training was an investment in myself and my gifts to the world.
This course is a powerful blend of personal healing work and skill development. I was consistently learning about myself while gaining the confidence to offer ecstatic dance as a healing modality to others.
Ecstatic dance is a pillar of my personal holistic health practice, as well as one of my sacred offerings to my community. I didn't know where this journey would take me and two years later I'm so thankful I said yes!
I remain in gratitude to Hope for her vision, guidance and mentorship in this art of healing.
Founder of BassBurn Dance Fit
In 2015 I graduated from a deep dive Ecstatic Dance Facilitator training with Ekstasis Dance. It was the information, experience and loving nudge towards the growth that I absolutely needed - not only for my own personal life as a therapy to get out of a very dark place at the time, but also professionally as a dance guide, teacher, facilitator and space holder.
It is very thorough and also fun. I highly recommend it and encourage anyone reading this to take a look and see if it calls you.
Yoga Instructor, Movement Facilitator, BCST
I've trained with Hope. My time with her has been transformational. She is a deeply rooted guide and she is genuinely dedicated to fostering your own gifts. I always felt safe, seen and held in my process/development.
Embodiment Guide, Vibrant Embodiment
This training has changed my life.
I feel aligned with my soul purpose and feel confident that I have what it takes to hold sacred space and offer dance as medicine to others. Hope is a gifted facilitator and teacher, guiding from a place of love, confidence and compassion while supporting her students to embrace their own unique gifts and wisdom.
Her 20+ years of experience shows as she offers deep knowledge on this spiritual practice and facilitates transformational dance journeys.
I highly recommend this training to anyone seeking to deepen their mind + body + spirit connection through movement and offer this out into the world.
Thank you immensely Hope!
Conscious Dance Facilitator
I took the Dance as Medicine Facilitator Training because I wanted to learn how to facilitate conscious dance classes, as a conscious dance practitioner I had gotten lots of benefits from dancing and wanted to share it with the world.
I really enjoyed every part of the training, I realised there is lots of learn and to practice but I always was motivated to keep learning. I am looking forward to finish the training and I feel confident enough to start teaching classes.
I learned a lot about conscious dance, music, movement, emotions and I felt part of a loving community of women, sisters that gathered together and I learn as much from then as from the teacher.
If you are on the fence about taking this training, connect with your heart and do what feels right to you
One of my biggest life challenges before I started the training was developing a connection to self – soul, body, emotions, spirituality. It made me feel disconnected, numb, lost and empty.
Everything changed after attending the training. I awoke to who I am and the magic and power that exists within and all around me.
I experienced a deeper understanding of earth-based spirituality, an ability to feel my emotions and heal them by moving them through my body, and skills to keep me grounded and connected to myself and better able to track the shifts and changes.
If you like to dance, if you feel disconnected from yourself and the spiritual realm, if you want to change yourself to better help change the world, then this course is most definitely for you!
This course gave me a framework for life!”
