Music & Other Gems Jun 11-14, 2018 – Falling or Flying

This is one of my favorite lines from Sophie B. Hawkins’ 1994 song, As I Lay Me Down but this week, I want the people in the song to breathe more and feel their energy and excitement. Rather than barely breathing, I wish for them lots and lots of breath. Maybe that way, it would feel less like falling in love and more like flying into love.

You can find this week’s Falling or Flying playlists below. If you’d like to listen to them, you can find almost all the music on Spotify where you can listen for free! Please let me know if you have any questions about any of the music we dance to!

But first, here are some things I know you want to know about:

FREE 3-Part video training series from Cecily Armstrong
For the past several months, Cecily Armstrong has been helping me on a healing process that has changed my relationship with food, my body, and myself. Her work has helped me get a deeper understanding of nutrition and intuitive connection to what my body-self really needs and wants. She is deeply grounded in the science of nutrition as well as energy healing and other healing modalities. Now she is offering a 3-part training series called: Decoding your body’s wisdom; Stop second-guessing what to do with your diet to look and feel amazing. Please follow this link to get access to all three videos! If this resonates even a little, please do this for yourself.

Join Susan McCulley, Jeanne Catherine Gray, Mary Linn Bergstrom, and Kate Aust for a very special Nia Love Jam! Our friend and fellow Nia teacher Antje Waxman lost her husband Ken in January after a long illness.
