Bellydancing For Self-Care /
Working with us to create safe spaces for exploration of movement and emotions in our community, this is one of our favourite ways to pair up these often opposing parts of the self. But the true craft of these workshops lays not in the specific pairings, but in that it shows you a unique way of pairing up passions. Of being able to encompass the entirety of yourself – or at least more than one aspect. It is about collaboration on a multitude of levels.
The Trifecta have all had me fucked up more than once over job hunting. It feels terrible to start working somewhere just to quit a month later. I’ve been there. It’s normal that you’re not cut out for everything in the world.
My point is, it doesn’t harm you to believe in something. It can actually be greatly beneficial to open yourself up to something that may seem like a hoax.

I’ve always struggled to be my best. I think we all do. We’ve been told to push ourselves past limits and be surprised at all we can be and do. This isn’t untrue – I have pushed myself, and been pleasantly surprised at the results. There’s an ever growing definition in each of us of […]
For me, home is predictable. Home is where things have a place, and I know where that place is.
