JULY 21-23, 2023

At the StarHouse, Boulder


With Melissa Michaels and the Golden Bridge Rhythm Keepers

This weekend will be a sweet return to the simple practice of bodies in motion with live music. It will be a time of study and delight.

All of us will be invited to deepen into our dances, liberate stuck energies, meet our own internal edges, source our creativity in unprecedented ways, and celebrate in community.

We will expand into the vast landscape of our souls through rigorous movement, a look in the mirror, and simple ceremony.

Together we will. . .

Remember. Resource. Release. Reset. And RISE.

Melissa Michaels, Ed.D., Soul midwife, educator, and artist, Melissa is the Founder/Director of Golden Bridge and Golden Girls Global — two not-for-profit initiatives dedicated to improving and empowering the lives of diverse people through body-centered initiatory experiences, mentoring, and community action. Her body of work includes the book, Youth on Fire: Birthing a Generation of Embodied Global Leaders; online moving journeys, including Thresholds; as well as her video narratives of resilient people and communities mobilizing around the world. Melissa’s award-winning film, Twisted Gift shares her dancing journey through late-stage ovarian cancer into health.

For the past 35 years, Melissa has been creating movement-based, cross-cultural educational opportunities to unleash the potential that is available at major life transitions. Her work somatically supports people as they navigate through the narrow passageways of these challenging times. This body of work grew from her decades of guiding diverse young people from self to soul to service through dance-based rites of passage experiences. More than 60 of these young people are now certified SomaSource leaders — activists, artists, healers, and educators — creating new ways to work within some of the most marginalized communities around the world.

Melissa is devoted to our collective sustainability through the liberation of the creative spirit.
