Live Online Conscious Dance Retreat
(Although participation during the whole event is encouraged, Melissa will teach Saturday, May 23rd, 8-10:30pm MST)
You are invited to join us for this deep dance…
It is an unprecedented moment in the history of our planet. The Covid-19 emergency will pass, but the choices we will make in the weeks and months to come will forever shape our lives and future.
We live at a time of great changes and, as we learn even more about our interconnectedness, we have an opportunity to actively pursue conscious collaboration.
This four-day retreat is focused on the theme of Transformation and is designed to explore the many ways we can respond to the current crisis and allow us to share our deepest emotions and inspirations with others around the world.
Melissa Michaels, Ed.D., creates movement-based events that support individuals and communities as they navigate their way through major life thresholds. Serving life crisis and life cycle transitions, her transformational work catalyzes inner and outer peace across borders of all kinds. Melissa developed Surfing The Creative, the first contemporary youth leadership rites of passage program rooted in dance. For three decades, she has engaged in the healing, initiating, educating, and mentoring of young people and the adults who serve them. Her classic book, Youth on fire: Birthing a Generation of Embodied Global Leaders, shares the story of the life-changing work she has done in settings ranging from college campuses to inner-city schools, from refugee settlements to the United Nations.
Through all of this, Melissa developed the SomaSource process and founded Golden Bridge, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving and empowering the lives of diverse people around the world. She is a first-generation teacher of the 5Rhythms®, a Fielding Scholar in Education, Leadership and Change, and a registered Somatic Movement Educator and Therapist.
Melissa is a social artist dedicated to our collective renewal through the liberation of the creative Spirit.
