This week’s Dance First Member Insight  is brought to you by Temple Body Arts leader Sofiah Thom. Dance First members are sharing their insights and inspirations during this troubled time, as well as how they are coping. Plus links to live streams and online offerings for you.

Dear Conscious Dancer Tribe,

It has been such a joy to see so many facilitators pivot and take their work online! Everyone has truly pitched in to help continue to ripple your love for dance.

In these challenging times, we are certainly learning a new dance: the dance of constant surrender and trust in the unknown. I am grateful for my deep spiritual practice and, like Bamboo, my ability to tackle adversity.

I live in Costa Rica as the Creative Director and Co-founder of Danyasa Eco-Retreat. With the extent of COVID-19, we had to close our retreat with very little warning. I had just been getting ready to welcome my Temple Body Arts year-long students for their Spring Equinox Initiation! But as we know, plans change, and creativity is needed now more than ever. Instead of leading our Spring Equinox Initiation in Costa Rica, I am guiding a Temple Body Dance Journey via FB LIVE to our group!

I have been sharing my work online in some capacity now for 7 years. I had to learn how to get my message out to the world and how to reach more people before our retreat center, and I was well known.

And I am so grateful for all the experience I have gained over the years! There is power in sharing a transmission over video via sacred technology!

As I watch the old systems die, I recognize the gift of this pause and the broader global shift that comes with it. I believe we are being asked to slow down and listen to how we can show up for ourselves, our families and our communities right now. Its time to birth the new paradigm!

As I have been listening and asking, “How can I be of service at this time?” I received a clear vision of showing up. This has led me to develop and facilitate a virtual 21-day journey to encourage women to align and awaken their infinite potential.

Conscious dancers, now is our time to dance the world awake in a new way. Now is our chance to do things differently — because we have to! We must remember why we are here and make space for what lights us up and turns us on!

I feel more inspired than ever to share my gifts online and to support women in recognizing their creative potential.

Sisters, I would love for you to join me on this 21-Day Temple Body Tune-In Journey, beginning on April 16th.

Right now, I am offering this for only $21! The price will be going up each week until we begin!

With love,
