Intentional. Intuitive. Empathetic. Playful.
Accepting. Heart-felt. Attuned. Passionate. Mind-Body-Spirit connected.
You know when you hear that music – that song – the one your body can’t help but move to? One of those rare experiences where the sensation inside drives you to move, to close your eyes and move your limbs, to let go and dance like nobody’s watching. All of you – mind-body- spirit move in oneness in this dance. Emotions rise up and out through the dance – pain, sorrow, fear, anger, joy. As the song quiets and you still yourself, you are empty of ick and full of peace. It’s gonna be ok. You are ok. You are more than ok – you are Alive. You are Survivor. Warrior. Dancer. Dreamer. Indescribable Wonder. Lyndsay’s accepting and gentle presence gives you permission to feel all that is within – to express it – to embrace it – to let it go. She sees you – Sawubona. Yes. Yes. Yes.
