Workshop (Oakland): Tuning in to Our Wild Women Nature w/ Sound Healing, Body Movement, & Self-Reflection

“The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious.
If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door.
If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door.
If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.”
-Women Who Run With the Wolves, Clarissa Pinkola Estes

 


Join us in a sacred women’s circle
off the beaten path, to tune in to the wild

and one another in community.

Fountainetta Coleman

Fountainetta has been a multi-instrumentalist and instructor of percussion throughout the Bay Area for twenty years.  Her deepest interest is fusing percussion, voice and movement in order to bring a fully embodied experience into artistic creation.  Through embodiment she seeks to impact and expand consciousness around wellness, and bring focus to how embodiment can lead us to a truly wholistic humane existence.  

With her studies in Sound, Voice and Music Healing (California Institute of Integral Studies), training in various movement styles (Maureen Haley Studios in San Jose and the Malonga Casquelord Center in Oakland), the deepest intention is how our embodiment can bring us INSPIRATION, joy, engagement and community. 

 

“Come with an open heart and spirit to be inspired,
disappointed, affirmed, confirmed, challenged, shifted in consciousness,
enlivened and lured into yourself.”
