Helpful Tips for Newcomers + Etiquette


Please understand embodiment is a practice- we recommend at least 4 classes before you will have an inkling of what might be happening. We have been practicing embodiment for over 25 years and are still in the landscape of discovery. Each class is uniquely different, some days we may fly blissfully into trance states on others we may wade through the molasses of our human condition. The offering  is to embody all of our humanity.
• Doors close 20mins after start of each class to create a safe held container.

• Payment accepted with cash and check only for Soho Dance LA.
• Maximum capacity for The Soho Dance class is 130 dancers. So arrive early.

• Please follow the instructions of the teachers as you might do with a yoga or salsa teacher.
• If you are new to this class it is natural to feel nervous. When we ask you to take a partner please do and know that we are here to develop boundary skills as much as freedom skills. Take your own authority as to what feels appropriate with each partner.

Shamanic Healing


Shamanic healing deals with the spiritual aspect of illness. A shamanic healer works to restore an individuals lost power or ‘soul essence’ which may have occurred through emotional or physical trauma such as accidents, surgery, shock, abuse or being in a natural disaster.

It is believed that whenever we suffer an emotional or physical trauma a part of our soul flees the body in order to survive the experience. The definition of soul that I am using is essence, life force, the part of our vitality that keeps us alive and thriving.

Soul loss can result in dissociation, post-traumatic stress syndrome, depression, illness, addictions or unending grief – preventing us from creating healthy relationships and the life we truly wish to live.

Classical shamanic healing techniques include soul retrieval, extraction methods, power animal retrieval, dealing with power loss and extensive work with the individual’s energy body.

The sessions are conducted in grace and beauty and involve healing song and instrument. All is conducted in relationship with the shamanic healers spirit kin and the client is imbibed with power, purpose and a true sense of themselves.

Unlike therapy you will only need to do this once or twice a year and the sessions last between  2 to 3 hours.
