Hello beautiful humans,
Michelle and I dive head first into trauma responses during COVID-19, honoring our human experience, honoring the experiences of others, and how she uses the art of dance to reconnect to her body and empower other women to become their own Dance Warrior.
We go deep, but take it light.
Connecting and conversing in the both/and.
This conversation is truly one I will hold in my heart as I hold such a deep respect for Michelle, her work, and how she shows up in this world.
