JULY 21st – 26th, 2019

A dance-based transformational journey rooted in the arts of body, heart, and soul.

July 21 – 26, 2019
Surfing the Creative®
Annual Intergenerational Rite of Passage Program

A remix for some new and mostly seasoned movers of all ages & stages.

Dance. Connect. Create.

(At this time we have a waitlist for Surfing the Creative, however, please still apply. We will let you know if spaces open. Due to occasional challenges with visas and such, spaces sometimes do become available. Please feel free to join us for one of our other programs this summer, in particular, one of the gender quests. We still have openings in the Men’s and Queer programs. Thank you for your interest in our work.)


Our work together weaves somatic resourcing, creative expression, interpersonal bridging, and the natural world into a process that is both healing and awakening. The journey is life changing, inspiring grounding and vision, along with generating the capacity to bring one’s dreams into reality.

In these times of great potential and challenge on planet Earth, humanity is being invited to rise up and live with radical authenticity, aligning inner and outer truths for the well being of all. Surfing The Creative® is a time tested pathway for the reclamation of people’s unique and vital gifts. It is an invitation to move from addiction into action, from fragmentation into integration, from isolation into loving community.

  • Accessing the Wisdom of your Body

  • Opening to the Truth of your Heart

  • Strengthening your Interpersonal Communication

  • Aligning with the Bounty of Mother & Father

  • Liberating the Creative Wild Child

  • Discovering Pathways for Building Healthy Connections with Yourself, with the World, and with the Spirit Moving All of Life.

  • Remembering ever more fully your unique destiny and what your next steps will be in order to manifest that in our world community.
