Welcome to the Hidden Monastery, a space that acknowledges
the Dance of Love & Grace in us all. 

Great Love is un-pin-downable. Yet, everything on Earth joins its wild dance. Since founding InterPlay, I’ve witnessed all types of people uncover healing medicine in body and soul when they dance, tell their stories, sing, play, and rest in stillness. Spiritual intelligence rises. Earth talks to us. We grow in creativity, clarity of purpose, and courage to love. 
If you’ve been guided here I welcome you to check out a Free Online Dance Chapel, the gifted and sensitive body workshop the Year-Long Course on the Art of Ensoulment that starts each January using the Self-Care Playbook for Mystics, artists and sensitives, and occasional retreats. I also offer short and long term coaching and spiritual direction. Email me directly if you like.
