Cofounder of InterPlay, executive director of Body Wisdom, Inc, author and coach for body and soul at Mystic Tech, helping others to listen as deeply as possible for solutions and directions by unlocking the wisdom of the body for peace, community, fun, and health. Art, writings, keynotes, online teaching, and retreat and conference leadership.

I thought I’d share why i teach about being gifted and sensitive and why I believe it’s important for the present and future. More than self-care, the body wisdom of sensitives is rooted in world care.

Curious? I recommend Dr. Elaine Aron’s documentary, Sensitive, The Untold Story,  featuring Alanis Moriessette and chosen as one of 30 best documentaries available on Amazon


Intro Workshops coming up
Tuesday October 19th 10-
11:30 Pacific
or Thursday November 4th, 2-3:30 Pacific



One in five people is statistically more sensitive. We feel more, sense more, think more, and notice more. This is a gift of nature.


Earth has you in mind as part of the grand plan. The first step is to end the shame we feel for not fitting in.


Sensitivity, like gender, is not an option. In this minority we get” othered.” We hide our incredible gifts, the very medicine that Earth needs now. If you or someone you know might be a member of the “One-In-Five” Club” this workshop offers strategies that make sensitivity understandable, manageable and more fun. In this workshop, you get the 24-page intro to the Self-Care Playbook for Mystics and Sensitive Leaders.

  • You’re Not Sick, You’re Sensitive!
  • Recognizing the 1-in-5
  • How to Make Sensitivity More Fun
  • Playing with Initiations and the Nature of Life
  • How to Be Credentialed

Sensitives need mentors, community and tools to bring our art, wisdom, and consciousness into communities that need us.  That is why i created the Art of Ensoulment Year Long Course and self-care playbook for Mystics, Artists and Sensitives. Link here to learn more.



Workshop on Life Purpose

If you want support for your next steps this workshop offers that and more!

March 25th, 1pm–4:30 pm pacific
Online Workshop with Cynthia Winton-Henry

I love the magic that happens when we tune in to the poetry of purpose!  It’s alive in us all the time. The power to speak and align to our purpose can more deeply clarify and support self understanding and planning.  

Purpose is one of our key initiations because it isn’t the easiest thing. It’s our deepest longing.

In the booklet I’ll send from the Art of Ensoulment Self-Care Playbook, you’ll see the process that I uncovered in clarifying my own purpose. So many surprises.

This workshop offers the great advantage of being led and having witnesses who affirm your path.

Divining Life Purpose

Good news! You don’t need a mission statement to live from purpose.
The purpose of humanity is to create, play and rest.

However, to more deeply divine purpose gives you a certain ease and can accelerate your journey in magical, daily ways. It’s not about explaining anything. It’s like truing to your inner resonance for guidance.

In this workshop you will differentiate between gifts, calls and purpose and open the gate of poetic life to explore the Who, Where, and How of Purpose.

When hell breaks loose

I’ve staked my tent at the burning bush and the dark night of my tradition. I dwell in a Vast center, wary to get any closer.
I dance a tight wire between the stakes of religious anxiety and a calm so deep it can’t be of my own doing but some kind of inheritance.
An angel sits on my soul who can make it difficult to move. I must be taught the way of no escape.


Things are happening
Hell breaks loose,
guns get centerstage
Empathy is weaponized
Youth and Teachers scream STOP!
Opioids and cell phones run the world.
Walls or bridges? Walls or bridges?


At the same time
A Civil Rights icon shows up to play.
A Doctor on retreat cries for her own body.
Congregationalists break out in Dance.
It is the decade of Embodiment.


“The old will dream new dreams
The young shall see a mighty vision
In the day that Love has made
We will end our hateful division
Oh Joy shall come to the city streets
Our hearts with life together beat
The rich ones, poor ones shall bow down
to the children who shall lead us.
O People come and sing your song
Sing your song together
Joy shall come to this strange land
when we love each other.”


Is love enough? Justice is what love looks like in public says Cornel West
I journey in the culvert of powerlessness.
The water is only knee deep.
But, this dance is completely underground, invisible. 
No one can take this work away from me. I must do it.
There will be no more details to share for some time.


When horror and terror live one room away
It’s Hell for a body at home.
And for many bodies everywhere.
And yet bodies are rising, starving,
twitching to move everywhere I look.


Bodies are marching,
up in arms,
rocking loose from grey matter,
taking sides, singing too loud,
bursting forth with evolutionary fervor.
The body wants to move, to befriend, to heal!

I know the brain science for this.
I know the testaments and techniques.
This has nothing to do with that.
Knowing is just a way to map a territory.
What we have here is the earth working herself up.
Nature is paying us forward with birthright force.
Black lives, women lives, children’s lives, elders lives,
indigenous lives, gay lives, animal’s lives,
the living land and water.
It’s an earthquake of spirit.
A volcano.


The body will have its event
and we will have to choose.
This is where art comes back in.
Free will wants to grow,
but not without free, loving and beautiful people.
This is whyI’ II dance in the culvert of despair
just as I dance in the streets.
I pray in the studio, the office, and the recovery zone.
I am a first and a last responder,
I am a mother octopus suspended with her eggs
preparing to die.

Anne Hutchinson–Grace on Trial: An Ancestor Story

A live reading by Cynthia Winton-Henry on zoom

Three dates
Thursday, Sept 17, 6-7  pm Pacific
Friday, Sept 18, 6-7 pm Pacific
Sunday, Sept 20, 10-11 am Pacific








In this live reading, I take great care to share the facts about my boatload of extended family, led by a woman, and what happened after they landed in Boston in the early 1630s. It impacts America’s foundational relationship with land, gender, first people, morality, and white supremacy. Like us, they met up with

  • Nature at its harshest
  • A pandemic
  • A legalistic, punishing, religiously fanatical body politic
  • An unwavering, authoritarian male ego.
  • The systemic crippling of female, indigenous and black cultures
  • And, a undying Grace that ran through them like a river.

After the 30 minute reading we’ll reflect, notice, ask questions, and dance on behalf of grace activists everywhere!
