"Is there an angel inside waiting to be unleashed?"
Each year, I gather wise, playful, sensitive types who, amid everything, feel called to reveal Something Beautiful, Glorious, Deep, and Whole. Call it soul or the me-of-me and the you-of-you. We know it’s not just an individual thing. It comes from being connected to Earth, Nature, each other, and the big, star-filled dancing Universe.
While cofounding InterPlay, I saw astonishing genius emerge from both rambunctious and shy people. It happened when they engaged their creative birthrights: their movement, voice, story, and stillness. When people are supported to tune into their creative bodyspirit I saw their wisdom and resilience grow. Mine too! Through research in dance and religion, around the world, I knew this was not a fluke. Creative ritual practice is ancestral stuff. Angels fly. Souls shine. Health grows when body and soul come out to play in community.
At the same time, I’ve had to navigate too many human spaces (religious, medical, academic, and political) that feel void of the ancestral wisdom of body and soul. As someone who senses and notices more than average, I’m grateful for my gifts, but I also feel odd. I pick up so much from the world that I over-give and have to retract. I often agonize, suffer, overdo, and feel out of step with others. It was hard to know what to do with my visionary input until I dug deeper into readings and found special teachers.
Gradually, I uncovered 12 Creative Initiations that help restore me and others to our most Nurturing, Instinctual, Playful, Empathetic, and Sovereign Soul. The strategies are not always how I was taught, yet they resemble the wisdom teachings I find in many traditions.

Wisdom for Body and Soul:
Creative Strategies that Support
Efficiency of Energy, Clarity of Vision, Courage to Love
In my 30s, grappling with energy imbalances and injustice, streaming Great Love, feeling weird, alone, without knowing how to navigate the world, one day, a voice instructed, “These are your three directives–efficiency of energy, clarity of vision, courage to love.” I was ready. The path of ensoulment introduced me to the initiations I now teach in the Three Directives Course—link here for more information.

Each month gifted me with a deeper way of dancing with life’s initiations. It gave me ways to experience these life shifts as gateways. I moved through each gateway with profound appreciation and awe, transformed by the experience rather than trampled by it. Cynthia’s guidance about how to navigate life in a sensitive body and to playfully release and dance has been life-saving. This is a course one can encounter, again and again, going deeper each time. The richness of this course can’t be overstated, I feel very fortunate to have had the chance to take the journey of ensoulment. "
