Special Spring Offering in Detroit


Receiving the Guidance:

A Somatic Movement Workshop For Our Divinely Embodied Selves


WHEN Sunday, June 11th, 2-4pm


WHERE Light Box 8641 Linwood Street in Detroit.


COST $40 (No one turned away for lack of funds). Registration link


In this two hour movement workshop, honoring the Jewish month of Sivan, we will curiously and compassionately explore sensation, movement, breath, gesture, and image — grounding and centering ourselves with practices to cultivate nervous system regulation and connection to ourselves, one another and the rest of the natural world.


We will read from the ancient etching on our bones,

sip from the precious elixir of our cerebrospinal fluid,

and listen through our bodies to the divine wisdom they possess.


The workshop will feature a combination of guided and body-directed movement practices, exploring somatic movement as a means of healing, self-discovery, creative expression and self-care.


Jews and non-Jews welcome!

No prior experience with somatics or body based practice required. 

All bodies welcome -- Light Box is an accessible space.

Through the practice of Authentic Movement (or Contemplative Dance as it's also known) we investigate how, rather than moving our bodies in habitual ways, or those dictated by others, we can be led by our bodies into movement. Eyes-closed movers, heeding movement impulses serve also as witnesses to one another, regarding each other with compassion, care, and curiosity.

An interplay of embodiment, contemplation, creativity, and mystery, the practice connects us to our bodies, our creative and physical impulses, and to our own sensitivity and empowerment.



In Ann Arbor at 180 Little Lake Drive, Suite 1

"I am so grateful to have discovered this practice. Stefanie has created a rare space to safely dive into the body's own messages and inner guidance, to allow movement itself to reveal, release, create and be. If your body is craving to move in complete creative freedom, unencumbered by right or wrong, or judgement; if you are curious what your body itself might reveal to you, I highly recommend this practice and Stefanie's work– she is a brilliant facilitator!"
