3:00 pm – 5:00pm
In Boulder, Colorado. In a lovely studio.
What happens there:
- Delicious brain-scrambling and then even more delicious clarity.
- Writing. Or drawing, scribbling or doodling, if you do not like to write.
- Epiphanies. Hot, buttered epiphanies.
- Laughing. A lot.
Who gets to come:
The first eighteen people to sign up.
Why now is a good time to do this:
I used to travel all over the world teaching but since opening the Playground in Portland nearly two years ago, it’s pretty close to impossible to get me to go anywhere.
The last time I traveled to teach was last December in Sacramento (which sold out in a day and a half after we announced it). Next time might not be for a couple years.
So if you want to hang out with me and Selma somewhere that is not Oregon, it’s going to have to be Boulder. :)
What not to be worried about:
Oh, so many things!
Let’s see …
1. Having to do two whole hours of Shiva Nata, because you won’t.
We’ll be breaking it up with writing and exercises and capers and old Turkish Lady stretches.
2. Everyone else being better than you.
There will be total first time beginners and people who have trained with me for years.
Everyone will be lost and confused, because that’s how we do it.
3. What to wear.
Anything comfortable that you can move in is fine. I’ll probably be wearing a cotton dress over loose pants or tights.
What you should be worried about, probably:
Heed Surgeon General Shiva’s warning:
Epiphanies can change your life!
For the better, of course. But it’s still change. Pretty much always weird and freaky. Sorry about that.
How much to hurry:
I think I would. Probably. The studio where we are doing this is gorgeous but not large. This will fill up quickly.
However, I do not want to be pressure-ey because that is not fun for either of us. Think on it, meditate on it, dance on it, come if it speaks to you.
And I’m also doing something I don’t do. Whee!
I do not generally do guarantees because I don’t like or need them, but I am feeling drawn to offer one now anyway.
And so here it is:
If within 48 hours of your class, you have not at least three useful realizations and one lovely idea that you’ve never had before, I will be astonished. And I will give you your money back.
But really? This is lowballing it because you will have so much more than this. You will have dozens of realizations, as well as huge excitement and enthusiasm about doing things with them. And you will meet great people and discover what you want and surprise yourself. Because that is what happens.
What this is going to cost.
The workshop is $60 if you pre-register. $75 at the door.
Though I imagine the program will fill up in the next week.

The last time I did a workshop that wasn’t at my center in Portland (last December — Sacramento, California), it sold out in a day and a half.
Usual fine printables apply!

3. Before signing up, check in with yourself and make sure this is what you want.
4. If you can’t make it, we’ll offer your tuition paid as a stowawayship scholarship so someone else can attend. See our Incredibly Boring Policies page.
p.s. If you can’t make it this time, I will still adore you. And maybe we will see each other at the Playground someday. xox
