We aim to re-invigorate relational strengths in humanity by offering experiences to individuals and groups that come from our power of Attention- so creating, communicating or healing is done through fully embodied Presence in a coherent field we share with the earth and each other. Through practice and continued rituals we can continually realize potentials that affect our future.
Embodiment Field draws from mind/body phenomena, performance studies, philosophy, psychology, sociology, energy-field research, community studies, somatics, energy medicine, self-healing and dance.

She worked in dance, somatics and the healing arts for two decades in Santa Cruz, Ca where she collaborated with Nita Little for 12 years in research on relational (shared-field) studies, as well as contact improvisation.
