Mission

Moving in Grace is an expressive arts ministry offering mindful embodiment guidance for individuals, groups and communities to cultivate resilience through inner and outer reconnection and reconciliation for a regenerative lifestyle.

It is a way of being in the world, in relationship with oneself, all beings, the Earth and the Infinite with deep trust that we are innately guided and if we cultivate connection & reconciliation within ourselves we are more likely to be able to do the outer work of connection & reconciliation with others.

It is a way of life that integrates spiritual consciousness into all daily activities with an emphasis on equity, inclusion and accessibility for all.

 

Mission: To support individuals and groups to cultivate greater resilience to gracefully live with and create change internally and collectively towards equity, inclusion and accessibility for all.

 

How does that happen? 
By learning about and fulfilling our needs within ourselves, with our environment, and in relationship with others we are able take the risk to expand ourselves, learn from others and consider other's needs who are different from us.

Through:

  • Connecting with the place and honoring the indigenous history and people of the land

  • Cultivating a contemplative awareness internally in both stillness and movement, sounding and silence to stay present with feelings and sensations while in action and relationship

  • Discerning how to move with what one is experiencing in relationship to others in the most generative ways

  • Discovering and expressing one’s creative power and purpose as well as receiving other's

  • Expanding one’s awareness to include a larger perspective and context in reflection

  • Inspiring Action to create change in one’s personal, relational and communal lives in co-creation with others

Values:

  • Integrity (Honoring authenticity in the moment with my current alignment and continuing to be curious) 
     

  • Inclusion (Welcoming all aspects of self, all beings and stories to be included and valued) 
     

  • Creative Empowerment (Trust that we can all uplift ourselves through our own creative process) 
     

  • Balance (The ever shifting process of change that is a moving experience of harmony)
