4 years ago our regular ecstatic dances in Jersey were born. Inspired by Ya’Acov and Susannah’s Movement Medicine and since inspired by many other dance modalities, healing therapies and amazing teachers. Everyone is invited to our special shake out to celebrate – no matter how new to this way of dancing – come as you are – wear something that inspires fun and some celebration!!
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Marianne Williamson
Don’t live in fear of who you are anymore. You are more amazing than you could ever imagine. The universe is telling us to wake up to who we really are and to stop living in fear, depression, sadness and denial. If you have felt the call to open up more parts of yourself and push yourself into unknown exciting territories, then this is the dance class for you.
Combining dance, meditations, visualisations and powerful affirmations, our journey will take you back home to your true nature which is pure and bright. This class is not religously orientated but does support your spiritual journey whatever beliefs you may subscribe to.
See http://earth-beauty.com/soul-movement/ for info and testimonials from dancers.
You do not have to be feeling physically strong or even in good form, just come as you are and let the facilitation, energy and light in the dance space create its magic with you.
Bring: water, blanket, wear loose fitting layers.
Cost: £10 or £8 for concessions

Our women’s only dances are a very special time to really allow ourselves to feel the force of the feminine in our bodies. She is healing, transforming, accepting, powerful, open, sensual, playful and courageous and as women of the 21 Century in a world dominated by the masculine energy, we are so ready to let her come into her full expression and power again. Too long we have hidden her. This is a bonding space for sister energy – where the judgments and fears of the past can be transformed into peace and harmony.
We will particularly honour the Libran Full Moon energy of harmony, balance and beauty.
Bring your blankets, some water and wear something and/or bring something for the altar that represents the divine feminine in you. Wear comfy layers you can move around in.
If you have not been before, come and dive in with us into this dance … you will be held perfectly.
So excited to see you all and journey together!
Cost £10 or £8 for concessions.

One of the deepest fears we have as men and women is to allow ourselves to feel safe enough to let go into being touched physically and emotionally. It is also what many of us long for with our friends and our partners. This
workshop is designed to guide you, through dance, to a place of trust and innocence, and an experience of profoundly touching and loving intimacy.
Sometimes we are deeply touched simply by looking into another’s eyes and allowing them to look into ours.There is no prescription; it is different for all of us and as wide as the ocean. Come dance, and experience the gifts of intimacy, innocence & connection.
What are the 5Rhythms?
The 5 Rhythms comprise a simple movement practice designed to release the dancer that lives in every body, no matter what shape, size, age, limitations and experience. To find your dance is to find yourself, at your most fluid and
creative level. While the practice itself is the essence of simplicity, it has the power to catalyse deep healing and creative expression. The primary teaching of this work is: if you put the body in motion the psyche will heal itself.
The rhythms are the foundation of Gabrielle Roth’s work, a series of healing maps for the body, heart, mind, soul and spirit that provide a lifetime of self discovery and a path to awakening.

I learnt over half my lifetime ago that this ancient cosmic system of knowledge and life beautifully supports our transformative processes and adds an extra dimensional insight into knowing who we are at the innermost core of our-self and also who we have the potential to become. Once we understand better the inherent energies that we came into this world with and perhaps any big current planetary influences for us, we can learn how to surrender and flow with them instead of against them, as we are more able to create the life we want to live where we thrive and are excited, passionate, open and engaged, instead of a life where we feel we simply exist and are controlled by our experiences.
With this extra dimension added to our understanding of ourselves – relationships, careers, creativity, family issues etc are really given the potential to be understood and transcended, and the gifts that they offer our self-growth can be really be reaped.
Its exciting to be able to offer Astrological Insight Guides at Earth Beauty. For this, you need to know your time of birth, as well as date and place of birth. The Insight Guide costs £75 and can also be given on Skype as well as in person by myself at Earth Beauty in Jersey. Sessions usually last around 1hour and 30mins but can be longer too.
I look forward to journeying with you into your-self!

Sunny Thai musings, sitting in the bed, early in the morn, parts of me reborn, with echoes of the flip flops flapping on the bay. Imagination bags filled to brim with blessings had and sun so bright it shone right out my bum. Shiva’s spiral eyes peeping up in sands below, praying mantis visiting; reminders to go slow and move only with the flow. Days connected, in full power, others eager, sweet n sour, losing time immersed in flowers. Beginning gentle fruity mornings, dancing as the days are dawning and beautiful new friends shining their light, giving daily embraces warm and tight. Sometimes days were harder, times feverish in bed, from frustration I was led, to alchemical healing hall, a playground for transforming all, and pushed right to my edge. Final night in paradise, Bobby’s chocolate cake at ‘Spice’, still lingers on my lips. Giggly gangsta rap-off under the full moon, making crazy tunes, provoked by tall and cheeky bubbly Irish bearded loon. Arriving still arriving, landing back inside, integrating magic and shedding bits that died. Dancing in this gratitude, thanking life and all of you.
Because I need some sunshine, because I need some rest, because I need warmth and beautiful scenery, because I want to do some more experiential studies. It seems that Thailand is offering all the above so I shall be there until the early spring. Do email me if you need to get in contact as I will be checking regularly.
I’ll miss you all and hope to see you when I get back.
Keep well and nourished this winter.

“Everything in the universe has rhythm. Everything dances.” – Maya Angelou
One of the most wonderful gifts we can give ourselves this year is to choose to live a life of full expression, heart connection and truth. Opening ourselves up to rhythm, the rhythm that is always present in ourselves and all of life brings us into a deeper and more fulfilling relationship to ourselves and the world around us. ‘Opening into Rhythm in 2014’ is a Soul Movement Dance Class for everyone. Our dance space is a sacred place to discover your inner dancer if you’ve not yet met them, and a place to reignite and reconnect again and again to your power and strength.
Soul Movement classes are totally free-form movement /dance classes inspired by music and facilitation from the teacher, allowing our bodies to move freely without judgment or concern ‘for the “grace” or beauty of the dance. It’s an inner/outer journey of moving meditation, letting your body, heart and soul be your inner guide. There is much evidence to suggest that dance is an intrinsic part of a healthy community and has been practised since the beginning of time as a way to connect deeper into our potential and the fabric of the magical beings that we are. New dancers and seasoned dancers from everywhere are invited to join this community.
Maria started these classes after being greatly inspired by Movement Medicine, 5Rhythms and Soul Motion. Come and see what your inner dancer can offer you.
PLEASE NOTE: This is the last Soul Movement Dance Class to be facilitated by Maria until March!
