If you’re like me, your life is overwhelming at times. You’ve had some tough stuff to deal with, and all the while having family members and colleagues relying on you to help them get through.
Perhaps you find yourself thinking:
- Where’s the support for me?
- When is it my turn?
- How can I simplify and deepen my life?
- What can energize me to be able to realize my dreams?
I’m Sheila K. Collins. My mission is to encourage, inspire, and enliven women to dance with everything. I started telling people a few years ago, “I’m a dancing social worker,” when they asked me “What do you do?” In addition to bringing together my careers as a dancer and a social worker, now, after 5 years of developing the skills to write creative non-fiction I can say, “I’m a dancing social worker who practices finding the words to write about it all.”
For me, dance is both a metaphor and an actual vehicle for:
- exploring the wisdom of the body
- letting go of stress and becoming energized
- coming fully into the present moment
- connecting to our deepest selves
- making satisfying connections to others
- celebrating life and embracing joy
Tools for joining the dance
Dancers often have studios, a place to create; an artist’s workroom, an environment for creative play. I invite you to check out my studios for more resources for a dancing life. Each studio brings together several tools to illuminate aspects of the “Dancing on behalf of” theme: a story, a song, a dance, a meditation, and further resources.
