In conversation with Merle
Empowered from within

Happily I will be returning to London for a series of free evening conversations in the spring followed by workshops. I am looking forward to this special opportunity to meet with you all to share in conversation on a topic that is close to our hearts.
What do you really want? what does empowered from within mean for you? what are the obstacles which stops you from being true to yourself ?  These are some of the questions I am interested in dialoguing with you about and exploring together more deeply. Life is our ultimate teacher, and our bodies are our most valuable asset which carries our sense of being. I will attempt to meet you right where you are. Within each individual is the ability to shape their own life. In times of challenges often this innate ability is hampered. Our creativity is our deepest level, it allows us the freedom to say the unsayable. Empowered from within is for those who want to find another language for expression.

Join us for tools and strategies to tackle the tough stuff of self-empowerment and making an investment in you.

Rehearsal For change™
Our bodies hold our life experiences. When we sing, dance and make music we stay connected to our personal history gaining insights from the past to fuel the future. Rehearsal For change™ reflect the perspective of person centred learning while educating the whole person. Using combined arts which stimulates the boundaries of the imagination, participants are guided to see with their senses, explore their passion and tap their unique inner resources. They gain skills for new modes of expression as they return to the wisdom of the body to find true meaning to their lives. Using creative expression as a step towards self-empowerment, emphasis is placed on reversing self-imposed limitations which block authenticity and holds us back from our full potential. Rehearsal For change™ is for those seeking meaning and another language for expression to reach their full potential. Activities include body awareness, authentic movement, dance, visual arts, and voice theatre.

not a collection of skills but an eradication of blocks”. Jerzy Grotowski
