Retreats & Workshops
(Classes/retreats/workshops offered by Adina that are
taking place outside of the Iowa City/Coralville area.)
Workshop in Wisconsin
Adina has woven her shamanic training with her love of Free Form Dance & Movement to create this ceremonial form of reconnecting with the body as a sacred tool to dive into the mystery of our very beings. In a world where so many of us feel stressed in our bodies, we can learn to stop and listen to the wisdom that our bodies hold by carefully exploring both our bodies’ biology (hormones and nervous system in stress) and simultaneously entering the unseen realms. With eyes half closed in the candle-lit meditation hall we will use dance as a means to tap into this exploratory journey to receive guidance from our bodies, ancestors, healing guides, and Future Selves.
Instead of learning steps to a specific dance routine, Free Form Dance gives us unlimited access to interact with our unique life stories. Our stressful situations become places for us to learn from, moving away from a survival mentality, unraveling myths from our ancestry, and learning to dance in the flow that resides in and around us all.
During our three days together we will embark on an inward journey where each session builds on the next. We will begin with an Introduction to Free Form Dance & Movement making this class accessible to anyone who is interested. No previous dance experience needed. Participants will have time to journal and process their work with the group during the retreat.

Adina completed a 3 1⁄2 year Shamanic Apprenticeship and has participated in medicine dances in forests, outdoor arbors, and parks in order to connect in a conscious way with the Earth, her body, and the larger interconnection of the Universe.
