    -This class will focus on key ceoncepts & discussion that can be applied to the accompanying classes in this session-

    “A Hula Dancer conjures-up Mana to create Life again from a memory told in a story. She recreates life and transforms it into a dance. How beautiful this life she is creating.”

    Observation, Intention and Passion are a few of the seeds sowed to create. Through this course we will help bring focus, find our inner leadership, and empowerment as a group to Create Together. Your final tool for creation may be photography, dance, writing, song, to name a few, but one should first learn how to operate with the information presented in front of you.  Join us to learn the breakdowns.
