4 Elements Arts
Why 4 Elements arts?
The arts have also been a huge part of my life, ever since I can remember.
Another important aspect of this site will be my blog and photos from my travels of places that inspire and inform my view of the world.
Dance is my overarching passion in life, so under the Dance section you will find my workshop offerings and any guest teachers I am hosting, usually in the UK. I will also add a calendar with upcoming performances.
I have studied the 4 elements in various indigenous and magical traditions for over 20 years now. They create the space through which I move and how the world functions in its basic form every day. What we see in Nature Inspires us through Air, burns, creates, destroys through fire, nurtures us through the sea and the rain, and give us the juicy earth to dig into to create our garndens, homes, and green spaces to enjoy our planet.
Nitty Gritty: I have a BA in Film & Video Studies, Gender & Feminist Studies from Pitzer College in Claremont, CA, USA, 1994. I have completed Gina McGarry's Herbalism correspondance course from her Brighid's Academy of Heaing Arts in 2008. This includes Celtic Herbalism meteria medica, gardening, flower essences, tinctures, and other holistic remedies. I am a Reiki II practitioner in the Usui Reiki tradition since 2000. I have been a professional Tarot reader since 2000.
I hope you enjoy reading the blog and the site!
I've been dancing as long as I can remember, mostly for myself. Back in 2011, a few friends of mine convinced me to try bellydance and I was hooked. Since then, I've found many inspired teachers around the world who inform my dance. I now travel often and love to explore new places as I explore dance.
