I met Rochelle at a Qoya (dance) class that she lead during her visit to Boulder last spring. Her sensual, fierce vibrancy touched me deeply, and I invited her here to share her embodied wisdom with us. Rochelle recounts the tale of her own Heroine’s Journey, and what it’s been like for her to “go against the grain” in order to follow her heart and create her life’s work. She speaks of opening to the power of “Mother energy” (even when one doesn’t choose to birth children), the importance of getting into one’s body, and a hard lesson she learned that led her to finally trust herself. In closing, Rochelle gives succinct instruction for how to reach out for divine guidance. Join us to celebrate the full spectrum of our womanhood and allow Rochelle’s story to inspire you to follow your own precious heart.
