We will have her blog post up shortly but in the meantime please visit her website, check out her social media, while listening to her and Anyssa Jane on The Ladies Meeting Podcast this month. She is our keynote speaker this month and will be speaking on ” The Body Never Lies”
Here is an introduction to her talk:
THE BODY NEVER LIES – 2019.06.11
“Though the words “The Body Never Lies” are not original – many people have used those words many times eg. Karen Kain, Artistic Director of The National Ballet, has written a book with that same title, The Body Never Lies. Those same words have become the words I live by – my creed – for through experience, I have learned them to be true.
As a dance and theatre artist with a 30+ year professional career, I lived by my body. My body was my instrument, my vehicle of expression. It was the chassis that I was responsible for nourishing, keeping in shape, for if allowed to fall into disrepair, my livelihood would follow suit.
So after retiring from performing, teaching, and creating in 2005, I returned to the 3rd generation hardware and lumber business co-owned with my – at-the-time – husband and I. My idea was to craft both a succession plan for our son and retirement plan for my husband. Ironically, the best laid plans came to nought . . . as the retail landscape changed. Shopping in bricks and mortar storefronts began to be replaced by online shopping, small independents were being squeezed by the Big Box phenomenon – there were multiple reasons why this once thriving business began to fail. And along with it, my body.” This month on June 25 she will talk about how she found I found physical, mental and emotional sanctuary in yoga and meditation and started a whole new career in her 60’s.
