ArcanaDance™ – The Dance of Divine Play: Embodied Storytelling, Tarot, and Movement – To be Rescheduled once Coronavirus Pandemic stabilizes and passes
Lila, or Leela, is a practice and philosophy in yoga that roughly translates into “creative play with the divine.” It is spontaneous and vibrant energy that invites us to co-create our life in partnership with outside forces – nature, spirit, humanity, etc. We all carry narratives and stories about our history, present and in some ways, about our future. Divine play invites us to shift those narratives from a new lens, one rooted in a delightful dance with a generous, fun, ever-flowing, bountiful and loving Universe.
In the tarot, the Fool card is the archetype associated with trust and joy in the journey of life.
Some of our stories have been written. Some of those stories may desire a new narrative or mythology. There are stories eager to be written and new narratives waiting to be discovered. There can be joy and lightness in the creation of and sharing of story. The Fool will be our trusted guide and co-creative archetypal partner on our journey to create a personal narrative sourced from divine play.
What you will experience:
- A somatic exploration of divine play
- An introduction to embodied storytelling
- Playing with tarot as a creative story-shifting catalyst
- The seeds of a new narrative
ArcanaDance™ is somatic tarot. Created by Jennifer Lucero-Earle, this therapeutic practice is designed to facilitate self-discovery, empowerment, transformation & healing through a fusion of tarot, guided movement & music. No tarot or dance experience required.
There will be several tarot decks available for participants to use during the workshop. However, participants are welcome to bring a tarot deck of their own, if they have one they’d like to use.
Jennifer Lucero-Earle is the creator of ArcanaDance™, a therapeutic somatic practice that fuses archetypes, self-inquiry and tarot with guided movement. She is also a somatic therapist-in-training and movement facilitator with over 30 years of experience working with the tarot. What Jennifer loves most in the world is facilitating safe, non-judgmental, and culturally compassionate experiences for people to move, feel, heal, and grow into their most joyful self.
Liziah Richards is a mental health therapist, Yoga instructor, writer, and performing artist that is passionate about helping people. Through movement, therapeutic conversation, intuitive guidance and heart opening practices she supports people to live with more compassion and joy. She helps people heal from painful life experience and create new awareness and patterns that allow healthier relationship with self and others.

An ArcanaDance Course with Jennifer Lucero-Earle
Dancing with the Devil: A Somatic Exploration of the Shadow
In the tarot, The Devil represents the archetype of the shadow. The shadow embodies any part of us that we’ve banished to the dark – the parts of us we’ve denied expression, exposure and discovery. The shadow also reveals to us a complex relationship with power. Who, what, where and how do you give your power over, and at what cost?
Somatic means “relating to the body.” The body is not only where we experience life, it is the frontier of our transformation. ArcanaDance™ brings the tarot to life through the body. In this course you will learn about the physical imprint of the shadow as expressed and experienced through the language of the body. You will also learn how to use and transform the contractive energy of the shadow into something new and more expansive.
Join us for Six Online Sessions:
- Intro to the Shadow via Somatic Tarot
- Exploring the Personal Shadow
- Exploring the Collective Shadow
- Moving with the Shadow
- Transforming the Shadow
