Welcome the Sun
During Summer Solstice, the sun energizes, provides warmth and brings with it a season of growth. Naturally, we are inspired to lighten and brighten our outer living spaces this time of year. Clearing out, decluttering and lightening up our inner living room as well serves to unlock our potential, raise our vibration and acts as a catalyst for positive shifts to occur in our lives.

The Sun invites us to shine, express our luminous self, and turn towards what makes us feel vital and alive. This is the perfect archetype to explore when you are seeking ways to raise your vibration. Solar power your life! Tune in to your inner sunshine. Move through the world as the shimmering and shining light that you are.

Rise up. Awaken. Heed the call of your most holy and whole self. Sense your aliveness.

Inspired by the tarot card of Judgment and choreographed using the language of Nia, Resurrection sparks the life force energy in the body to awaken, rise and expand from the root to the crown.

This body of work was choreographed by Jennifer Lucero-Earle, First Degree Black Belt and creator of ArcanaDance™, and fuses the language of Nia with the embodied archetypal storytelling of tarot. This journey into universal and personal consciousness is one of a kind.

This class is a teaser for the ArcanaDance™ workshop, The Dance of Awakening the Limitless Self: A Somatic Tarot Workshop with The Judgment Card. See below!

In the tarot, the Judgment card is the archetype of rebirth. At the heart of this archetype is resurrecting the limitless self that has been buried deep within us as a result of judgment, criticism and shame. We are summoned to rise up and reclaim ourselves through expanded awareness, forgiveness, and commitment to our purpose.

This introductory ArcanaDance™ workshop guides us through an embodied journey of expanded awareness, liberation from constriction, and heeding the call to a new beginning.

This practice is unlike any tarot experience. We learn the tarot through the language of the body. We listen. We write. We dance. We do ritual. Our mind is suspended, our heart is held, and our soul speaks directly to us through the primal intelligence of our body. And a new story for our lives is written.

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.

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
  • Shadow Council

Delivery methods:

  • Live sessions (will be recorded)
