About this trip

Chloe and Visudha join together to both experience and exemplify SpiritFlight: Interdependence

Workshop Description:

We often forget that WE ARE NATURE. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we’ve LOST OUR CONNECTION to ourselves.                                                         Andy Goldsworthy

In the natural world, everything intrinsically depends on everything else - every plant and animal holds a unique role in the collaborative co-creation of life. How do we remember we are also, intrinsically part of this?

In a culture that holds independence as a prime value – awareness is needed to know we rely on each other. In a society where so many of us feel isolated - courage and vulnerability are needed to create connection. In a system that separates us – practice in unity is needed: how do we lean into each other, be with each other, listen to, see, receive from and give to each other with grace?

In this ten-day immersion, Interdependence will be our teacher, our exploration, our mediation and our medicine.  Through movement, art, ritual and community we will seek the embodied wisdom of reciprocity and cooperation. We will dance in the balance of generosity and receptivity, strength and vulnerability, reliance and trust. Together we will expand into the field of 

possibilities available to us when we are interconnected, co-creative and collaborative. 

The further human society drifts away from nature, the less we understand about interdependence.                          Peter Senge

Our Goal is Freedom!

The 10 Day embodiment intensive is a popular yearly program offered by Mystery in Motion for many years.  It's based on finding freedom in the body, of experiencing the totality of what is you in this moment, of aligning bodily sensations, with felt sensations, and with the intuitive and instinctive self.   Soul work and recovery through the arts.

In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of begin disheartened, dispirited, or depressed they would ask you one of four questions:

"When did you stop dancing?

When did you stop singing?

When did you stop being enchanted by stories?

When did you stop being comforted by the sweet territory of silence? 

Gabrielle Roth

“Dance is healing.   It is energizing, and a way to know yourself. 

Move and you will dance.  Dance and you will fly.  Fly and you will soar. Soar and you will know the Divine. Know the Divine and you will know Truth.  Know the Truth and you will know the Mystery.” VMDLS

But most of all, Mystery lets us fly to freedom.  

Are you ready to surrender ?

Are you ready to meet yourself?  

Are you ready to know the mystery that you are? 

Are you ready to ride and fly high?  

Are you ready to be liberated? 

Are you ready to be free from all that restricts you?  

Are you Ready?

I've been traveling around teaching shamanic and embodiment practices for over a decade. I can't live without soul connection, and this means the things like music, dance, art and travel that make me light up and transform my consciousness. Based in Taos, the middle of the Land of Enchantment in New Mexico, I hike, kayak, and ski when Iot dancing and singing. Artist, healer and spiritual midwife. I envision a universe of peace, love, harmony, and unity, wherein all living beings are free to express their essential self. With clear insight, strong presence, gentle spirit and graceful ability to traverse many worlds at once, my mission is to guide others towards their fullest expression through movement, art and ritual. Creator of the Gong Journey & Serpent Temple, and accredited teacher of the 5Rhythms, Visudha resides in Taos, NM, and teaches internationally. Check out www.visudhadelossantos.com for more information including other offerings.


Amazing. I would recommend this (or anything Visudha de los Santos is involved in) to anyone looking to expand their awareness of self and our connection to all things in this world. Wonderful group of humans who genuinely care. Plus it was a beautiful space for dancing with great views.
