OUR MISSION

Mariposa Movement is here to pollinate awakening through dance
so that living in harmony with nature + each other becomes the norm.

APRIL-JUNE (CATERPILLAR CONSCIOUSNESS)

Opening Ceremony on April 1, 2024 via Zoom!
Starting where we are, we set a strong container for the journey ahead.  This trimester covers the basics of ritual & dance facilitation & locates us within a context of dance/movement lineages.  

JUNE-SEPTEMBER (ENTER THE CHRYSALIS)

We enter this module together in Costa Rica. Through embodied dance ritual + nature connection, we enter the chrysalis together.  Shed all that no longer serves, release who you've been and all that's holding you back as you make space for the new YOU emerging. In this module, begin to practice teach + discover your authentic voice.

SEPTEMBER-DECEMBER (BUTTERFLY BLUEPRINT)

Spread your wings into embodied leadership. Host practice groups within your local community. Clarify your vision for your embodiment offerings and community events. Discover your unique mission, message + brand. Put it all together and begin to fly.
"To anyone considering joining the movement, I would say the time is NOW Mariposa! This program is sooooo much more than dancing and it is impossible to simply put into words what it entails and gifts you. What I can say is that, under the guidance of Aliza, your life will transform to a more expansive state of being. She flies with you on a healing journey as your caterpillar self dissolves in the chrysalis and gives birth to the most radiant butterfly that is you, the true you.
