Having cut my dancing teeth tearing up the red dust of Goa’s legendary and untamed trance parties throughout the 1990s and with family life taking ascendance in the last decade with marriage and
the subsequent arrival of two fantastic boys, my offerings combine the apparent wildness of our edges and the seeming ordinariness of day-to-day life and are driven by a commitment to ground this
practice into the embodied consciousness of the present and future guardians of this planet, drawing on the wisdom of the sages, personal experience and the infinite simplicity of Gabrielle’s
maps. See you on the dance-floor!
