"This Workshop format that Jacia provides offers a clear, safe, intentional space for the deep exploration of Embodiment. Our profound human experience, our karma, our stories - mental , emotional, and spiritual, and how they are intricately related to our physical experiences as embodied humans. Her classes invite us to tune into our individual and collective healing processes that are so greatly being called for in this time. These workshops have given me a whole new body awareness and connection that allows me to dance in ways i have never danced before, which is wonderful, but , there is so much more to it than dance. Her workshop gives you the opportunity to go deeply within to integrate and weave your medicine path by listening and receiving messages from the body, and using dance as Prayer. There's also the opportunity to connect with others, working with the intimacy wounds and patterns , which is both deeply nourishing and deeply challenging (- pushing you outside your comfort zone...usually where the magic happens! ) I have witnessed and experienced so much healing and transformation in these workshops, so many people doing their work and maturing, evolving to new levels of embodied expression. I think it is the safe, deliberate space that Jacia sets and holds, combined with the effective wisdom, structure and philosophy of the 5 Rhythms practice itself, that makes this practice and class work for so many people.... and why so many of her students take it again and again.

"The minute i heard of Jacia's class, I knew it was where I needed to be. The thought of dancing in public conjured the words, "hate" and "fear" and "never". I wanted to see if I could break free from these stories. With Jacia's expert guidance and love, My fear "dance" has transformed into an ever present profound tool to understand and accept myself in ways I never imagined. The Rhythms of Acceptance process has helped me to see things as they are and set in motion a pure path to love and connection with myself, nature, and all sentient beings. Powerful! Thank you , dear Jacia" Jennifer Swanson
"The 5 Rhythms has intensified my experience as a dancer through the practice of surrendering, releasing, and honoring expression and intention. Jacia has an amazing capacity to cultivate and bloom greater awareness of Self and of one being through her teaching. I have loved every minute of this practice with her and this community.

"I met Jacia at a major transitioning point in my life leaving my focus on outer relationships and starting a new one with myself and my inner life. Her 12 week series was the perfect compliment to my personal growth, deepening it much further while bringing it to awarenesses I wasn't even at all conscious of before. I am truly grateful. Her work played a large roll in creating the feeling that i'm much closer to who i want to be and who i truly am." Seth M
"Jacia's facilitation of personal growth and group based learning is highly developed. She has a sensitivity to both the needs of the group and the needs of the individuals within the group. For me the 5 Rhythms 12 week class allowed me to take my own personal work and come away deepened with what i needed while developing a new comfort and joy of dancing at the same time."

"It is as though Jacia was born to create space for healing. As each time i stepped foot onto her 5 rhythms ground, I was moved into a new layer of my self. She moved, shocked, twisted, and loved me into a brand new me. She has the God given gifts of shifting the consciousness of a room....of unifying the energies of a group into a cohesive healing unit, where everyone evolves through the process as One. It is something that has changed my life, I will never forget, and recommend everyone experience. "
"Jacia's 12 week 5 rhythms workshop series has been most incredible and transforming for me. By getting in touch with my feelings and being free to embody them and move with them, my true desires became known to me. This gave me the strength to expose them and allow them to miraculously be fulfilled. It has been one of the most amazing inner journeys i have ever experienced." Karen Kite
"From the moment i entered Jacia's 5 rhythms 12 week workshops...my life has changed for the better. Jacia gently guided me through the obstacles and challenges that were holding me back in my life; I was able to leave an unhealthy relationship, change careers and start anew. Through the dancing of the five rhythms I have regained my true essence and life force: I am living proof of the power of dance to heal my heart and life." Lisa Sun
"This is my seventh time taking Jacia's 12 week course and I heartedly recommend it. Jacia skillfully and carefully creates an environment for her students to become self healers through their dance process. She has the gift of helping others to bring forth their gifts. She is loving, lovable, straightforward, down to earth, and believes in her practices. As a dancer, she fully embodies what she is teaching....for me that means showing up again and again ready and willing to dance with life." Erica Charlesworh
"Jacia guided me gently but powerfully into a place of deeper connection with my inner truth. She helped me go beyond some of my self imposed boundaries. She is a truly gifted, effective and compassionate teacher and healer. " M. Amos Clifford
