Did you know that you are a trillion-celled universe? Our cells live in communities cooperating with each other, living and dying without our awareness.

Only two kinds of cells live with us over our lifetime, our neurons and heart muscle. So we learn ways to enhance our brain and heart to keep them healthy.

All of our cells share an intelligence that keeps us alive. Discover what you can do to activate your cells to help them and you thrive. You will learn how to be in partnership with your cells in this online course. Blending biology, bodymind health and experiential activities you will learn how to engage with the innate and sacred wisdom of your cellular life.

We explore how we and our cells communicate, what stresses them, how to lessen that stress and better manage life’s challenges. Our cells’ unique architectural design – the connective cytoskeleton of tubes and strings – provides a tangible place where energy, vibration, sound and movement activate cell functions, inner wisdom, and gene expression. We activate our knowledge, memory and sense of wellbeing when we can embody and make tangible the intelligence of our cells. We will work with sound, the imagination, creativity and the senses.
