Millions of women courageously shared their history of sexual assault and trauma sparked by the “me too” movement. In this episode, Hannah Blake advises how to embody this process for an opportunity to keep moving towards healing using more than words. Hannah identifies that body awareness, meditation, spontaneous expression, and nature are powerful embodiment tools in all healing processes.
Hannah is a professional dancer and movement guide. She trained professionally with masters across the world, including the Bolshoi and Kirov Academies, and danced with Complexions Contemporary. During her academic endeavors at UCLA and her dance teaching careers, dance organically became much more of a healing modality than a performing art. Hannah began intuitively weaving her knowledge of prana, cellular memory, meditation and expressive arts into her own process and with her students. As class became more about improvisation, inner exploration, and connecting community, both she and her students began having enormous personal and health breakthroughs. This path of harnessing dance as a form of collective and personal healing led her to founding the Kaia Method.
