Welcome to the Teatime Traveller. Come explore the enchanted landscape of the everyday...
Join me for a cup of steamy tea and together we will discover the mystical territories of our own backyards.
Let us embark on a journey that leads us into the realms of the heart, through the mysterious and exotic territory of each new day. This blog is dedicated to the depths and the heights of the simple life, to the soulful and honest quest that comes with being human.

About Nao's Dance Classes
CREATIVE MOVEMENT FOR WOMEN
To dance freely is to begin to release material that cannot be accessed through the vehicle of the intellect. If we let our minds rest for a while and let the wisdom body lead us, something profound can happen. What occurs is a kind of healing that has to do with connecting the heart with the head, and the body with the soul.
Dance is something that human beings have been doing since the beginning of time. Honest expression in the form of dance is deeply rooted in the nature of who we are. Creative movement can be a transformative experience that can lead to upsurges of emotion, and these feelings are doorways to deeper understanding. Our task is to help ourselves and each other to listen and be, without the obstructions of a judging mind and the paralyzing effects of self-consciousness. From here, an awareness opens and the territory of transformation is realized.
In Nao's Classes we look to the earth for guidance.
We ask the elemental energies of earth, water, fire, and air, to support us, as we journey inward, and then outward, toward relating to one another.
These classes are open to all women who feel inspired by this form. There is no previous dance experience necessary, just an open mind and a willingness to experience oneself moving freely for a while.
