Dancing Through Your Inner Journey
This special workshop will be taught by Cathyria Finet and Marina Salonga. During this week, participants will be introduced to the teachings of the Inca Medicine Wheel, a powerful tool for self-transformation and healing. This work will be anchored by movement and physical expression, using techniques drawing from various artistic styles. Each cardinal direction of the medicine wheel carries our potential for higher manifestation. Here we tap into the inner cosmology of our becoming, and learn to transform our wounds and inner shadows into sources of compassion and strength. By connecting with our physical bodies in a free and creative way, we allow ourselves to integrate these teachings at a cellular level. Movement is a powerful vehicle for release on both physical and emotional levels, and we will use it as a way to guide our healing.
The sessions will consist of:
- Journeying – shamanic instruments, soul and destiny retrieval
- Ceremonial Work – sand-painting, fire ceremony
- Gentle Movement – dance, partner stretching, massage, poi, aerial tissue
In order to explore different ways of immersing oneself within each of the shamanic and movement approaches, workshops will be given by Cathyria and Marina both jointly and separately.
NOTE: No prior experience in shamanic work or technical movement training is necessary.
Cathyria has been trained at the Four Winds Society in the Healing Light Body program that focuses on shamanic healing approaches from the ancient Inca tradition. She has spent time in Peru with the Shipibo tribe of the Amazon as well as in the Huichol lands in the desert of Northern Mexico, all of which have helped her further her understanding the medicine wheel and plant spirit medicine. She has also received and been certified to give the Munay-Ki rites which are powerful energetic transitions which heal at the DNA level. Cathyria offers personal shamanic healing sessions in Montreal, Canada.

Marina is a professional dancer and circus artist as well as massage therapist and reiki grandmaster. Committed to self-development and healing for many years, her goal is always for the growth and evolution of her students and clients, whether it be through massage or learning a new way of moving. Having studied so many forms of physical expression throughout her life, she has come to understand that at the core of each is the same thing; it is an expression of our own personal journey, and that through movement, we bring balance to the mind-body connection.
