Rekindle Your Wild Joy and Deep Belonging to the Earth

Last Dance (for awhile) in Santa Rosa July 14, 2011

Filed under: Announcements,Dance — BrujaHa @ 6:11 pm

Soon I’ll be moving to Boulder, Colorado to begin teaching ecopsychology at Naropa University.

After having been here in Sebastopol, CA for seven years now, I’ve run the gamut of emotions about this huge impending life change, from the story entitled, “I’ll Just Apply for the Job and Then See What Happens…” to “Waah! I Don’t Want to Leave My Friends!!” to “How the Heck Did I Get Myself Into This?” (includes the sequel about moving, “OMG I Have A Lot of Books”) to “Wow, I Get to Teach Ecopsychology at Naropa!”

So many things have happened – if I get time, or feel like procrastinating from packing boxes, I may write about it.

For now, I just want to announce for those of you in the North Bay Area of CA that on Friday night I’ll be calling the Santa Rosa contra dance on Friday with my favorite band, StringFire – and beforehand, this sweet North Bay dance community is throwing me a farewell potluck. Come if you can for one last-for-now hug, twirl, tear.

    Wish i could! Thanks for the invite though. Naropa will be a wonderful experience – that we will actually talk about sometime soon! 🙂

    (Facebook link 05 July) Sorry I will be running the Palo Alto English that night.

    (Facebook link, 27 June) Oh wow, Em and Moira – I’m so touched! Thank you! It’s already so hard to leave you folks here, & this makes it even more poignant. I’ll call that night with lumps in my throat.

    Wish I could make it. Chances of making it to Santa Rosa from the Peninsula by 6:00 pm on a Friday night are just nil, and I can’t take that day off to do it. Tina will be in my heart throughout.

      Well, hope you can make it for the dance – she’ll be calling and visiting at the break! 🙂

    Unfortunately, a family emergency has come up and I won’t be able to make it after all. So sorry to not be able to say farewell properly and give you a big hug. Wah! I’ll look you up in Boulder when I’m out visiting family. Have a wonderful time and “onward” to the next adventure! 🙂
