A bit about me, Judith…
Creatrix of Dancing in deLight
I am a light dancer, myth weaver, so*journ guide, and SOMAtic therapist who LOVES the body, the SOMA, who finds delight in all cycles of life, who feels beauty while laughing, weeping, singing, dancing, longing, creating, and even raging. I guess what you could say is I follow whatever my soul needs to express… without apology. At least more often than not.
I am always in process
And what I can say for sure is that I love the freedom of moving energy through my body, breathing in the sensual and the erotic, and creating incomprehensible beauty. To soak in the sweet nectar of life, to dance with the plants, the animals, and elements, and to play with the shadows and twirl in the mystery. Do I sometimes feel fear? Absolutely! Though there is something about fear that has always elicited wonder… as if it’s inviting me into a world of the wild and chaotic, perhaps into my next initiation where I am asked to surrender and to trust my intuition a little bit more. It is in this space where I’ve become more acquainted with a long-lost soul aspect. A seed that has been waiting to bloom for a very long time. My LOVE of myth and story-dancing, creating soul journeys that are deeply infused with magic and archetypes of The Sacred.
My life’s mission
has been to help others explore these realms as well, and to feel the beauty in all their life cycles… creating ritual through meaning-making that is based in ancient feminine wisdom and that follows and honors the earth’s natural rhythm and cycles. As I continue along my healing journey and help the collective through this great paradigm shift, I’d love to assist you in remembering your mythic and magical Self… to express yourself freely by listening to your own rhythm and cycles, to breathe in the deliciousness of life, and to create beauty in all your experiences.
A bit about Miwa
Faery Queen of Harmony
Miwa and I have journeyed through many lifetimes together. In this lifetime, she has come to me in feline form, a joy-filled Japanese bobtail whose larger-than-life energy fills an entire room. She has helped me to remember the potency of this over time… and even more so since 2019, when she flew through the veils of light. She is my greatest teacher and reminds me to whole-heartedly sip in the sweet essence of every moment… without apology. She has shown me how to dance with shadows and to remember to be light and free while still embodied (sometimes I am way too serious!). She exudes harmony, sensitivity, resilience, fierceness, and unconditional love, and she is a most integral part of Dancing in deLight. (And she loves that I’ve taken up more space on this page than her as we’ve been working toward this for a very long time! 😊 )
Those of us along this journey are aware that our greatest teacher is our heart… to allow our heart to crack open again and again to illuminate what is hidden and help us remember our truest most vibrant Self. Embodied presence and experience are the vessels by which our hearts remember.
For those of you curious about some of my more ‘formal’ credentialed experiences, I’ve created a short list below.

- Ordained Healing Minister- All-embracing
- Master Program in Light Language – the Sacred Masculine
I’ve had the honor of assisting many souls over the past 3.5 decades… holding sacred space for many who have experienced deep trauma. I have worked with souls addicted to opioids, still growing in the womb of their mother, and with children, teens, and adults of all ages and challenges, assisting them in transmuting their trauma imprints and repressed patterns of belief, helping them to remember their authentic power… their inner sanctum of light that continues to flicker no matter the level of atrocity. I’ve worked in very vile conditions… environments that did not feel suitable for any form of life.
In the last decade or so, I have shifted the intention for my practice to one of deeper creativity, magic, and embodiment. This has opened a whole new portal… for me and for my clients. I’ve observed huge leaps in transformation that are filled with lightness, freedom, and joy. Together we explore their body and authenticity through the lens of myths and archetypes and through a container of ritual and honor of all soul parts. We also explore their fears and shadows, or more hidden aspects, from a curious and playful presence, assisting them to surrender to the entire process of alchemy: birth, life, death, and rebirth as a sacred journey of divine remembrance.
And through all these experiences… I can honestly say how grateful I am to have witnessed the incredible resilience of the soul… a very important initiation for my own personal journey… learning to forgive and trust again… trust in others, trust in Life, trust in my Self. This is my growth edge. And this is what these beautiful souls have shown me through their unwavering courageous spirits.
