My sisters, near and far…
Welcome to a virtual sanctuary of love.
After 20 glorious years serving women, locally and globally, as a guide to sacred feminine knowing, embodiment and joy through my award-winning ecstatic dance practice, “Dance Our Way Home”, facilitator trainings, workshops, retreats, live-streaming broadcasts, and 1 on 1 mentoring - calling out the light in myself and other women, goddesses in their own right…
And a more recent personal journey with physical pain, my path has led me to the creation of this new website and the arrival of my first published books - a close to three year project - “She Reflects: A Spiral Journey for the Feminine Soul”, and her sister companion, “She Reflects Journal & Colouring Book”! (See the photos from my book launch held in Toronto, Nov. 4, 2018.)
She Reflects is a love letter and a call to action for compassionate and courageous healing and reflection, for you, for me, for us. Born out of a full heart, broken-down body and weary soul, with much asking and listening in for guidance, She Reflects is living proof that pain, loss and vulnerability can (and will) be transformed into art, creativity and healing.
Based on the spiral path of Dance Our Way Home, and my life, She Reflects is a spiral journey with Eight Turns (chapters) designed to evoke more curiosity, compassion, creativity and courage.
Each Turn - Listen, Follow Your Impulse, The Partner Dance, Collective Joy, The Magic of Letting Go, Touch the Wild, Return to Self, and Share Your Light - has it’s own unique personal stories, reflections, and practices - expressive, healing and inspirational prompts and exercises. Plus…
As you move through She Reflects, you’re sweetly invited to listen and step into your innate wisdom and inner knowing of your body, heart and soul, to uncover, reconnect to, and fully express your MAGNIFICENCE - a radical act of remembrance and reclamation of your original power, wisdom and radiance.
In 40+ years of practicing creative, healing and spiritual arts, spanning four continents and countless countries, I’ve come to learn that we are the experts in our own lives. Each of us, individually, have our own innate wisdom which we can call upon to bring ourselves into the light. We have wonderful counsellors, yogis and teachers in our lives, sharing their wisdom. Yet, for each of one of us to shine our own, unique light, the search begins within.
I know that the most BRILLIANT part of you is ready to be called forward into full expression. And as a deeply loving and sensitive soul, what a blessing you will be to everyone whose lives you touch, and to the planet as a whole!
“Part adventure tale, part guidebook, part meandering jazz that takes us where we need to go, She Reflects mirrors the lightness and darkness of being human. Drawing on her own experience as dancer, teacher, and an embodiment of the Sacred Feminine, Erica Ross invites us to live it all: the mess and the magnificence; the poetry and the power; the stillness and the dance.” -- Oriah "Mountain Dreamer" House, author of the bestseller, The Invitation
Erica brings deep love, care and magic to everything she does. She touches the hearts of the women she works with deeply, holding their lives, their gifts and potential as sacred. In doing so, she treats them as flowers ready to unfold, helping them to gently and courageously open to themselves, to a community of sisters and to the greater currents of life." -- Marilyn Daniels, Leadership Coach, Toronto www.wisdomleadershipstudio.com
Erica has a beautiful gentle way of drawing you into the world of dance and deepening the connection with one's own body and a circle of other amazing women." -- Michelle Tocher, Author and Storyteller, Toronto www.wonderlit.com
Can words even begin to express how much I love and respect Erica Ross and all her offerings? I think she's one of the undiscovered gems in Canada. Erica is a woman I wish I could introduce all women to. She helps women bloom just by being who she is. She provides safe and transformational spaces for women, inspiring them to live a life more full of beauty, wonder, kindness and openness. Her workshops are a beautiful mix of movement, dance, guided imagery, creative expression, poetry and beauty. She feeds the souls of women and the soul of the world through the beauty of who she is and what she does.If you know a woman who is beautiful and doesn't understand just how beautiful she is - send her to Erica. If you want to support any woman in blossoming even more into who she is - send them to Erica. If you love dance, safe spaces with women and the idea of living a life more full of beauty, wonder, kindness and openness - check this out. I've witnessed her as a well-loved and respected teacher and community-builder, a visionary, a successful heart-centered solo entrepreneur. Erica is one of the most consistently, naturally radiant women I know. She gets my whole hearted endorsement." -- Tad Hargrave, Founder of Marketing for Hippies, Edmonton www.marketingforhippies.com
