Keynote Speaker & Workshop Presenter
The Cauldron and the Spoon
Julia M. Hayes, MA is a spiritual contemplative, a sage of Alchemy and the owner of Souls Center, LLC, a Spiritual Classroom in Spokane, Washington, whose focus is the cultivation of SoulFul living through movement, creativity, and community. Julia’s role at Souls Center is as a soul advisor, which simply means she facilitates circles of women, workshops, and classes that enable women to stand in their power by speaking with vulnerability and listening to their own inner knowing. Julia’s practices are not governed by religious dogma of any kind. However, she recognizes that the suppression of Feminine Divinity and the spiritual earth-based magical arts that resonate strongly with most women has been to the detriment of all living beings, most especially Mother Earth.
Julia’s teachings are designed to bring people into the wonderful awareness of Chief Seattle when he said, Man did not weave the web life. He is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.
Julia is devoted to guiding women back to the heart and soul of themselves. It is time for Herstory to be heard.
Interplay: Unlocking the Wisdom of the Body
Linda Lee has been a dancer all her life. She’s the kind of person who bounced to the music at two and has been in tune to the music in one-way or another ever since. Linda discovered the insight, fun and connection possible with InterPlay in 2008 and this awareness brought movement and dance to a new level that includes sharing stories and the beauty of pause and stillness. Leading InterPlay in Missoula for the past six years has grounded Linda in the knowledge that group play, movement, witnessing and story telling are powerful ways to bring us into our bodies. InterPlay creates precious connection, laughter and more ease in her life and she is happy to share it with women celebrating our 25th anniversary in Boulder.
Linda believes sharing moments of intimacy, silliness, connection and getting to be together like kids again through InterPlay builds our sense of community ~ healing the world and ourselves in the process.
Linda has worked as a massage therapist, community organizer, supervisor of a large public health program and an organizational consultant. She is also a certified InterPlay Leader.
The Awakened Eye: Drawing/Seeing as Meditation
Lisa has degrees in Art and Education. She has traveled extensively, working as a classroom teacher, scuba diving guide, and as a disaster relief program aide and coordinator. In 2005, she started a post-tsunami relief program in Thailand, with support of Bozeman schools and businesses, and with the help of volunteers was able to provide and share art, music, and puppet theatre with many survivors, mainly children. She went on to volunteer in a program in northern Thailand to advocate for children who are victims of child trafficking. She has found any and all art processes to be hugely beneficial to these programs. Through-out her life, she has found Art as a Way of living in a tumultuous world, integrating past experiences, recovery/self-renewal, and authentic sharing with others. She is passionate about breaking down old stigmas related to the arts and joyfully exploring this with others.
