ABOUT THE FACILITATORS
ALL MATTERS OF SPIRIT // BAELYN
Baelyn grew up in Los Angeles studying dance from the time she was 4. This affinity with movement provided a doorway into her relationship with spirit, health and the body. She has since journeyed into deeper connections with Self through studying Yoga, Tea and Meditation. She has been influenced by teachers such as; Tea Master Wu De, Saul David Raye, S.N. Goenka, and Sweet Medicine Nation. In the past few years, her path has evolved toward deepening her relationship to Mother Earth through ceremonial work. Holding space with song and rhythm have become key elements in her work with the Sacred Feminine, and Tea the anchor to ground and cultivate the space of stillness. Whether serving traditional Tea Ceremonies, or holding ritual space through sound and drum, for her, these paths are ways of being a vessel for spirit and consciousness. Following her intuition has continued to lead her from one form of movement to another; from the intensely structured world of Ballet, to the quiet grace of a tea ceremony, or the wild rhythms of the Spiral Dance, Spirit speaks through her in the language of movement. It is a serendipitous occasion then that her received tea name, “Tien Wu” translates to “Heavenly Dance”.
