I am Dan Phelps. I am a father, a husband, a tree hugging soil worshiper, a farmer (semi-retired), a mason (in-training), an artist, a dancer, etc.
I use art to convey concepts and express feelings I find difficult to articulate with words: unseen forces, the flow of energy, the dance of light and dark, the balance of life and death/growth and decay, ecological interdependence, mystical exploration, spiritual connection, harmony, inspiration, enchantment, transcendence, love.
These are best experienced rather than explained. Art is one way in which I explore these subjects. A deep connection to and relationship with the natural world is another. Dance is yet another. I am honored to share this body of work at Be Moved Studio, a sanctuary in which I have been endlessly inspired. Many of these pieces are directly influenced by my relationship to this space and the people whom I share the dance floor with on a weekly basis. Blessings.
By appt. until Mar 1, 2020

Join us as we spend time connecting to our breath and our bodies. Our breath is our vital life-force energy that has great healing power. Let’s relax, release, and let go. We All have the innate capacity to heal ourselves. Breathwork is a deeply profound experiential experience that allows for us to release what is no longer serving us…emotionally, physically, mentally, and energetically. We tend to “hold on” to things in our bodies on all levels and most of the time we are unaware of how to move it or maybe even understand why we have this block, pain, or stuck-ness. When we engage deeply with the breath, we allow for us to move through the holding patterns into a deep releasing space.
“Breath is the link between mind and body.” -Dan Brule

Monthly Gathering with Jennifer Welch
Lawrence Women’s Temple is a sacred space that we create for ourselves and our sisters when we come together with a shared intention of spiritual awakening. In Temple, we do not sit around and talk about what we think embodied awakening is, instead we practice stepping directly into a real, lived awakening as we move our awareness from the mental stories we tell ourselves about who we are in the world, into our breath, our bodies and the felt sense of the moment as it arises and moves through us. In Temple, we give ourselves time and space to be breathed and moved by the feminine waters within.
A Taste of our Temple Practices
The 2019/2020 season will be an open circle, so you can attend once, twice or all eight times that we meet.
Lawrence Women’s Temple is based on the work of Chameli Ardagh and Awakening Women Institute. Much of our practice is based on Chameli’s work.
PLEASE NOTE – The Women’s temple is not a therapy or a support group. It is a space where we come to mirror, celebrate and empower each other. A space where we can drop our masks, and let the beauty of our authentic face be seen in all its glory and pain, passion and vulnerability. In our Women’s temple, we meet beyond the personal, and in this expanded meeting the collective feminine as well as the personal feminine is healed and celebrated.
If these practices speak to you, we would love to have you join us in circle. If you have any additional questions, please contact me at 785-760-7259.
