Josie Keys – Tantric Belly dance teacher and Dancer
Josie holds workshops in the US and Australia on Reclaiming Your Feminine Power. She leads women to discover their hidden gifts and activates their Shakti – the feminine essence of the divine contained in our female bodies – through the practice of Tantric Belly dancing. Finding her Shakti was a life transforming experience into self-love. Connecting deeply with her body and her sensitivity, she discovered her deep feminine self and then began to share that wisdom.
She has been on a consistent spiritual path for 20 years, studying yoga, astrology, ecstatic dance and Tantric dance for women, becoming a teacher in 2006. She is an artist too, with a long career as a commercial photographer informing her current Goddess painting and graphic design (she designed the artwork for ‘Moving into Grace’)
Josie understands deep dark nights of the soul, and the heights of ecstasy. Knowing that there is a pulsating force that can be awoken through our bodies she shares with us how to feel every moment through our divine feminine selves, and how we can turn every moment into its full aliveness.
