a sacred shift : personal practice year one

$12,957

A Sacred Shift is a book I wrote cataloging the first year of my project Personal Practice, where I publicly document dancing every single day 

So many tiny and giant shifts happened in my life during the past year - and Personal Practice documented every day of it - I always shared full truths but in many ways was vague - and felt drawn to make a catalogue of sorts sharing every place, song, feeling, change, collaborator, and shift.

It's also a call to transition the project from the computer screen to something you can hold in your hands, read to a friend, send to a lover, set under your nightstand and save for later.

I had become accustomed to using Instagram as a mode to share my work at my business Have Company, and felt like a feed dedicated to only dancing would be helpful in staying accountable to myself - and it seemed the only way to really make the shift into "dancing more" was to commit to doing it every single day - even on the days I was so tired, grieving, traveling, missing, lonely, or just didn't feel inspired or "called" to move 

Risks and challenges

The book is about 2 weeks from being totally finished, and then my dear friend Richard will be laying it out into a real life book! This book is being printed 'on demand' with the goal of printing 1,000 copies - so as long as the goal is met that can happen! And if more are desired more can be ordered!

There are always timeline risks, but the hope would be that in 30 days the funds are available, the file will be sent to the printer, and shipped to me so that I can have a friend or two get together and we will ship them all over the world by the first week of December
