OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | Workshop: Creativity and Abundance: An examination of your financial mindset and its effect on your creative potential 

This workshop shares my current reflections on a year of deeply examining the mindset and universal laws that support prosperity and creativity. In essence, I see creativity as a natural expression of life—it is life-enhancing—and money as an energetic resource that supports this expression. The sooner we can bring awareness to how prosperity is truly operating in our lives, the sooner we can effect change. The more we can understand creativity from a holistic perspective—one that includes the wisdom of our bodies—the more aligned our creative practices can be with the greater good for all. The workshop also draws on my 20+ years of researching somatics, healing, energy medicine, and coaching. We will spend time moving and improvising, examining belief systems, and discussing practical applications of various universal laws towards creating abundantly creative and prosperous lives.

Michelle Boulé is a dance artist and teacher who was based in New York for 20+ years and is currently living nomadically. Her research in energy work, somatic practices, spirituality, and mindset/psychology provides the framework from which she dances, teaches, and makes dances, with a desire to create aesthetically enlivened experiences that remind us of the potential of what and who we are.

She is a “Bessie” Award winning performer, having collaborated with Miguel Gutierrez (2001-16), Bebe Miller, John Jasperse, and Deborah Hay, amongst others. Boulé has received commissions and presentations from The Chocolate Factory, Danspace Project, Triple Canopy, Baryshnikov Arts Center, Summer Stages Dance @ICA Boston, River to River Festival, American Realness, The Met Breuer (with Okkyung Lee), and ISSUE Project Room. Recent awards include: Distinguished Legacy Award from the University of Illinois, New York Foundation for the Arts Choreography Fellowship, Boekelheide Creativity Award, Jerome Foundation Travel & Study Grant, and residencies from LMCC’s Extended Life Dance Development Program, Portland Institute of Contemporary Art, MacDowell, Yaddo, Bemis Center, Movement Research, and Dance Ireland. She teaches internationally and has maintained a private coaching/healing practice since 2008.
