Fifteen years ago I was given a promotional video to watch about Turning the Wheel Productions, an intergenerational dance/theater company in Boulder, Co.
As I watched this thirty minute piece, tears streamed down my checks.
Lizzi doing what she loves to do most.
Tears that let me know I had found my home and my life’s work that I didn’t even know I was looking for.
Tears of knowing what my spirit had been silently crying out for.
Tears of inspiration about the founder of this organization who so brilliantly combined the things I cared most about, dance, community organizing and personal healing.
I called the number on the video and flew to San Francisco the following weekend for a Turning the Wheel urban retreat and have been working, playing, performing, teaching, learning and impacting lives with this wild, loving tribe ever since. I am eternally grateful to have found a safe and ever-evolving container to keep knowing and loving myself deeper and deeper. I feel so blessed to have found tools for building healthy, vibrant, collaborative, conscious and loving community.
-Lizzi Juda, Founder of Turning the Wheel Missoula
