 The June Tap Into Transformation celebrates the gift of direct connection to the divinity and joy in us, and the expression of that joy as it comes through our bodies and through a group of people moving together in rhythms and sounds that we create in community… and in tap shoes!!

 THAT IS THE FIRE…

Come help us create a bonfire… and feel the joy that arises when we get out of our own way,move our bodies, tap our feet and send our passion into the world!

      Join husband and wife duo Dr. Jeannine Goode-Allen and Dr. David Sharp in an evening of transformational song, poetry and tap dancing in our gorgeous and inspiring Viriditas Studio in North Boulder. You will laugh, smile and stomp your feet while feeling the joy of moving your body and opening your heart to awe, wonder, beauty, gratitude and more.

We will teach you some basic tap steps, and with these tools, we will journey into our hearts to praise, complain, thank and bless.

Viriditas Newsletter, May

Greetings Viriditas Community!

In the Land of Viriditas, the month of April was especially inspired by the Archangel Michael. In the name of my favorite Archangel, I would first like to share the exciting news for those of you who would like to hear Psalm 91 and the other original scores from Feathers On The Breath Of God. You can now purchase the CD newly released on CD Baby and iTunes for your listening pleasure!

Archangel Michael was especially influential at our April 5th Tap Into Transformation. It was a powerful evening filled with extraordinary grace! The inspiration for the creation of the choreography for that evening came to David from Archangel Michael the day before in the shower. After teaching us the choreography that evening, David was asked by one of the participants if they could shower at our house in the future!

The Watcher

My favorite moment was feeling the power of the “God Step” as all the taps hit the floor with the scuff at the same time. The group was inspired by that night’s Archangelic presence, and we started creating our own group Angelic Tap Prayer. Everyone left the evening prepared to share this power and inspiration with the world. What a BLESSING!

Two days later on April 7th, David and I gave a presentation at the Most Precious Blood Church in Denver. We presented our new choreography for the upcoming July performance of Feathers On The Breath Of God at the Bas Bleu Theater in Fort Collins, CO. This choreography continues the Archangelic theme with David dancing as Archangel Michael. People were so moved by the dancing that after the presentation, they referred to David as “the Archangel!”

The folks at Most Precious Blood were especially interested in Hildegard’s Medicine. The parsley heart wine and nerve cookies went quickly and people were asking for her remedies for illnesses ranging from cancer to Parkinson’s Disease.

Once again the community at Most Precious Blood Church swept us away with their kindness, enthusiasm and open hearts. David and I LOVE THIS CHURCH! A special thanks to Rita Mailander who brought us down to present for the second time. Rita’s supportive words are still ringing in my heart: “Jeannine, your presentation on St. Hildegard is joy for the senses. You display beautiful art work and dioramas of the period and create an atmosphere that makes us feel St. Hildegard’s presence reaching through the centuries. You sing the praises of St. Hildegard and transport us into the reverence and awe of the abbey. Your passion and devotion to the Saint is evident in this marvelous presentation.”

And so the journey continues… On May 1st David and I started rehearsals for Feathers On The Breath Of God with the core quintet cast. This includes myself, David, Lisa DeVeux, our stage manager and costume designer, and the three Sacred Women: Audrey Gunn, Missy Seelig and Heidi Pachner. All six of us are learning the steps to Psalm 91 as part of the choreography for the grand finale. What a sweet time we are having. Be sure to get your tickets now. This round of Feathers is not to be missed!

Finally, a reminder to those of you in the Denver area. Please join me at St. Paul United Methodist Church and Interspiritual Community this coming Sunday, May 19th at 5pm.

Well dear community, as you feel the warmth of the May Sun, may you also feel the warmth and powerful love of the Archangel Michael… As you feel his energy, know that more than anything, at this time in our evolution as a species, he is inspiring us to create in the name of GOD.

Love to each and every one of YOU,

In Viriditas,

Illumination: The Person In Sapphire Blue

Cropped person saphire blueThis is perhaps the most well known of St. Hildegard’s Illuminations.

Here are the words from her Scivius that describe what she saw and heard:

“I saw a very bright light, and inside it there was a person who was the color of a sapphire. This person and bright light were completely surrounded by a very pleasant fire of reddish color. The very bright light completely surrounded this fire of reddish color, and at the same time this fire completely surrounded the light. Both the fire and the light surrounded the person, existing as one light with one force of potentiality. And then I heard the Living Light speak to me.”

It said:
‘The bright light signifies God who is without any blemish of illusion, defect, and falsehood.’
‘The person signifies the Word who is without blemish of hard-heartedness, ill will and unfairness.’
‘The fire signifies the Holy Spirit who is without any blemish of dryness, death and darkness.’

What would it be like to be this person in sapphire blue, surrounded by the fire and the light?!

What would it feel like to let this force of potentiality… a force that is about truth, love, compassion, fairness,  juiciness, life and light, in?

In Viriditas,
Jeannine
