If you are like me- you may have spent thousands of dollars in groups or hung around with people who were focused on "healing."  I shared with my clients how alive I felt in my solo performance class where no one was trying to fix or heal me.  What would happen for you if you stopped trying to heal or fix something about yourself? 

No one really opens up when it feels like people are trying to fix or heal them. Artists create from the material (experiences) that other people don't really want to look at or feel.  Brouhaha is for you if you appreciate when people are direct with you.     

That thing you are trying to fix or heal?  It's time to express what you have bottled up inside you.  Feelings that you bottle up inside you become toxic. They are not toxic to begin with.  Each feeling - even the ones some people label "negative" are pointing you towards your message. 

The thing you are calling a wound?  It's your deepest gift.  The family or place you grew up in may not have known how to help you develop it or they could have felt threatened or afraid of that talent, quality or gift. The journey with your "wound" is to own that talent or gift no matter how the people around you feel about it and USE it fully in the world.

We may think we need "healed" when what we need is to "hear" what we have not wanted to hear or have been dismissing.  Have you ever heard yourself saying -  that doesn't make sense, that's not logical or what would people think if I did that?  Write down everything you've heard from your guidance that you dismissed using one of those phrases or one of your own. 

That nagging sense that something is missing?  It's not missing, it's right there waiting for you to make the hidden aspects of yourself visible.

What would happen for you if you came to Brouhaha?  You will discover your truth aka the message you are here to share.  You will begin to love what you have been told is unlovable about you.  You will start telling your whole story- not just the parts that allow you to wait until you are "healed" in order to fully live your purpose. 

Brouhaha is about being your whole self.  We are not trying to heal you.  

Have you played this game?
Once I heal/transform ____________, then I can ___________.
At Brouhaha we raise the stakes.  We play ...
Once I take this action __________, I will feel _____________.
* courageous, alive, excited, joyous, that I found my home/place in the world, proud of myself ...

Everyone leading a workshop at Brouhaha will be sharing about how "transformation" came for them AFTER they did something they were afraid to do.  Courage is an action.  We can't tell you how to do it.  There are no instruction manuals for being authenthic.  We take action when we are around people who are doing what they want to do and who won't accept excuses for inaction. 

Brouhaha was created with the energy of Scorpio and Snake.  Snake sheds skins they have outgrown. Snake is still snake after the skin is shed. We are becoming more of who we already are inside by freeing ourselves of the old skin - not transforming into some other person.

Courage is an action. 

On October 10th Jupiter moved into Scorpio which represents expansion through bringing what's hidden to light I would LOVE to have you at Brouhaha 2017. 

Brouhaha and Denise's commitment is to clear sight and you speaking and living your personal truth.  Clear sight may mean not being able to "see" for awhile, so you learn to trust your body's knowing.

Brouhaha is about helping you break down whatever barriers, defenses and walls you have put up to keep your WHOLE self hidden.  Why would we hide our whole self?  Some of us are afraid of getting hurt, some of us were told we are too much, too dark, need too much attention - and we may start to believe that and feel bad about certain aspects of ourselves.  

Brouhaha exists to help YOU speak your truth - the truth that you made have been told you need to "heal" or water down.  The truth that people may have told you that you were crazy, imagining or making up when you spoke it for the first time.  Not trusting what you know, being afraid that you are "making it up" - can shut down your imagination and your creativity.

Wonder- Wounded.  There's a gift marking in the hand that talks about having your sense of awe, innocence joy and wonder wounded.  We can only be "wounded" in an area where we are deeply gifted.  So why the wounding?  So we can share our wisdom about how we trusted that we were gifted in that area and how we may have had to fight to fully own and express that gift. 

How was your sense of wonder wounded?  Remember being a child and being told it's not polite to stare when you were simply curious about a someone's birthmark, crutches, color, nose etc?  You may have been have told it was okay to be curious or feel a sense of wonder about certain things but not about others.  Brouhaha aims to help you restore YOUR whole spectrum of wonder.  

At Brouhaha we are curious and filled with Wonder about all kinds of "taboo" topics and feelings. The workshops will help you become more joyous, playful, curious, wonderful and wholly and fully you. 

The Night sky is brilliant with Illuminating Stars made visible only because of the Dark of the Sky.  Light is not greater or better than Dark both are necessary in order for us to feel whole.  At Brouhaha we understand that magic is created by the Union of Opposites - by feeling the tension created when strong and soft, masculine and feminine and light and dark meet. We are not afraid of contrast.  Contrast illuminates.  Hiding parts of yourself only leads to false illumination.
