Tahya is a true artist as well as a gifted communicator.

conductor, and multi-instrumentalist.

After observing the profound 'healing' taking place with Tahya's students who are Cancer survivors, I was instantly moved and realized the urgency to spread the word to therapeutic communities at large. Without reservation I endorse Tahya's work as a beautiful, effective complement to any traditional therapy model.

Tahya made us all feel special. 
We danced with veils, tapped the rhythm on frame drums, 
and connected to movements rich in women's history and healing rituals.

I think it's wonderful... It doesn't hurt what I've done [as a surgeon] - it complements it.
I helped treat the cancer, this has helped (my patient's) mind and spirit.

As a lyme disease victim, I found this dance to be very beneficial in my recovery.
It has helped me to put aside all other things, just for a moment . . . 
and focus on myself ~ mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. 
Tahya has a special gift that she graciously shares with others.

- Joan Orchard
Lehigh Valley, PA
Tahya creates a template that we can translate to any challenge. 
By encouraging us to explore the wisdom of the goddess archetypes via the ancient arts of dancing and drumming, we are able to mindfully connect with our own inner wisdom and shed light on our everyday issues revealing a healing pathway.
