NOURISHING THE ROOTS OF WELLNESS AND THE HEART OF RESILIENCE
The Storydancer Project (TSP) serves individuals, families and communities facing challenging life circumstances by providing innovative everyday self-care movement programs that generate joy, cultivate greater health and resilience, and enliven self-worth and heart-centered leadership.
TSP serves girls, women, children and families, indigenous communities, health centers, survivors of domestic abuse, school children and teachers, and those suffering from the effects of trauma.
TSP works in partnership with organizations and communities locally and globally.
TSP collaborates to create sustainable, train-the-trainer programs that provide the most effective long-term support for our partnering communities.
TSP is an international 501(c)(3) artistic health resource organization, based in Santa Fe, NM, which offers its programs free of charge to the communities it serves.
Through Network for Good’s secure site
TSP was created in 2001 by ZULEIKHA to address the lack of wellness education and resources for girls and women locally and internationally and to bring rejuvenation, leadership and self-care skills to girls, women, children, families and communities.
OUR CORE WELLNESS MODEL
TSP’s Core Wellness Exercise and Movement Arts Model incorporates exercise, movement, rhythm, music and story to develop a resilient and enlivened sense of self, strengthen participants’ connection to their bodies and establish a sound foundation for joy and health.
