OUR ROOTS

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.

 

OUR FOUNDER AND DIRECTOR

International performer, teacher and wellness educator, ZULEIKHA, is renowned worldwide for her innovative and transformative performances and self-care work in movement arts. Zuleikha’s extensive performance and teaching background in dance, music, meditation and healing arts have shaped her profound and alive free-movement expression. The scope of her work ranges from Rumi Concert collaborations with poet Coleman Barks and world musicians, to self-care and wellness work through her international non-profit organization, The Storydancer Project, with palliative care cancer patients, women, children, and families in challenging life circumstances.

 

Zuleikha is a recipient of the Images and Voices of Hope Media Award for outstanding work in the world promoting positive personal and social change and the winner of the prestigious Humanitarian Award from Pediatric Nursing Journal for her global work with women and children. Zuleikha works with thousands of people worldwide: civil war and tsunami orphans in Sri Lanka; women and children with health and trauma needs in Israel and Palestine; cancer patients, daughters of sex workers, and women under the burka in India; and with school children in the USA. Zuleikha offers Core Wellness & Movement Arts self-care trainings for health care professionals of all kinds. She has taught and trained nurses, doctors, psychologists and teachers on the wholeness of being human, integrating body, mind and spirit in the art of self-care. She teaches and performs at diverse venues, including wellness gatherings, schools, healthcare facilities, women’s programs, and healthcare conferences. Zuleikha is the creator and author of Take a Minute for Your Life™, an exercise program to increase vitality and resilience. www.storydancer.com
