“I’m a dancer. My stage name is Clairity. I do hip-hop and tribal fusion. Dance expresses so much. It’s a heart-based experience. It changes energetically and inspires a higher way of being. It’s a communication beyond words. A channeling of the goddess Isis, particularly. She was the first Egyptian healer, and she’s being revitalized in different ways now. Dance is her rebirth. I process emotions through dance, I share joy through dance. I’m called to lead a movement through movement.”
“I’m a cat. I’m a chilliger, a real chilliger. A cheetah, lion, tiger. I travel to festivals with my two Siamese cats on leashes, and I got a little famous from it. So I named my brand After Meowerz. I went on a journey for two years. I rescued these cats from a homeless shelter, and I brought them to the coolest places in the country. They loved it. They would fall asleep in my backpack, and I would rage. We have this beautiful connection. They’re like my children. They saved my life.”
“Where do I think I should be going? I’m a barista. I wanted to my own coffee shop for the longest time. Now, I’ve hit a point where I’m wondering if it’s still right for me. Do I want to serve people? Do I want to bake goods for the rest of my life? No. Because then I’m not going to be happy baking at my own house. And I want that to be something I enjoy doing for other people. What would be more fulfilling than giving people a good cup of coffee every day? That was fulfilling a couple years ago, but it’s starting to wear on me. I’m looking into forestry. That’s where the world is going. And my path is changing, too.”
“Yoga can do so much if you stay disciplined and dedicated to it. I practice for one hour every day, and I don’t miss it, even at festivals. I’m a trauma-informed yoga instructor and I have my own private practice in Colorado. I offer specialized yoga for your body. I do one-on-one work with people, where I sit them down and try to understand their emotions. Certain emotions can respond to relaxation, and I can help work through those triggers with a physical release. I teach with a therapist and we move through the problem together. Yoga encompasses mind, body, and spirit, and when you add psychology, it doubles the healing. I call it reflective movement.”
“I love traveling with Shabbat tent to festivals. It provides me with the opportunity to feel like I don’t need to miss out on some of my greatest experiences because of religious restrictions. In fact, it allows me to use my beliefs to elevate the experience for myself and those around me. Whenever I attend a festival, I try to make sure I embody the spirit of my forefather Abraham and open my tent up on all sides. Being there to help those in need, whether it be a with food, a cup of water, or just a soul to connect with, I believe that is a necessary purpose at these things… but at the end of the day, I just really enjoy making people around me happy.”
