Special Guest Speaker Jill Ouikahilo
Jill was born into a life of athletics. From an early age, she began to express interest in moving her body by becoming highly involved in sports, and had successful high school and college athletic careers.
During her freshman year in college, she became sick with an eating disorder. The disease nearly destroyed her athletic and academic careers, but more importantly, almost took her life. Jill’s survival drastically changed the course of her life, leading her on an adventurous path to self-discovering passions and purpose she could have never anticipated.
Jill has been studying and performing African dance and drum for 13 years, as well as other dance forms, such as Salsa, Samba, Belly Dance, and Indian Classical Dance. Her calling is teaching people of all ages how to connect with their true selves through the movement of the body. When she’s not teaching her weekly dance and drum class at Wacheva Dance & Drum Studio located in the Westcott Nation, she can be found writing her thoughts, reading nourishing content, listening to friends and music, watching films, or soaking up any element of nature. Her guiding intention each day is to, “follow the purity of our greatness, so that it will lead us to the riches of our desires.”Check out Jill here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-7gtbquWnM
