About Us


What do a wise witch, wandering Chexican, and a suburban housewife have in common?  Well, in this case the answer is we are all part of The Vibrance Collective!  What started out as SpiritDance, SoulSong is now an international platform that synthesizes cross-cultural healing modalities into a series of unique and impactful approaches to wellness.  Ellen Watson, Daphne Tse and Ashley  Johnson bring their creative and healing gifts together and invite you to the dance floor of life and the symphony of yourself.
