Relish in the art of being you.

Glad you landed here

My name is Samar Linn. My work as a counselor + catalyst was born out of my personal journey to live life abundantly which led me down a track of personal and professional inquiry. I have a breadth of training and certifications including 5Rhythms® dance meditation, integrative coaching, art therapy, body work and decades of experience navigating the corporate world, too.

More about me

Individual Sessions

Based on your intentions for counseling, we use a mix of techniques that lead to tangible, practical evolution in your daily life. I draw from a range of cognitive (mind) and somatic (body) training to guide you. Together, we explore your most effective discovery tools such as talk-counseling, bodywork, art therapy, visualization, movement.

5Rhythms Dance Meditation

5Rhythms is dynamic practice that fuses dance, expression and meditation in the same breath. This dance lab is full of juicy music and entices you into spontaneous and freeing movement. When we allow our bodies its full range of experience, our minds become still and we find inner peace, greater courage and joy to feel more at home in our beings.

The KIX Project

The KIX project is an open, real and safe space to investigate addictions. I have developed a special and specific combination of group sharing, exercises and dance based on my personal journey in conjunction with professional work. KIX is for anyone who has a suspicion that addiction is an issue, who knows their addiction(s) well, who is in recovery. KIX is also for anyone who want to understand their shadows that can lead into addiction, too. Although there are various motivations, what we all have in common is curiosity on the topic of addiction, co-addiction or compulsions.

Collaborations

I adore collaborating with various conferences, festivals, corporate and private events. Often I’m invited to bring a collective, community close to big festivals or conferences. I also facilitate corporate workshops to enhance communication, team building and culture. And, it’s always an honor to play a set for private festivities, too.

I am touched by such beautiful words from you, around the world.

✨come to dance. to let go. to connect. to meditate. to be guided into raw expression.

Weekly opportunities to dance at KIX and x-dance continue this June, as do our intermittent sessions for couples with closer playground.

Wave 009 | Kindness

to whom are you kind?
to whom do you open your heart?

how much space do you give yourself - to be kind to yourself? 
how much can you soften - to open your heart to you?

however. whenever.

This little cat creature here ... she teaches me every. single. day. how she loves herself.

and so do my dances.

may this dance support you into kindness with you.

a little magic-reminder today 🪄 

I'm feeling in awe of possibilities today. The last two weeks, I've had the gift to witness x hold quite a few celebration sessions with brilliant beings with whom I've been working in 121 sessions the last 8-12 months. 

'Tis the season to birth winter's soul work. Soul work of being with.

erotic play begins when we hold each other with respect and allow for non-judgement and curiosity to breathe. 

erotic freedom arises

…. when we
♥️know what we want and need
♦️are able to articulate ourselves to our partner
🔥trust our partner is able to say yes, no, maybe (boundaries) and take care of their own needs, too.

💎 It’s a new pleasure and honor to facilitate spaces with my husband, Markus a certified sexological bodyworker, for partners to dance their erotic shadow and light. to incorporate whatever feelings are there. to lean into the frustrations and the joys. there is so much sexiness and freedom and juice when we make space for it all .... powerful fuel for deepening intimacy.

After closer’s debut workshop last Sunday on the topic of needs x requests, Markus and I have already had our vision for the next (half day) workshop in April. 

If deepening intimacy with a particular someone turns you on, I hope you’ll join us. Spots are limited.

Wave 008 | Dance IT

when there are no words, dance.
when there are feelings, dance.
when there is confusion, dance.
when there is not knowing, dance.
when there is separation, dance.

for strength, for courage, for love
for us to live not in a prison,
but in the spirit and magnitude of our beings.

may this dance serve your spirit, may your soul fly.

Beautiful beings, hello.
Sporadically throughout the year, I send out a spontaneous newsletter, hoping that through the ethers, our spirits have a little closer connect through these words. 

You can sign up to receive the newsletter at the bottom of the homepage of the website. 🔗link in bio. Here is a little taste of the last one.

❣️ Written January 28 to you ❣️

As February dances in with all shades of grey, the call for a spontaneous love letter has arrived.

At dinner*, after the first x-dance class in January, someone asked; "What are you most proud of about 2021?" I heard some very touching responses.

When my 'turn' came, I reflected on what it was like to show-up for the 3 weekly classes (KIX, x-dance, INX). This commitment literally taught (teaches) me to show-up. Whether I feel full and open, or a bit insecure. Whether I feel like every moment of the class is utter, transcendent connection or I'm in close commune with my imperfections. Whether my vulnerability is kissing confidence or whispering tenderness. 

And this awe extends to you. To you, who show up with exactly how you are. To you, who follow your dance to shatter the 'good' and 'bad' and 'pretty' and 'ugly'. 

yes. This is how we relish in the art of being. Being everything and nothing. Showing up for ourselves, with each other. 

So this little virtual letter is in big, deep gratitude to YOU for showing up so I can show up alongside you to co-create magic. Every. Single. Week. (now twice a week :-)) 

Keep scrolling to check out the 2x weekly classes,  a new project, a new Series, a new mix, info about my individual sessions (new spots have opened).

*Dinner; every Saturday night we all go out for dinner after x-dance. Join us next time after class if it calls 🙂

@ginavadana captured this love between myself and Miaka 😽
