Rue Payne

Sacred relationship has always been at the center of Rue's ministry. Co-parented by two spiritual leaders, Rue is a native to the interconnection of music, touch, and energy, and their powerful influence on the human experience. While earning her bachelors in journalism and public relations, she began her own journey as a spiritual mentor focusing on intuitive living and conscious relationship building. Throughout her twenties, her journey extended through dance, yoga, meditation, and spiritual development in several communities throughout the United States and in Europe.

In 2019, amidst a burgeoning consent awareness campaign in the country, Rue yearned to build a safe, sacred space for her local community to experience positive, healing touch and to practice intentional energy exchange both within and with each other. Combining her background in spiritual and intuitive arts with her cross-disciplinary movement training, she has created a unique manifestation of meditation, dance, and empathy practice for her students. Rue also has appeared on podcasts and interviews on cultivating self-trust, intuitive living, and conscious partnerships. Her philosophy is that by connecting to the Inner Dancer in all of us, we may balance technique of the body with tenderness of the soul.
