Dear instagram, Today is a much calmer day. @kiki.kelseyring and I are on the road hauling ass through Iowa.  It is cloudy and beautiful. I miss the garden. Kittens, and Chicago humans muchly already. ...🌻 Look at this photo by the super talented @grbphotos. The color! The framing. Hes seriously an amazing human and photographer and I'm glad I got to hang with him earlier this week. !  I also am really excited that I almost have 4k followers! While this number is sort of meaningless in grand schemes of things, I am fascinated that so many of you are interested what I'm doing day to day. ( Is it the naked photos? I do like the nudies too. ) .... I like my life,  and love sharing it with you.  Anyhow.  I'm grateful for YOU!  You inspire me.  so. Where should we go in Colorado or Utah? Do we know anyone who want to put up 2 ladies for a night on the way to the burn?  Hot springs? So. Let's talk soon.  See you later, instagram. 🤣 Xoxo Gaea #instagram  #gaealady #danceveryday #burlesque #dearinstagram #gregbell #sunflower #ecogarden #pilsengardens #love #gardens #gia #gaea #yellow #roadtrip green was #look #follwme #youarecool #hashtag #eyeballs #sunlight #iowa #chicago #loveletters

🔥Announcement!🔥 @wanderswithkiki and I are hosting a FIRE and INTENTIONAL performance retreat at @danyasa_yoga_retreat in the tropical paradise of Costa Rica's southern coast.... we'll explore the element of fire thoroughly in all its glory and destruction: the power to 🔥ignite & destroy. 🔥Illuminate and consume. 🔥Transform and transmute. 🔥Spirit, physical, elemental.... We go in depth to the performative elements of choreography by looking first at our intentions that drive us deeply. Solo, group, multi prop. Yoga. dance, movement, prop manipulation. Writing, reflecting, meditation, play.  AND dance flow integrated- building a group choreo to perform at the end of the retreat in Dominical (and potentially envision festival!). We will work nightly with the element of Fire,  getting to know it and our relationship with it on deeper and deeper levels. AND Featuring a workshop with @sofiahthom Of @templebodyarts - the retreats & trainings I travel down to cook for with @eafoods.... it's going to be amazing. 🔥 All levels welcomed- from the experienced professional even those who have never used fire before. 🔥🏹🔥 Mark your calendars ! Retreat into here + in comments!! www.igniteyourinnerflameretreat.com See you there, fire cats! 🔥🐆 !!!

.float. Feel the air around your skin as if water silkenly touching you on all sides. .Breathe air. Float and support, sinking back into spine and bac body. Surrendering to all you know. With every breath, we create this reality. We have the choice and the power to shape all that is, to manifest our dreams and realities and to do it all. .breathe. .surrender. 💧🌀🌟🌀💧 📷 @gabrielsolisphoto (rotated for float effect by me)  Goddess art direction by @melissarobinphoto Silk veils bu @gaea_lady 💧🌀🌟🌀💧 #photography #fineart #fineartphotography #underwater #mermaid #campaign #iso1200 #profoto #profotousa #profotoa1 #blue #girls #erotic #art #ikelite #portraiture #portraitphotography - #regrann  #gaealady #danceveryday #burlesque #chicagoburlesque #mermaids #silkveils #creatingintention #breathe

Simple selfie.  What's our love and obsession with seeing photos others took of themselves by themselves? Is it a small insight into the psyche of that human? How we represent and present ourselves? How we choose to view us in a front cam?  Hm. Happy Saturday y'all. Don't think too hard! Xo New Crop from @frontrowpaul ! Thank you! Waiting for my 11pm and 1am set @thedrifterchicago . Send photos pls. Xo #selfie #gaealady #backstage
Projecting my gaze into the world: connecting inner and outer landscapes. How to project outwards that which we hold dear to our internal selves- and done even want to do this?  Performing is personal, or is in my world, and brings the audience together into a collective experience of rawness shown by the artist. It's a unique and special experience, and I want to share it with as many as I can. 🌏 Chicago! See me for the last few times: ⭐TONIGHT ⭐ 730pm @kisskisscabaret ⭐Tomorrow⭐ 1pm @lagunitasbeer circus Chicago 9pm @alhambrapalacerestaurant  11pm and 1am @thedrifterchicago ⭐sunday⭐ 3-5pm Silk Veil class at eco (still 3 spots Available- pm me if you're interested!) 🏹 📷by @grbphotos From @burningcityfestival at @uuchicago Hoops by @synergyflowarts 🏹 #gaealady #dancelove #chicago #chicagoburlesque #speakeasy #chicagoclasses #danceteacher #fireperformer #firehoops #synergyhoops #firedancer  #fire #gaze #firefly #firefae #verticalsideshow #ringoffire #blackandwhite #monochrome #instaphoto #photooftheday #friday
Mystery and magic.  I performed one of my oldest veil pieces at @getunbridled last night. It was like reuniting with a good old friend- deeply slipping into each other's rhythms easily and swiftly from intimate past knowing.  Playing with concepts of expansion and contraction,  and using my veils to mesmerize and inspire.  As I work more and more on the details in the basics, using Direction and intention and drawing my bills through space I find a new dynamism with my expression. Sometimes, it's the little things. ♡ 💎 Thanks : All the human inspirations dancing with fabic @willylaqueue for the video @getunbridled for this awesome weekly show @michellelamour for putting it all together @joshuakloceck for lighting it 💎 #gaealady #danceveryday #creatingintention #frombehind #backstage #vip #chicagoburlesque #speakeasy #silk #burlesque #chicagoburlesquescene #oldfriends #silkveils #veildancing #eyes #silhouette #stagelighting #drama
Let's get weird.  I embrace who I am, fully. Yet as most humans there are times i simply dont love certain things about myself: such as I'm too busy most of the time, prone to poking and instigation, letting things slip through cracks, disappointing others, and more.... So. Here's to loving all the bullshit, too. Doing my best moment to moment. That's all I can ask of myself, and what I can hold myself to.

What's in a name? 🌎Gaea Lady🌍. This is a name that is near and dear to me, one that has stuck deep.  It was given to me by a lovely friend Felissia at my first burn in Michigan, alongside my then lover Pan. He was Pan, I became Gaea.  Together we were Pangaea.  And like the supercontinent did, we too broke apart. 🌎🌐🌏 So here, I am Gaea, a reflection of the primal greek goddess, symbolizing the earth and the nurturing mother of all.  An ancient one, she coexisted with only Chaos & Eros during the creation of the world itself. 🌏Gaea🌎 as a name, is a lot.  It is a lot to embody and took me a long time to feel comfortable calling myself a name with such gravity.  Gaea hearkens to so much more than I myself am, & connects me directly with all there is and reminds me that as individuals we are simply small pieces of the whole, and within us we contain everything, just as the earth. 🌏🌐🌏 The name Gaea Lady reminds me to embody that which I care about - nurturing others, allowing things to happen more and more, creating deep nourishing connections in my life, and being of the plants and living beings around me.  Gaea relates to both my performance styles & my @eafoods cooking life - In one I use energy, movement, performance art, sensory impact, and time/space to create connection and impact through performance and teaching, in the other I use food, herbs, local and sustainable growth, creativity, intuitive cooking, sensory activation and time/space to nourish through food & kitchen facilitation and workshops.  They are connected, two sides of a coin that is essentially the way I move through this world. 🌍 gaea lady. of the earth. 🌏 In essence, this is my name.  My deep name, which resonates so much with me just as my birth given name does.  Call me either, I am proud to have both. 🌍 #gaealady #gaea #earthlady #whatsinaname #namesake #nickname #stagename #reclined #nomakeup #nofilter #camptuckabatchee #illinois #forests

🏵 :Muse life: ⭐ I have so many muses in this world. I'm Constantly inspired.  Seeing how others create, how their inspirations plan out into their artistic creations, how women hold their power & ignite others with it.... all so inspiring for me to continue to create, be, and connect. In turn, hearing that I inspire others and act as muse fuels my fire to continue to create and inspire others by living outwardly as I love. Muse grows muse. the cycle is infinite. .... and this list of muses is infinite. Words, performance, carriage, teachings, themselves, dance, costuming,.... so much! But here are some.  @sofiahthom @bellablue @msblarose @melissarobin @lizbreenella @evalafeva @itslindseymarks @michellelamour @bellylady @iamraygunn @breathebeloved @aydakeshtar @dahliafatale 🌷 Who are yours?

Feel spaciousness underneath your feet down into the earth. breathe now and feel how spacious you can expand to be--- even Beyond walls and buildings and cities. Feel the space between breaths, the spaciousness between molecules, and the infinite space in which we all exist.
