Bit About Our "STORY"

My name is Dixie.

Briefly, I AM....

  • Red Rox Retreat co-owner
  • Healing Dance Instructor since 2021
  • Clarity Coach since 2017
  • RETIRED Licensed Massage Therapist (after 25 years)
  • Mama of 4 Amazing Kids, 5 Wonderful Step-kids, 14 Adorable Grandkids & 1 Darling Great Grandbaby
  • Wife of One OUTSTANDING Guy

I'll tell you a bit more about our family's story.... And before I do, I want you to notice - you’ve already created your own story of us. 

Your story might be formed by the style of our website, or photos you've seen here, maybe your past experience with someone named Dixie (yes that is my real name BTW)… any number of things, right?

Now I ask, is your story of me the same as my kids' story, or my husband’s? What about the story my neighbor has about me?

I don't think so.... 
​We all have different stories about everyone & everything, right?!

"Our lives are made up of an endless amount of stories. Some are amazing, others not so much…. And of course, we’re all looking for our Happily Ever After story, right?  Well, I suggest an alternative!"
​~Dixie Ewing

So who’s story is TRUE?!?

First, a little more about us….​

As a child, my parents supported us in finding our passion - mine was DANCE! They also always encouraged us to ask questions.

My Mom believed questions were an essential aspect of learning & encouraged them constantly ...that is, until I started questioning my family’s beliefs as a teenager. 

(Fortunately, even though my family & I may have different views - we still have deep love for each other)

 Throughout my teen & young adult years I explored many different beliefs.

Then when I was 22 years old, I became a Licensed Massage Therapist graduating from Myotherapy College of Utah.

I felt I was pretty open minded & I had life nearly figured out (hahaha…..pretty hilarious now looking back).

As a Massage Therapist most of my adult life, many of my stories revolve around my career and believe me, I’ve gathered plenty of colorful tales! 

In 1999, I became a Mama! A huge dream & passion of mine.

Fast forward to now and I adore being Mama to 4 incredible kids!  (Yes I even adore my teenagers - whether they like me or not, is a different story LOL xoxox) Plus 5 wonderful step-kids,14 grandkids and 1 great grandbaby!

Last, the best of all the game - I’m also a thankful & fulfilled wife…. Although, it hasn’t always felt like ‘happily ever after’ (more about that soon).

Needless to say, as an enthusiastic Wellness Integrator and zealous Mom & Wife, I’m deeply dedicated to Holistic Health! Especially Healing Dance - combining my intense love of Inner Work with Movement! 

In our Soultry Dance sessions, we have a blast working out our Bodies PLUS we add in some Mind & Soul Integration Prompts that bring our healing to an EPIC holistic level!

What's a Soultry Dance?

  • Soultry Dance reminds us how to unravel the Chaotic STORIES in our life that cause emotional, mental & physical stress, while dancing our hearts out!

  • Combined with decades of experience as a Licensed Massage Therapist  & Clarity Coach - supporting people to practice balanced, holistic approach to life - Clarity with every BEAT!

  • You can confidently believe that my accumulated experience creates full Body, Mind and Soul Wellness!

INTEGRATION 
Body. Mind. Soul. 

You might wonder, how I decide to practice Body, Mind, Soul Integration and become a Healing Dance Instructor....


As I've mentioned previously, I started dancing when I was 3 years old and continued all through my teens into adulthood - Tap, Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, social dance, etc.


And from a very young age, I was taught that questions are knowledge…. And yet the main question I would ask throughout life was “WHY____?”   I came to realize, I didn’t seem to get the answers I was seeking, by merely asking ‘why’.


Then one beautiful autumn day in 2016, when I was trading massage with a fellow therapist, Nancy, I mentioned the recent separation from my husband. (Really, I was complaining & venting about how it was all my husband’s fault! LOL


My friend, Nancy asked the question that would alter my life-compass forever…. 

"WHO would you be WITHOUT that STORY, Dixie?"

I remember my mind seemed to glitch.  With a dumbfounded expression I said “Huh?” 

First of many reminders for me....

INNER Work

Nancy briefly explained about The Work of Byron Katie (thework.com).  I had always been interested in Mindfulness & this Work definitely peaked my curiosity.

My whole drive home after our session, I was ultra excited to search & find out more. And for the next few weeks, I was enthralled by this INNER Work! The more I practiced, the more I felt a ‘CLEAR WAVE’ of relief, and it started to be noticeable in my daily life.  This Inner Work is simply identifying & questioning our stressful, crazy, chaotic thoughts, until they dissolve & our true nature emerges (also known as Self-Inquiry).

WAVES 

By the Way

You might notice, I make lots of references to water. 

It’s my "happy place", especially the Ocean. 

Thus my previous business name 

Clear Wave Wellness. 


Kind of goofy, I know, and yet so true to my heart!

BEYOND Explanation

In March 2017, I graduated from The School for The Work.... I HAVE NO WORDS TO EXPLAIN the MAGNITUDE of the experience from those courses. Even though my husband and I were still separated, he began to notice the changes in me & in turn, the value of these Techniques.  I then started training with Clarity Coaching Institute  ....and of course, all this self-healing was beyond explanation. 

New Perspective

I’m happy to say, in the fall of 2018, my husband and I reconciled!  I give most of the credit to the shifts my hubby & I experienced from our regular Integrative practices. The tide just keeps bringing us new perspectives of reality, a constant ebb & flow. Of course, we still have struggles and stress.... The difference is NOW we have the understanding to Inquire, to be Mindful, to Witness, to Notice, to Allow - instead of fight against our feelings!  

NOW life feels so much more simple, free & CLEAR, and so does my parenting and MARRIAGE!

Lighthouse

Allow me to finish with a cheesy analogy... Our family has created Red Rox Retreat as lighthouse on the ocean (of life) - by reminding you to view your CHAOTIC stories more clearly, holding the space for you to identify what is true for you & rediscovering the path you want to take on your boat, paddle board, swim, etc. 


Ultimately, guiding you, via Soultry Dance or Soul Coaching, in the waters of life by asking introspective questions & seeking solutions for your physical, emotional & mental well-being, plus mindfully reminding you to Be. Here. Now! And when you are present, YOU are more CLEAR, and YOU will pass that on to your family, friends & the world  around you!


BTW- this is a mutually beneficial process - while guiding you, I also discover new parts of myself and heal right along with you. We're all in the same water, learning to navigate the waves! 


So instead of Happily Ever After…. 

I’d like to propose

Happily Ever Present!


These are the gifts I’m passionate about sharing with YOU!  Perfect duo of Inner Work & Healing Dance for clearer Body, Mind & Soul! And of course, our awe inspiring Accommodations!


Are you ready to rediscover who you are beneath all the chaotic stories? 

Your true self, your true wisdom, your true inspiration!?!

I'm honored to help you reconnect to your true nature ....  


Time to Shimmy your Body, Mind & Soul!
