Autumn Equinox Virtual Women's Ritual Dance
Time & Location
About the Event
We will meet virtually on Friday evening, 9/25 6-8pm. We'll have a chance to gather, talk, and casually learn simple dances.
As we enter the darker days and longer nights let us nourish in the steps of the ancient ones who's wisdom is essential and much needed now.
I have lovely dances to share and I so would love to dance, distanced with you. I've been dancing virtually with my mentor and friend Laura Shannon and I have lovely dances to share. All with the wisdom and messages of communal support, honoring the matriarchal, resilience through hard times, finding home in ourselves, the earth as our mother, the cosmic order as medicine, and so much more. I truly feel how the dances, even dancing "alone" has healed, transformed and changed me.
The greatest antidote to all the enormous challenges and despair around us and in us is coming together as an embodied community, sharing in good whole food, holding each other and all we are in circle aligning with all circles everywhere and the patterns of the universe. I hope you join me in this circle, as all of our ancestors did, dancing sacred patterns, in synchrony, holding each other through the whole mystery and madness of it all. We will be celebrating Autumn...the light and dark are in balance as we descend now into greater darkness. How do we feel balance? How do we honor the growing darkness? What do we need to let go of? Let's honor these rhythms through body chanting, sacred geometry, moving mandala dances.
We will be dancing traditional Balkan, Greek, Rom, Armenian, and modern sacred circle dances. Throughout all ages and cultures, traditional circle dances were used to honor the divine, to heal, to affirm connection to the earth and each other, to build community and celebrate rites of passages and life transitions. The danced patterns illuminate the web of these connections. It is where personal and universal healing can occur.
The dances are joyful, meditative, mournful, full of beauty, longing, life, and celebration!
