The Dancing Web's June Virtual Ritual Dance
Time & Location
About the Event
We will join together just after the Summer Solstice and Strawberry Full Moon to weave together with the moon, sun, sacred plants, sacred dance and dance therapy. All exist in one another, why I call my work The Dancing Web.
The plants/Mother Earth exist within the dances as earth patterns, honoring the rhythms of life and death. I will also focus on 1 or 2 plants that are important medicine on the land currently here and align the plant/s with the dance.
In our dance we will be sharing in traditional Balkan, Roma. Armenian, Near Eastern, and modern sacred circle dances aligning with the Summer solstice;Strawberry Full Moon energies. Our time together may also include elements of expressive dance, barefoot flamenco, inspirational poetry.
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!
