About the Event
You are invited to bathe in divine embodied women's community through sacred rhythms, patterns, and themes in dance. We'll be sharing in traditional Balkan, Greek, Rom, Armenian, Near Eastern and modern sacred circle dances. Nourishing ourselves through this lineage of women's dances we embrace self love, sister love, and love for the grandmothers of the dance.
Throughout all ages and cultures, traditional women's circle dances were used to honor the divine, heal, affirm connections to the earth and each other, build community and celebrate rites of passages and life transitions. Many of the dances are thought to originate in Neolithic European matriarchal cultures embodying a worldview which honored the earth, the body, and the divine feminine.
The danced patterns illuminate the web of these connections and with conscious practice align us with all from the cellular to the cosmic level. We all have the capacity to transcend ourselves and reconnect with the web, to attune to the cosmic vibration of the divine feminine, and to transmit our embodiment of this sacred energy as healing force into our lives and into our world. This is where personal and universal healing can occur.
Love infused herbal tea and raw herbal chocolates made by the Dancing Web will be provided to ground us after our circle.
The dances are joyful, meditative, mournful, full of love, beauty, longing, life, and celebration!
