September 18-20 with optional Master class September 20-21
Optional Master Class with Laura Shannon: The Dance of Wholeness: Integration of the Opposites in Traditional Women’s Ritual Dances.
In Laura’s words: Traditional ritual dances are among the oldest circle dances. Simple yet profound, they celebrate the sacredness of the natural world, and help us reconnect with ourselves, each other and the cycles of life. Coming from cultures which have survived many periods of transition, these dances can wisely and joyfully guide us through our own life changes. They channel positive energy, life force or chi, which helps support healing and transformation on all levels. As we dance our way towards the fall equinox, we will also address themes of harvest and balance, in the dance and in our lives. The optional Master Class from Sunday to Monday will address these themes of wholeness and integration more intensively and deeply.
