dance of universal peace
saturday dec 21st
What is being nurtured in the fertile darkness,
What stars are guiding us in the longest of nights,
What rebirth do we hope for inwardly?
To mimic the rebirth of the light, we’ll
~ dance ~ in ~ the ~ dark ~
Slowly bringing back light into our circle

for a Night dancing the Divine Essence into our cells, hearts, minds, community, and the world!
Dances of Universal Peace — spiritual embodiment practices to feel a natural state of at-one-ment which is pure joy and connection in the heart.
Sacred sound is invoked to reverberate our prayers into the depths of our beings..
Chants, prayers, and songs from the world’s spiritual and religious traditions call upon the Divine to help us remember, re-intentionalize, re-vision, and become re-connected & experiencing our interrelation with all…
Music, song, and harmony help our spirits rise …
Simple evocative movements in a group help us transcend our singular-ness into the interconnected-ness while moving energy/qi/light through our beings to un-block awaken and integrate that which we invoke into our beings.
The solstice is the return of the Light — celebrated in many world traditions, Christmas, Hannukah, and we’ll bring this energy to help us all turn the corner as the days start to lengthen — what is being nurtured in the fertile darkness, what stars are guiding us in the longest of nights, what rebirth do we hope for inwardly?
Bring desserts to share!
