Long before belly dance was a performance art, women and men belly danced in ceremonies and celebrations for various intents. Originally, the dance was derived from movements that occur naturally in making love and giving birth. These movements activate and circulate our creative, life-force energy. In doing so, the dance has tremendous power to bring healing to ourselves, connect with our full, Divine power and unite that power as a human tribe.
In this day-long workshop, we will practice the art of belly dance with its original sacred intent. We will focus first on how belly dance brings self-healing, how to use the movements to invigorate and circulate the life force energy to cleanse and transform our old pain and shame. Secondly, we will explore how belly dance activates both our inner masculine and feminine energies and helps us become a balanced bridge between the physical and spiritual realms. As this moving bridge, we are able to allow in more Divine Love and step into our personal power more fully. Finally, we will dance together to enjoy non-verbal, heart-centered connection and the collective power of dancing with sacred intent.
The workshop will include fundamental belly dance movements, a brief history of belly dance, the specifics of Internal Alchemy (self-healing), moving meditation, verbal sharing, dancing as prayer and group dances based on ancient tribal movements.
All over the age of 15 are welcome – all genders, with or without dance experience.
