Thursday 3rd August – afternoon
Workshop: Dance Journey through Ancient Goddess Civilisations – Multicultural Dance Workshop though Her Many Sacred Lands.
In this workshop, we will learn and enjoy traditional circle dances from many cultures that have held Goddess sacred. We will dance and travel to Artemis and the Amazons on the Black Sea, to Greece and Turkey, to Israel, to Celtic Brittany, to the folk memory of Bulgaria, and to Armenia where Goddess is still present in the Tree of Life. In a meditation, we will find our Goddess country of ancient soul connection. By learning the traditional steps and movements, we awaken the memories of ancient Goddess cultures and different lands in our bodies and souls. Together we will celebrate the power of connection to the past, to different cultures and Goddesses from many lands, and to each other in the circle.
