* WHAT TO EXPECT *
With sensitive guidance and inspired narrative, belly dance teacher and embodied awakening guide, Tara Star, will invite us through mystical doorways that we will hold open with our intention for the imaginal realms to appear. The intention is to be available for the Mystery beyond the veils of illusion to dance us awake and be swept into the intelligent ecstatic healing life force energy.
We will begin with some gentle guided movement and a relaxed inquiry into the deep well of wisdom that lives and breathes as the body Temple. We’ll dance with veils to explore the many faces of the Feminine and to invoke transformation. We’ll dive deep into an experiential meditation to anchor into infinite potentials, to embody the passion of the life force and follow with a touching gratitude warm-up dance.
We will then continue with a movement ceremony that will include inspired dialogue and an in-depth exploration of the Sacred Shapes of Bellydance. These shapes raise our vibrational intelligence to release habits of body, mind, & emotion, allowing us to rejuvenate in currents of bliss. The Sacred Shapes of Bellydance awaken different aspects of the universal energies similar to the energy cultivation practices of qi’gong, tai chi and yoga. A dance of embodied empowerment will follow as well as some rejuvenating rest. We’ll end our time together with some tea and vegan treats enjoying some relaxed socializing and connection.
* INTENTION *
This work is sacred, so please consider how you may arrive in a way that will honor your own sense of divinity. Come dressed comfortably, fresh and in a spirit of welcoming the highest potentials for yourself, for one another, and for the greater world.
