Using a wide range of music and fairly simple steps we will explore the 5 elements of earth, water, air, fire and spirit. We will experience a range of dances from very grounding earthy ones to the more ethereal; contemplating our connection to the elements and what they correspond to in our own inner lives. Our hope is that by the end of the weekend we will feel balanced, whole, loved and at peace.
We aim to create a friendly and sacred space where you will feel nurtured in body, mind and spirit. We will learn the dances together, welcoming both those who are new to circle dancing and experienced dancers. The dance is like a mantra, stilling the mind and calming the body, bringing our whole being into Oneness.
There will be a period of free time on Saturday afternoon to enjoy the grounds, walk in the surrounding countryside, chat with each other or rest. Saturday evening there is a choice of activities – singing, meditative craft and relaxing. On the Sunday morning we bring the dances we have learnt together with short readings/prayers to create a sacred act of universal worship.
