The focus for this weekend will be the prayer Jesus taught his disciples when they asked him how to pray. It is a prototype for prayer, addressing the Divine as ‘Father’ and so linking all who pray as his children, seeking his will. We are to petition him with our daily need for nourishment and forgiveness, for all we have comes from him. It is his power that transforms us.
During the dancing we will focus on different aspects of the prayer, refreshing its meaning and expressing it in a new way, through movement rather than words. The weekend is for people new to circle dancing and those who already love it. Each dance is taught and no partner needed.
You are invited to come and enjoy dancing in this wonderful setting with delicious home cooking, delightful grounds and welcoming sphere.
