Embodiment Workshop

January 12 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Channel – Connect – Transform

Become outside yourself in dance! Channel your passion into another being or element and uncover how you can use your body to speak and guide you.

All forms of life have a language within them. There is a subtle energy in every element, object, animal…. and the manifestation of the greater spirit. Learn the language that the mystics used to manifest these beings and how to connect with them.

Using ancient Persian rituals and mystical dances connect to your body and emotional self. We will also learn to correct our posture and body lines based on what we manifest.

Whirling dance experience helpful but not necessary. Everyone welcome.
