Postponed until June.
Silent Whirling: Sema and Dancing to the Rhythm and Melody of the Heart
Whirling in silence, solely to the rhythm of one’s heart, enables us to focus on finding calm and peace within moving meditation. Although circumstances vary, those who practice silent whirling meditation within a group are often more likely to experience and share a wide range of emotions. In this class, you will learn to find peace in the silence.
