Sacred Circle Dance: Find Peace, Joy and Healing

with Evelyn Beck

June 14 - 16, 2024

Sacred Circle Dances are simple, gentle dances, embodying and integrating mind, body, and spirit. They have ancient roots in music and dance from cultures around the world. This weekend retreat will introduce you to dance as a way of connecting to spirit.

The importance of the music cannot be overestimated; its power to move us deeply is central to the effectiveness of our practice. The “sacred” in this form of dance is not associated with any theology or religion, but describes an intention, an inclination of our hearts, a desire to dance mindfully, to create a meditative, liminal space, set apart from the hurly-burly of the world.

Rooted in our connections to the earth, these dances, both traditional and modern choreographies, evoke a spiritual dimension leading to harmony, balance, joy, and healing. No partner or previous dance experience is needed. The philosophy of this practice, aimed to bring dance to a wide variety of people is, “There are no mistakes, only variations.”

Join us for this experiential weekend of connecting to ourselves, others, and to spirit through Sacred Circle Dances.

“Just to let you know that I feel so grateful for the dancing. Each dance brings another dimension with it, and you select such a wonderful variety of music and dances that mesh perfectly. I feel renewed and refreshed after our dancing.” B.

“These dances are so beautiful and meaningful. No matter how I feel before I dance, I feel calm and whole after our dancing.” J.

“Dancing with you is enlivening and healing. Every Monday evening I am happy looking forward to our Tuesday morning dancing which keeps me going even in hard times. A.
