Within a group of 6 -9 other women, we will share in the exquisite practice of tantric dance, infused and supported by time to soften, move, deepen, and be held in the warm water healing pool.
We'll begin inside the temple, with tantric embodiment and movement meditation, then shift together into the waters, where we'll continue the movement into deep feminine embodiment, both in our own space, and then as we are held suspended in the weightless timelessness of the water, in attentive, loving support from our sisters.
We will return to "land" inside the temple, for the full practice of witness dance, bringing the softness, sensuality, grace, and subtle embodiment of the Waters into our dance, capturing, cultivating, and surrendering to the deep feminine Way of the waters within and without.
ABOUT TANTRIC DANCE OF THE SACRED FEMININE:
Tantric Dance of The Sacred Feminine is a unique and powerful moving meditation, self-sourced in devotion, which focuses on the merging of womb-space and heart. The translation of the word Tantra means "to weave." Within the Tantric Dance of the Sacred Feminine we are weaving all the parts of ourselves into one organic whole. In this sensual meditation we are called to access our sexual power and to contain it. As we hold, recycle and absorb this creative energy or prana throughout the the cells of our body we create and transform our lives with it, healing ourselves personally and globally. As we sink into the depths of our womb-space, and open our senses to the serpentine pathways of our subtle body and we are moved beyond ordinary awareness into another dimension...the dimension of inner-space. When we surrender ourselves to be danced in this dakini-field and allow ourselves to be embodied by Goddess in all her faces/phases, the potential for liberation is infinite.

Find your dance inside every breath,
Let it open you
Until you are filled with sighs
Release your dance
Like sweet smoke
Dance each step with only now spiraling between heaven and earth
Every cell a shrine for the divine
A vessel overflowing with the essence of life
