Dancing the Rhythms of the Earth

Dances from around the world, their history, intention and simple steps are shared with a “no mistakes, only variations” attitude. No previous experience or partners are needed. Dances range from spritely to quiet; all are pleasurable and healing to the body and spirit. Sacred Circle Dancing teachers Maureen, Freidel and friends are collaborating to bring the dances and healing to Far Horizons as we take hands round the circle and enjoy all the benefits of this essentially human, time honored form of community.
