Dance of the Feminine - Sacred dance and Mystical Arts

  • SOUL CENTRE 18 Huia Road Auckland, Auckland, 0604 New Zealand (map)

Join Schirin Chams-Diba for a Day-long Temple Immersion in Sacred Dance Ritual & the Mystical Arts - remember, reclaim and redefine your inherent feminine power.

Essence of the Feminine is poetry of the body expressed in ancient meaningful gestures. It is a symphony of moving pictures and framed poses, a revelation of the deep soul through the Sacred Feminine Arts.

In our circle of sisters we weave mystical practices, wisdom teachings and sacred dance traditions, from India to the Near East, in accordance with our true feminine nature.

We move in our own lunar rhythms and connect with our naturally arising wisdom, insight, vitality and joy. We apply the sacred symbology of undulations, waves, spirals, circles and infinity loops, linking in with the geometry of the universe.

We conjure up and harmonize energies of earth, air, fire and water in our own beings. We source from the womb and heart.

Dancing our prayers, we embody sacred teachings from time immemorial. Our Higher Selves serve as our *Guiding Stars*.
Attendance for women identified only. No previous experience needed.

In the evening ritual we will be joined by our sacred sister of SOUL, Wilhemeena Isabella Monroe as she weaves into our evening ritual her beautiful love poems, magical movement practices and cacao plant medicine journey.
