Her Rising Dance Ceremony
Friday, February 8, 2013 from 7:30 PM to 11:00 PM (PST)
On Friday February 8th, men and women will gather for an embodied prayer, bringing light and healing to the feminine wound within us all. This is the wound that is at the core of all other global problems, from poverty, to war to destruction of the Earth.
In the spirit of mid-wifing a world where the sacred feminine and the sacred masculine come into harmony and balance in their most evolved forms, how can we heal that wound and liberate ourselves? We'll dance that living inquiry.
Through high vibrational sound and movement, we'll dive into an inward journey inquisiting how this issue has affected our lives personally, our relationships, our communities and our eco-systems. We'll invoke the field that we we want to see embodied in the world, calling in healing, love, illumination and liberation.
This embodied collective prayer is an invitation to dance not only for our own liberation but also the healing of the billions of women, girls, men and boys worldwide who have been affected by this core wound and are ready to heal.
By an inward journey through the elements of earth, water, fire, air and ether holding a shared intention, we'll support our personal and collective liberation. The journey will be held by Dancing Freedom facilitator Magalie Bonneau-Marcil. Magalie has faciliated dance ceremonies from South Africa to Boom Festival in Europe, and Bay Area.
