Sacred Gestures

A Dancing Invocation


This gathering is designed for 108 women ages 15 & up, from all backgrounds and with all abilities. We welcome trained dancers, non-trained dancers, those who miss dancing, those who have never had the chance to dance, and those who are afraid of dancing. (You got this. We promise!)




A combination of dance party, yoga practice, choreography lab, modern-day ritual, craft circle, loving self-exploration, moving prayer, & community celebration--this workshop will MOVE you! Together, we will cultivate joy, healing & peace for ourselves, and in turn, for the world around us.

As the weekend progresses, each participant will collect/create a series of meaningful and sacred gestures that will become the basis for our dancing meditation installation.




At the end of our three days together, we will perform our Sacred Gestures 108 times, as a community offering. Rather than a traditional performance set up with a clear beginning, middle, and end, Sacred Gestures inhabits the space as long as that repetition requires (roughly 30 minutes).

We welcome community members to view this performance, as well as to walk or sit among the dancers, in order to share in the intimate experience.
