"What an exhilarating experience, felt so alive to be dancing so wild and free with my sisters! "
"Super liberating experience. No judgement, just pure movement and expression in a safe creative space. Excellent music choices, as usual"
Dance of the Goddess is a new creation from Gaia Harvey Jackson, facilitator of the Psychedelic Women’s Circle.
Journey through five goddess archetypes, invoking their qualities, learning their myths and stories, and bringing their wisdom into our bodies through movement and voice.
This dance is based on Jean Shinoda Bolen’s book ‘Goddesses in Everywoman’, a classic work of female psychology that uses archetypal Greek goddesses as a way of describing behaviour patterns and personality traits. Gaia combines this powerful text with the classic 5 Rhythms structure, lifting it's wisdom out of the pages and onto the dance floor.
Each goddess contains a particular energy or theme which is reflected in the music, taking you on journey through the huntress, the warrior, the wrathful queen, the lover, and the priestess.
This dance has been developed to help women access different energies and emotions, to deepen our understanding of self, and heal the body and mind through movement and creative expression.
This is a sacred and playful space for women to explore, express and release. Together we create a safe environment to be free, wild, soft, angry, vulnerable and powerful.
The 5 Greek Goddesses:
Artemis - Goddess of the moon and the hunt. Protector of women.
Athena - Goddess of war, strategy. The Warrior.
Hera - Queen of heaven and earth. Rage.
Aphrodite - Goddess of beauty, sensuality, creativity, playfulness and self love.
Hestia - Goddess of the hearth. Connection with the divine, sacred priestess.
Latecomers will not be admitted.
