SUMMER DANCE WORKSHOP: Moving to Reunite Our Hearts with Mother Earth
Thursday, July 22-Sunday, July 25, 2021
Come and dance our renewal into the circle of Earth’s community. Let this be our sign of unity! Musicians, poets, artists, and dancers of all levels are invited to responsibly join together and create sacred art in tribute to the place of our birth and ongoing transforma-tion. Participants will have the opportunity to offer the work of previous days in an outdoor prayerful setting. Bring comfortable clothes and your creative masks! Join dancers, musicians, artists, liturgists, and poets of faith to voice, dance & step into new ways of creativity and prayer. Our work will help us recharge our energies and com-mitment to renewal.
