Looking Ahead to September:

Sacred Belly Dance for Beginners

Sunday, September 1 @ 11:00am – 12:00pm with Amira Hamzar 

As far back as the matriarchal Sumerian times, women danced, feminine deities were worshiped, and the Goddess was seen as the creatrix and nurturer.  Throughout history, what became known as Belly Dance was passed down and has expressed these qualities.  These movements harmonized with the Moon phases and connected the dancers to the celestial rhythms.  Women today can utilize these same dance movements to help balance their energies.  All ages, sizes and shapes welcome.  No dance experience necessary.  Cost: $13

Community Meditation & Satsang
