Rhythm Weavers is an Intermediate Class that lets you explore the interlocking nature of rhythm. In our world, rhythms never operate in isolation. Our heartbeat is linked to the breath and the movement of our body. The cycle of a day is felt against the push and pull of the universe. In this Intensive Class we will learn how to play in an ensemble setting, each person playing their own rhythm, that weaves together to form a musical tapestry. 

Cost: ($250) Students are required to take a beginning drumming class with Dede (sacred drumming basics above) or have taken one of her classes in the past to register.  

Other dates for the series are:

The Goddess Workout® Sacred Geometry Beginner Bellydance 

Sunday, April 11 @ 7:00 – 8:00pm with Amira 

Each of the next 11 Sundays 

Many anthropologists feel that ancient people would use dance as a means to resonate with these patterns and celebrate with their connection to the source of creation.  

Each class will focus on a different geometric shape; not only how to execute the shape as a movement, but also the way that shape was part of an ancient language spoken to us as symbolism and metaphor. 

After completing the series, students will have a firm knowledge of how to integrate and embody the shapes.  They will have awareness of angles, circles, and lines as well as how the mundane is actually profound.  By practicing these shapes, they will be able to work towards removing energetic bocks throughout their body.  Cost $111 for all 11 classes or $15 drop in.

This is a time of rebirth and renewal.  What is a Super Moon? This is when the moon appears particularly larger than normal because of its closest approach to the Earth.  There are usually only 3-4 Super Moons per year.  Enrollment: In-person is limited to 9; either pop into Higher Self or call 231-941-5805 to reserve your spot.  As this class occurs after store operating hours, payment must be made prior to 6pm on the 26th for both the in-person and Zoom options.  Cost: $9
