Body Prayer ~ A 6 Week Program Women’s Dance Circle ~
Close your eyes….Take a breath….Now gently follow your breath inside your body….Take another pause…This time take a slightly deeper breath and follow it once more inside, see where it takes you. Sense what your breath awakens inside of you…Is it a sound that moves through your throat, is it a gentle wave of pleasure arising from feeling your spine and hips expanding as you breath, is it a light that you sense flowing from your heart? ….This sensation may be subtle or may be strong….Continue to follow the sensations until you feel an impulse, a spark to move into movement.
Let your body lead … How does spirit (your highest-self, goddess, divine, mother earth) arise through your body? What does spirit want to tell you through movement? What guidance does it have for you, that is waiting to be embodied.
You are the vessel. Let yourself open to receive it’s prayer for you.
THIS IS BODY PRAYER
Body Prayer is a dance ritual for self-discovery, celebration and transformation
Body Prayer gifts us the opportunity to find stillness, to listen, and to nourish our relationships with our bodies
Body Prayer is a place where we can meet and be guided by the innate wisdom of our breath and our bodies for our path and highest good.
Body Prayer is for Woman who wants to reclaim the wisdom and power innate to her body and spirituality
Especially if you have been:
~ Feeling disconnected from your body
~ Ready to release, fear, shame, guilt and step into a path of presence, joy, and pleasure
~ Looking to deep dive into your spiritual path.
~ Ready to show up authentically with all of who you are
~ Have been craving an oasis where you can tune-in to your bodies inner wisdom, for guidance, direction and inspiration.
~ Seeking to participate in woman-centered rituals and acquire tools to gain a deeper connection to your spirituality and divine essence
~ Feel called to be in circle with like-minded women where you can feel accepted and supported as you are
~ Love to dance and want to use it as a tool for your spiritual growth

ABOUT THE DANCE
Liz will lead a DJ’ed dance (a fusion of Ecstatic Dance & DOWH non-facilitated and lightly facilitated free-formed movement practice) for deep connection and expansion and exploration. Ecstatic Dance is a unique freestyle conscious dance experience, guided by an intention/theme, and a curated arch of world music, that takes you on a journey of personal exploration, and liberation.
Ecstatic Dance is therapeutic in nature, as it provides a space for you to physically move and connect to your emotions. Ecstatic Dance is part of the larger umbrella of Conscious Movement. A moving meditation of sorts, as there are no specific dance moves, it is a free dance, guided by your own expressive improvised movement. There are 3 basic guidelines to Ecstatic Dance. We dance barefoot. Our body is our guide. There is no talking on the dance floor.
What is Dance Our Way Home (DOWH)? DOWH supports women to embrace and celebrate our Sacred Feminine, to be free from restraints, to be enamoured by our own breath and dance, and to fall head over heels in love with our self and with everything and everyone” – Erica Ross co-founder of DOWH
