Saturday 21st December, The Bridge Family Centre, St Saviours 7-9.15pm
Gather together with like minded hearts and souls with powerful presence, intent and celebration for this special time of year.
In Latin, solstice (mid winter) means ‘sun set still’ and Winter Solstice is the great stillness before the Sun’s strength builds, and days grow longer.
We will begin with an optional shared feast at 5pm and then at 7pm we will dance consciously into the fruitful dark out of which new life can eventually emerge. Everything lies dormant in the silent night, a sacred time of rest before the awakening, and the slow build toward longer days. We will also move in celebration for the sun that starts a new cycle at winter solstice and acknowledge the suns rays shining into the dark and nurturing the new life there to be cultivated.
This is an offering for life, and also an acknowledgment of the work of Extinction Rebellion Jersey, to gather and celebrate this potent dreaming time and the nourishing movement we have growing in strength here in Jersey.
Wild Earth Dance “Conscious Dance”
This is a dance that cleanses your mind with sweat and breath, laughter and prayer. We let go of conversation, dissolve into movement, drop deep into the body and discover the anatomy of the soul. We will move through personal exploration into a loving, intimate relationship body, mind, heart, and source energy and awaken our imaginations together in a field of connected dreaming. We are powerful creative beings and the dance facilitates in us a liberation of that beautiful power and intent.
This dance will be facilitated by Maria Barnicoat, who first began hosting conscious dance back in 2008 (read my journey here).
Everyone is welcome!
COST: BY DONATION on the NIGHT
The dance will be preceded by a shared vegetarian meal from 5-7pm.
Please bring a dish to contribute and huddle amongst like hearted souls for a tasty feast before we move in celebration.
