WHAT IS SACRED CIRCLE DANCE

Sacred Circle Dance comes from the tradition of folk dance with the focus being on spiritual and healing energies and the energies of the circle. It was first introduced at the Findhorn Foundation by Dance Master Bernhard Wosien. He collected a group of dances from around Europe and brought them to Findhorn where he felt that the spiritual essence of the dances could be more appreciated.  Since then the many teachers he taught travel around the world sharing the tradition and empowering newer teachers to do the same.  Many of the dances are original folk dances and many more now are being choreographed by the ever growing numbers of teachers and dancers .


In the ancient times when towns villages families gathered, they would dance together in a long line or circles. They would do this for festivals, celebrations, weddings, to greet the return of soldiers from war return of hunters and fishermen. We have lost this in our society. 


With Sacred Circle Dance no partners or special props are needed. All you need are two feet even if you have two left feet. The dances are taught step by step thoroughly until the leader feels the group has it. The music is played and we all dance as one, as if we knew them forever. When we let go of our minds, we realize our bodies knew the dances all along. 


We will lead you through a series of dances beginning with simple easy to follow dances and progressing until we reach fairly complicated dances and you will be quite surprised at how fast you can advance with the right instruction.
 

Focus is on the energies of the individual dance, the group present, the larger universal dance group, the angelic kingdom, the energies of beauty, grace, love and healing to aid us in our journey

"Dance with Linda is like dancing with the elves. She has magic feet and helps me remember these dances from millenniums ago." 

"The dance allows me to experience the grace within my body. I feel connected to my center aligned with spirit. I feel the natural flow of life within me and I know I am alive."
