Dances for the Divine Mother
Evia, Greece | July 16 - 22, 2018
A women's retreat with Miriam Peretz, featuring Shirin Anjuna and Marie Trezanini
A women’s retreat for embodied healing through Sacred Dance, Yoga, and Devotional song!
In this retreat we will dive deep into the soul trait of compassion (Rahma/Rehem- womb) connecting to the divine mother, eternal source of compassion. Through our dance, song and chant we will explore how we can embody the divine mother and the soul trait of compassion. We will open our womb, heart and full being to deep healing through the movement journeys, ocean currents, sisterhood and songs for the mother. Each day will journey through morning yoga practices, ritual infused dance, vocal and percussive sessions, immersion in the ocean and guided improvisation. The retreat will culminate in a site-specific prayer-formance of song and dance in the temple of Delphi. It will be a deeply layered ritual that will include all of our collective sacred movement practices, prayers, songs and intentions for calling compassion into our lives and into the worldful way.
