Bellydance: Ancient Roots and Modern Miracles

Bellydance is one of the oldest sacred dance practices in the world. Today it is most often seen as entertainment, exercise, an expression of ethnic traditions and a creative modality for emerging new art. Bellydance is also a potent spiritual practice infused with sensuality, beauty, depth and transformation.

At its core bellydance is a celebration of the creative principle. In ancient times, the feminine form was recognized to be the embodiment of the giver of life and bellydance was a way of honoring and evoking the creative force of the universe.

Sensual Awakening Bellydance is not a typical dance classe. You will enter into a space that is a re-visioning of the mystical healing temples of old, where abiding in the blessed enchanted world and relating as our highest selves can soothe our hearts and lift our spirits as we embody, empower and awaken to our Radiance.

As we embody this powerful spiritual vibrance, we can offer awakening transmission to others. We can spark each other’s latent potentials as we awaken to our own deepest selves. As we dance, layers of shame, fear, limiting thoughts and beliefs, these heavy veils of illusion, drop; revealing the shimmering multi-faceted jeweled Temple. All that is needed is a safe container, a mutually held intent, your fiery passion and a willingness to be available.

These experiences of energetic empowerment become touchstones to help recharge us as we go out into a world that desperately needs Your Unique Radiant Awakened Presence. Our hearts long for the world we deeply know is possible that are illumined in our mystical experiences. By embodying Your Radiance, your life, the lives of the people and world around you, all miraculously transform as we birth the vision that lives in our deepest hearts through all we say, all we touch, all we do and think. In this way, our dance becomes a vibrational prayer suffused with our highest intentions.

With Sensual Awakening Bellydance we hold the veils open for the Mystery to shine through, to align with some of the highest possibilities available to then embody this into the wide world.

Welcome to the vibrant, juicy, passionate and deeply spiritual path of the sexy Bodhisattvas!

Ecstatic Healing Bellydance Events

For women with no-to-pro bellydance experience

Radiance and Bliss live as your deepest Self, always available in this eternal moment. Yet this Mystery behind the Veils of illusion, those hard earned and even harder released habits of separation and fear, can not be forced or bullied open. In our busy NYC lives, there are few opportunities for the sensitivity, availability, safety and permission for the Veils to part and reveal your Radiant Jeweled Self within the Temple of Sensual Secrets.

Be the Temple is emotional depth, juicy enlivening and spiritual nurturing for all New York City Warrioresses and serves as an introduction to the transformational healing power of Sensual Embodied Awakening Bellydance.

Welcome to the Temple

This is the foundational course and prerequisite for all other Sacred Bellydance events and series.

5 week series to awaken, deepen, empower and cultivate energetic fluency, receptivity and transmission

Whether you are new or old to bellydance, this course is an invitation into the mystical potentials and to the infinite wisdom of your body as The Temple of Sensual Secrets.

We will explore the eloquent vocabulary of the Sacred Shapes of bellydance to raise our vibrational intelligence, to release tensions and rejuvenate at the infinite Source. The Sacred Shapes of Bellydance awaken us to universal energies and are similar to energy cultivation practices such as chi gung, tai chi or yoga. You will feel those energies rise up from inside the depths of your own being and together we will discover how these potent shapes hold those energies between us as we dance together.

Our curriculum includes:
  • The Inner Lovers – the Sacred Shapes of Bellydance
  • Beholding – the power of intention, attention, openness and willingness to be moved
  • Vibrational Intelligence – music, movement, rhythm, emotional fluency, physical health, the Shadow and the art of getting out of our own way!
  • Bellydance Creation Story – an experiential model of emerging self
  • The Power of Ritual and the Origins of Performance
  • Transmission – The Dance of the Bee
  • Dedication – for those called to this dancing path you will have an opportunity to commit with heart, body and Soul to the Temple of Sensual Secrets and to her unique Goddess Temple Keeper
The Beat and the Breath

5 week series continuing from Welcome to the Temple to deepening energetic fluency, receptivity and transmission.
