Come celebrate life as we embrace death!
ALL are welcome to join us as we cultivate an environment to remember our loved ones, honor our ancestors, and heal our lineage through movement and dance.
We will begin with a guided grounding meditation and cleansing movement to prepare ourselves for connecting with our beloved dead. We will then travel together to the Isle of Apples to dance with our memories and emotions in a safe and nurturing space before ending with stillness.
Led and facilitated by Aubrey Griffith-Zill & Bruce Rozeboom. Soundscapes and percussion provided by Beats in the Bones. https://www.facebook.com/events/427544757775467/
