Dance as a Spiritual Practice - Online Course
Date: February 1, 2015- February 8, 2015
Location: Online - From Cairo
A short on line course taught by Leslie Zehr, Esoteric Dance teacher from Egypt and author of The Alchemy of Dance: Sacred Dance as a Path to the Universal Dancer, designed to introduce the student to the elements of sacred dance and how it can be used as a spiritual practice.
Students will learn the concept of sacred or healing dancing, how it evolved and why it is important in our lives. We will discuss how it can reconnect us to the Divine Feminine, be used as a spiritual practice and why it is so important to reconnect with the earth’s rhythm.
The workshop is mainly a lecture with some movement exercises. You need not be a dancer or have any dance experience. The exercises are simple and fun. By the end of the course you will know how to develop a simple practice of sacred dance for yourself.

After becoming initiated by the Serpent Goddess in Upper Egypt in 2002, Leslie developed a simple method of teaching sacred dance and esoteric wisdom that has taught many women from all over the world how to reconnect with the Divine Feminine aspect within them. Dance Alchemy is the sacred dance of the Serpent Goddess. She teaches us the ancient ways of transmuting energy through our bodies using rhythm and primordial movements. In this interactive workshop students will learn the first part of that process, how to use movement and dance as a spiritual practice.
