SACRED SUNDAYS - MOVING MEDITATIONS - Sacred Play and Divine Laughter - with Carla Walter
Date: May 24, 2020-
Location: On Line - From Oakland, California

The SDG has joined the many others who are offering on line gatherings where we can be “Socially Present” while “Physically Distant“! These sessions are live from our living rooms, they are informal, intimate and interactive sharings and open to a maximum of 15 participants who want to connect in this way.   Register by emailing pres@sacreddanceguild.org 

This week our facilitator is Carla Walter from Oakland, California who will be talking about Making May Spirit Centered Laugher, and specifically Sacred Play and Divine Laughter. Dancers will be encouraged to set an intention, link sacred dance choreography to it, and then connect it to their intentions as they move through their days.  She will be using a dance from her most recent book (see link below) https://vimeo.com/322222767 the Sacred Dance Video from section in the book from May 22 – 30.

The Sacred Dance Guild is blessed to have Carla gifting her presence with us leading this Sacred Sunday Moving Meditation.  During this time when our lives have changed almost instantly, continuing our personal, collective and global mind/body/spirit connection is so important.  We are grateful for those who lead us on these journeys of discovery as we dance on waves of grace together.

We will be using ZOOM for Sunday’s sessions.  It is a simple and accessible program with no cost to participants. It can be used on a desktop, laptop, tablet or even cell phone. If you have not used ZOOM before join in a few minutes before 7:30 pm for a quick download prior to accessing the session. Using ZOOM you can hear/see the facilitators and choose whether others can SEE and HEAR you by turning OFF and ON your audio and video.

If you would like to join us this Sunday register by sending an email to pres@sacreddanceguild.org. If you are one of the first 15 you will be advised and a link will be sent to you by email prior to the Session Start time.  If we receive more than 15 registrants we will let you know and schedule you for a future Sunday session.

If you have questions do be in touch with me.

Continuing to dance on waves of grace….
