Sacred Sundays - Moving Meditations - Honoring Prayers - with Mary Kamp
Date: September 27, 2020-
Location: On line from Cincinnati (7:30 pm EDT)
Sacred Sundays continue! From March through to the end of July 2020, the SDG joined many others offering on line gatherings to be “Socially Present” while “Physically Distant“! These live from our living room sessions are free, informal, intimate and interactive sharings and are open to a maximum of 25 participants who want to connect in this way. We took a break during the month of August while we wound down following the “Virtually There…. A Sacred Dance Experience” festival!
Beginning September we are ready to greet you at the screen door for the Fall/Winter sessions.
You must register for EACH week that you would like to attend by sending an email to email@example.com.
On Sunday, September 27th Mary Kamp will take us on an0ther adventure in sacred dance.

The very nature of the arts can and will touch the very soul of each of us.

This session is Honoring Prayers: Exploring the Ordinal – Seasonal – Elemental – Proprietorial of The Chant of the Four Directions. Beginning with a centering meditation we will move through the steps and prayer postures that have been used for thousands of years. Our focus will be on communal prayer, in this time of isolation our hearts may be crying out for community. Then we will move to an exploration of a song we know and cherish seeking to connect and deepen our understanding of the directions in four distinctly differing ways.
The Sacred Dance Guild is blessed to have Mary 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.
