A Sacred Dance Summer Workshop at St. Andrew’s Abbey led by John West

Come and dance our renewal into the circle of Earth’s community. Let this be our sign of unity! Musicians, poets, artists, and dancers of all levels are invited to responsibly join together and create sacred art in tribute to the place of our birth and ongoing transformation. Participants will have the opportunity to offer the work of previous days in an outdoor prayerful setting. Bring comfortable clothes and your creative masks! Join dancers, musicians, artists, liturgists, and poets of faith to voice, dance & step into new ways of creativity and prayer. Our work will help us recharge our energies and commitment to renewal.

John West is an oblate of Valyermo and the founder of the Valyermo Dancers. A gifted dancer, choreographer, liturgist, and writer, he has been conducting workshops at St. Andrew’s and Holy Spirit Retreat Center, as well as at international and national collegiate and university levels.
