Sacred Dance Circles in Berkeley

Sephirot: From Liberation to Revelation
Dance Circle for Women

7-Week Series: April 12, 19, 26 & May 3, 10, 17, 24, 2018

Thursdays 7:15-9:30 pm with Julie Emden & Aliza Rothman Labowitz   

Dance, sing, share and learn together as we celebrate the counting of the Omer- the seven weeks between Passover/Liberation and Shavuot/Revelation.

We use conscious dance and expressive arts to explore each sephira in our bodies and in our lives. We integrate our dance experience with drawing and/or writing at the end of each evening.  We draw on teachings from the mystical tradition to deepen our spiritual practice in community & to explore the essence of each Sephirot on all levels of being. Each week we focus on one of the Seven Sephirot as designated by the Counting of the Omer in the tradition of the Jewish mystics:  chesed (lovingkindness), gevurah (strength, judgment, limits), tiferet (beauty, harmony), netzach (perseverance, endurance), hod (humility, gratitude), yesod (foundation, creativity, sexuality), malchut (divine manifestation here on earth), and Shavuot (integration, culmination, revelation).  

Sliding Scale: $175- $245 for the series.

Space is limited. Work-Study spaces available. Pre-registration is required.
