Sound and rhythm are ancient embodyments of abstract form. I will be utilizing many different sound currents from all parts of the world to bring a journey into the senses. Will also prayer~form a sacred raven headdress belly dance piece.
With some lightly guided meditative imagery into the underworld we will ground and nurture our bodies with Mother Earth.
