Dance of the Goddess

- The Psychedelic Society, 8 Mackintosh Lane, London, UK
- Facebook event
Dance of the Goddess is a brand new creation from Gaia Harvey Jackson, facilitator of the Psychedelic Women’s Circle.
Over 2 hours we will journey through 5 different goddess archetypes, invoking their qualities, learning their myths and stories, and bringing their wisdom into our bodies.
This dance is based on Jean Shinoda Bolen’s book ‘Goddesses in Everywoman’, a classic work of female psychology that uses archetypal Greek goddesses as a way of describing behaviour patterns and personality traits, and combines it with the classic 5 Rhythms structure. Each goddess contains a particular energy or theme which is reflected in the music, taking you on journey through protection, warrior, rage, sensuality and the divine.
This dance has been developed to help women access different energies and emotions, to deepen our understanding of self, and heal the body and mind through movement and creative expression.
This is a sacred and playful space for women to explore, express and release. Together we create a safe environment to be free, to be wild, to be soft, to be vulnerable, to be powerful, to be seen, to be together.
The 5 Greek Goddesses:
Artemis - Goddess of the moon and the hunt. Protector of women.
Athena - Goddess of war, strategy. The Warrior.
Hera - Queen of heaven and earth. Rage.
Aphrodite - Goddess of beauty, sensuality, creativity, playfulness and self love.
Hestia - Goddess of the hearth. Connection with the divine, sacred priestess.
