YA MARYAM:  DANCING WITH THE DAUGHTER AND THE MOTHER
This workshop was presented for the first time in July 2013 as an all-day dance and evening deepening session.  It is a continuation of the work begun with Dancing with Mary Magdalene; most of the formats above would work for this workshop as well.  Workshops could also be designed to combine dances and ceremonies from both collections.

 

OTHER WAYS TO CONTINUE THE WORK

  Include dances in regular monthly dance meetings.
   – Create a regularly scheduled dance meeting focusing on DMM dances; i.e., bi-monthly; quarterly; etc.

   – Performance dances at churches or events (sample videos available upon request)
   – Dances/chants at a Goddess/Divine Feminine event
