Embodying Praise: Sacred Traditions of Movement
School of Consciousness and Transformation PARW 6788 1.00
This course is a personal, experiential, and multicultural exploration of historic and contemporary sacred dance traditions. It does not require dance experience or aptitude - just the desire to move together in a safe space. We will review the movements and world views of selected African and Asian dance traditions, the praise dance tradition of the modern black Christian church, and contemporary dance practices that invoke and embody Spirit. The class will include group movement and lecture demonstrations led by master teachers who will reflect on their specific dance traditions and the use and performance of these traditions in contemporary times.
