People of all cultures have moved and danced from the beginning of time to cry and pray for visions. Through these ways they received understanding, direction and moments of grace. They remembered, and lived both the sacredness and the connection of all living things. Dance, music and ritual speak to the soul and bridge body, heart and mind. We will offer our physical beings to space and motion, seek out wisdom from within, and create real and direct connections to the beyond, and with ancestral and spirit beings. In this quest, the soul transcends the profane human condition experience and expands one's capacity for truth, deeper connections, authentic love and ecstatic experience. Embraced by the forests, mountains & waters of Northern New Mexico; and led by Visudha de los Santos, this week-long WAVES retreat/intensive will offer a reprieve from ordinary life, and shift our attention inwardly towards the sacred.
