in Crete, September 18-20 2009
A waves workshop based on Gabrielle Roth’s 5 Rhythms™ dancework
with Cora Greenhill
Dance by the ocean to re-connect with our natural rhythms, with the beat of our hearts, with our feet on the ground, with our shadows and light, with each other and our wounded earth. Dance in a land sacred to the dance of the Goddess for thousands of years. Be still in a landscape of mountains and caves where you can feel Her awesome mystery, even as modernity scars Her body..
Dance to free our bodies, heart and spirits, to help empower ourselves as women to make the differences we long for.
Join an international group of women who long to express themselves in dance. Whether we are on holiday, or on a journey, or native to Crete, we will share our inner and outer pilgrimages for these few precious days.
Includes a slide show on the ecstatic Goddess culture of ancient Crete.
If you would like
to follow up the workshop with a pilgrimage to some Goddess temples and sacred
caves on the island, please let me know when you book. If there are a few people,
I will arrange and cost it.

Apartment Hotel is our venue, right on the edge of Souda Bay. The hotel
has the triple function of apartment hotel, venue for large Cretan functions
such as weddings, and down below a growing spiritual and healing centre
run by our multi-talented host, Ingrid. This means you can dance, sleep,
and even party to traditional and modern music in the same venue, not to
mention swimming in the lovely private pool or hanging out at the poolside
bar. There are beaches within walking or a short drive away. Chania Airport
is about 25 mins drive away, as is the lovely city of Chania with its Venetian
Harbour and museums.
