The Roots of Sacred Circle Dance
What has become known as Sacred Circle Dance
(a collection of traditional and not so traditional dances)
is a grass roots phenomenon, which is practiced
around the World.
It has become especially interesting for facilitators
of dance therapy, of womens & mens’circles, for people who enjoy the ceremony of the dance and cultivating the energy of community and of the
There is no simple answer to explain the history
of Sacred Circle Dance.
While some trace the quickly spreading
phenomena to the seeds of Bernard Wosien, a
modern and ballet dancer in Europe in the
middle of this century, others trace it to Findhorn
in Scotland, one of the communities to which
Bernard brought the dances.
Others will trace the dance through ancient times
to the gnostic and mystic ways, through sufism
and teachers like Rumi, back into time.
For sure, we know that dance has been used as celebration since ancient times. Many of the
dances and steps that are used in today’s
Sacred Circle Dance go far back in time. Some
dances are modern music, choreographed by
dance facilitators around the world.
