What is the Equinox? 

 

SPRING EQUINOX

 

Equinoxes occur twice yearly and are the times when

the length of day and night are equal. The word Equinoxc  comes from Latin and means

“equality of night and day.” At Equinox, the sun is directly over the Earth's equator. The Vernal Equinox occurs between  March 19 & 22 and  the autumnal Equinoxa about September 21. The March Equinox marks the moment the Sun crosses

the celestial equator – the imaginary line in the sky

above the Earth's equator – from south to north. 

 

Spring is a season associated with change, cleansing,

and new beginnings.  Daylight starts to increase, showing us the earth is about to tip over to more light, an illuminating and sublime reminder that light is returning  to earth. We are brought new light and life, new  geginnings, seeds, and a new path. It is a time of plant life and growth blooming gloriously as we are being  ushered to a renewed sense of energy.  

 

The promise of better weather is definitely something

to celebrate, it also has spiritual meaning.  Celebrating

the sun's journey has been an integral part of life

through the centuries with people performing rituals

during the Equinox to cleanse out old energy in

themselves and in their homes. 

 

Many ancient civilizations built cities congruent with

the sun's journey through the seasons.  

 

In many traditions the Spring Equinox is an incredibly important time. The ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Mayans celebrated the resurrections of their gods, and the temple of Angkor Wat in Cambodia aligns to the rays of light on Spring Equinox. In Christianity, the Spring Equinox is the time of passion, crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus. 

 

In many parts of Europe, the Equinox was once considered the beginning of the New Year. The fact

that day and night are equal on the day of the Equinox represents our need for balance and alignment at this time. This is the best time of year to focus on new projects, getting rid of things that no longer serve you, and finding the right balance in your life.

If this sounds like exactly what you need, it’s a good time to celebrate — come join us in the Dance! 

What a perfect time to  marry the two at

spring equinox time

What is Sacred Circle Dance?

 

The Roots of The 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

earth relationships.

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.
