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.

What is the Summer Solstice?

 

The Summer Solstice (or estival solstice),

also known as Midsummer, occurs when

one of the Earth's poles has its maximum

tilt toward the Sun. It happens twice yearly, once

in  each hemisphere (Northern and Southern).

 

For that hemisphere, the Summer Solstice

is when the Sun reaches its highest position

 in the sky and is the day with the longest

period of daylight. At the pole, there is 

continuous daylight around the

SummerSolstice. 

 

The Summer Solstice occurs during

summer This is the June solstice in the 

Northern Hemisphere and the December solstice 

in the Southern Hemisphere.

Depending on the shift of the calendar, the

Summer Ssolstice occurs

sometime between June 20 and June 22

in the Northern Hemisphere and between

December 20 and December 23 in the

Southern Hemisphere. The same dates in

the opposite hemisphere are referred

to as the Winter Solstice. 

 

Since prehistory, the Summer Solstice has

beenseen as a significant time of year in

many cultures, and has been marked by

festivals and rituals. Traditionally, in

many temperate regions (especially

Europe), the Sommer Solstice is seen as the middle of summer and referred to as "Midsummer". Today, however, in some countries and calendars it is seen as

the beginning of summer.
