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
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
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.
