A Word about Fragrances

We ask you to refrain from wearing fragrances. Some of the dance movements bring us very close to each other physically, and the chemicals in perfumes, colognes, and aftershaves can cause a severe reaction for those who are sensitive. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in his matter.


Annual Retreat 

We hold an annual retreat over the Martin Luther King, Jr., weekend with Senior Dance Leaders such as Tasnim Hermila Fernandez, Tui Wilschinsky, Vanessa Hafiza Regan, and Yarrow Nelson leading us in practices, stories, and poetry readings to deepen our connection with the teachings underlying the Dances. To be placed on the mailing list for the retreat, contact Yarrow Nelson at (805) 438-3662 or yarrownelson@gmail.com.

We have been asked whether it is appropriate for children to participate. This really depends upon the temperament of the child. We love having children join us! They just need to be able to listen and follow directions without needing the supervision of a parent.

We are available to lead the Dances for special events, gatherings, conferences, etc. -- any time a group would benefit from connecting at the heart level to deepen in the understanding of the mystical experience found through many paths.
