  • Explore how Hathor represents the Divine Feminine.
  • Understand why it is important for women of this time to reconnect with this archetype.

Overview

The three-month Sacred Dance Mentoring Program is based on Leslie's book The Alchemy of Dance: Sacred Dance as a Path to the Universal Dancer. If you have already read her book you will understand her process of going through the lines of the Tarot to create a form.
 
We begin by building a base. The first two Modules, Dance as a Spiritual Practice and  Hat-hor Goddess of Love and Empowerment, focus on using movement to connect with the Divine, finding inner space, exploring aspects of the Divine Feminine, creating Sacred Space and other tools we need to create and maintain a spiritual practice that will allow our inner potential to blossom.


Once we have built the base we are ready to move on to the next dimension of the Dance. In The Alchemy of Dance we move everything we have learned to a higher level. The three-month program is meant to be a comprehensive program for those wishing to use Dance as their spiritual practice and a way to connect tot he Divine.

The materials used for the mentoring process were developed from Leslie's books and previous courses. The program runs three consecutive months (in three four week sessions), the fee is $500 for the entire three-month program.


If you have already taken some of the courses live or online please contact Leslie to assess how to integrate that into the three-month program.

Women will learn how to reconnect with the earth’s rhythm using dance as a spiritual practice. Various methods such as initiation, kinetics as well as transmission are used to achieve this connection.
