Treat yourself to a day of unalloyed joy and release!
Be inspired as you join us for a day of incredible and fantastical dance and fire.
Does this sound extraordinary?
You’re right. That’s exactly the word to describe our Fire and Whirling Dance Workshop – an extraordinary, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to enjoy a beautiful and therapeutic experience.
The day will focus on the inspirational talents of Rachel Ackerman from the USA and Anna Whirling from Ukraine.
Rad Rachel Ackerman
Rad Rachel is an international fire performer and dancer from California. She is a core member and choreographer of the Sacred Fire Dance community.
Rachel is passionate about helping people be their most authentic self. Her mission is to make the world a better place by helping to heal one beautiful soul at a time. We all possess the tools to heal ourselves, but sometimes we need guidance to see it - and courage to own it. This is Rachel’s amazing skill – she helps us along the path of healing, using the power of fire!
Join us for the workshop and learn the art of stick dancing with Rad Rachel in partnership and in group formation. You will learn the stick dance and in the evening your sticks will be lit as you will perform the fire stick dance.
Anna Whirling is renowned throughout the world for her phenomenally powerful fire whirling dance. Join us as Anna shares the joy of whirling. See her perform her fire whirling dance in a moonlit woodland setting.
Do you remember how, as a child, you loved to spin and whirl – just for pleasure? In her workshop, Anna will share and explain her fascination for whirling and how, as adults, we can derive so much joy from this simple activity. After all, as our planet spins, we’re unconsciously circling every day of our lives. It’s the natural flow of life – to whirl.
Share Anna’s love of whirling in her mesmerizing, fun and connected workshop. She will teach us how to whirl in deep meditation and to be free and present in thought.
We’ll find out too how Anna designs and creates her incredible fire whirling skirts.
Set aside Wednesday, July 21st as a day for fun, learning and release. We’d love you to join us!
