Women’s 7Directions Ongoing Group
What is 7Directions?
7Directions is a dance ceremony and healing practice that combines conscious dance, earth-based ceremony, world/pop music, subtle energy work, and creative art to facilitate personal awareness and spiritual growth.
Throughout, we invoke a relationship with seven essential places–east, south, west, north, below, above and within–to create a loving yet powerful sacred container for our highest good and deepest healing
“7Directions is a warm and open-minded space to let loose, process through my emotions physically, and miraculously bring my intentions to reality. Dancing with and bearing witness to the stories of the other amazing women each month has become a safe harbor on my journey.” Diana D.
“7Directions has carried me with grace through an extremely intense and difficult year. Every time I receive an opportunity to drop in, connect with spirit, move energy and express myself fully. Whatever emotions or situations I am working on in life, I can dance with them in circle in a sacred context, and I find I always return to reverence and joy.” Rebecca E.
If you already recognize dance, music and earth-based ceremony as essential, this spiritual practice will feel like coming home.
If a busy life means scheduling your self-care, this monthly three hour experience will nourish you in a timely way.
If you’re a woman yearning to find your voice and dance your truth, this confidential women’s space will hold you with gentle loving strength.
Join Staci Boden and Jane Sanguinetti as they co-facilitate an ongoing women’s circle where the healing potency of free-form dance, eclectic music and creative art meets the nourishing power of a women’s group. Held within an earth-based ceremony, 7Directions creates a loving space for women to connect and transform their lives. Women share, laugh, dance, listen, grieve, learn, celebrate, make art and eat yummy food alongside each other.
After circling up for personal check-ins, we move into dance ceremony. Accompanied by a blend of tribal, world, electronic and pop music, women are free to explore intentions, follow energy, and discover their own sense of rhythm. We complete with drawing and journaling by candlelight before offering blessings. Through each session, 7Directions becomes a nourishing women’s gathering, and also a way to learn how to dance through any life circumstance.
