Dancing Earth is honored to offer four workshops in Yelamu – occupied territory of the Ohlone. We invite community to come together for cumulative practices over 4 sessions, that invoke movement for movement building, by integrating intuition, instinct and imagination ; exploring decolonization; reconnecting with the source of dance, restoring and re-story-ing, reconnection with the natural world and , kinetic access to ancestral and futuristic wisdom, finding rhythm as a community. These practices center Indigenous worldview, dance as purposeful ritual, body as source for knowing, and regenerative relationships with self, community , non human relatives and planet for a more loving, compassionate, tolerant and sustainable future…
