The Sophia Retreat: SEEDs of Transformation for Women

… with Jennifer Ferraro and nationally recognized
belly dance performer ⁄ teacher Myra Krien

 

This powerful retreat will help you to discover and embody your own voice and hidden depths through the soulful healing arts of belly dance and poetry. Poetry has the capacity to gently guide us back to our most authentic selves, our most intimate questions, concerns and longings. Belly dance exalts the sacred feminine and connects mind, heart and body in ways that bring fresh life and vigor to the soul. Both belly dance and poetry offer us potent tools for our healing, greater authenticity, and spiritual empowerment as women. Both are paths of Sophia – the feminine divine wisdom.
Over three playful, rich days we will work with belly dance and spoken word poetry/prayers/ invocations—as the deeply connected sister arts they are. We will attune to our own voices and “embody” our words, prayers, and invocations through our movements, expressing more fully the passion and purpose of the soul.

Santa Fe, New Mexico   |  October 3-6, 2013

2012 WORKSHOPS ⁄ EVENTS…

The Healing Word: Coming Home to Your Heart
and Soul through Poetry

How long has it been since you came home to yourself?

 

This workshop will help you to discover (or rediscover!) your own voice and hidden depths. Poetry has the capacity to gently guide us back to our most authentic selves, our most intimate questions, concerns and longings. It can help us to fathom our experience and distill it into something meaningful, making us more present and alive to the moment. Using poetic devices such as metaphor, image, line, sound, and symbol, we can unlock new ways of seeing and experiencing – and a deeper connection to one’s inner life. Each session we will work with a different healing ⁄ spiritual theme, and discuss a few powerful poems as a spring board into self- reflection and inspiration. Using prompts, music, meditation, and other creative techniques to inspire and deepen our consciousness, we will do free-writing in class and also share poems we have worked on outside of class over the week. The emphasis of this workshop will be inspirational and supportive rather than critical – all writing abilities and levels are welcome. This workshop aims to create a safe and supportive environment for heartfelt sharing, personal exploration, inspiration, and healing through poetry.

Sacred Ways of the Goddess: Bellydance and Ecstatic Poetry

 

Belly dance exalts the sacred feminine and connects mind, heart and body in ways that bring fresh life and vigor to the soul. In this workshop we will attune to Love, longing and passionate embodiment through the practices of sensuous sacred movement (bellydance) and the sharing of ecstatic spiritual and love poetry – two modes of expression sacred to the Goddess. Delve into your deep feminine nature and connect with other women in a playful, supportive and inspiring circle. No experience needed… only willingness to play and explore! (Women only).
