Dance Camp 2011 Feedback from a new camper:
“The field where the camp is held is gorgeous, surrounded by ancient trees which are home to many nesting pairs of Red Kites which spiral over the camp during the day showering blessings from Great Spirit to all below.
The Dances are the most important aspect of the camp but there is space for so much more. Singing together and rediscovering our beautiful voices, long forgotten or hidden. Meditation and Yoga… Natural Saunas Latvian style…Ragas and Bhajans… Djembe beats and tai chi…. Women’s and Men’s groups…. Shamanic sharing and journeys… compost toilets and beautiful warm outdoor showers.I came back from this camp re-born and re-juvenated. It felt like coming home. Somehow for me the circle had been completed and I now move forward with a deep knowledge of the intrinsic beauty of humanity when we work together for the greater good.”
The Dances of Universal Peace are the main focus of the Sacred Arts Camp. These simple circle dances, which can be wonderfully joyful and yet profoundly moving, are inspired by the wisdom and sacred phrases of a number of spiritual traditions. Essentially they are a form of meditation through sacred sounds and devotional movements.
Daily sessions will be led by certified dance leaders.
Sing your heart out. Experience the joy of singing together, explore your voice, discover harmony and learn beautiful songs from many sources including: sacred, African, gospel, contemporary and traditional.
Other activities include Circle Dance, Drumming workshops, Yoga, Arts & Crafts, Hoopdance and Storytelling.
The Creativity Area theme this year is Awakening.
For children of all ages, camp is a wonderful opportunity for natural play and making new friends.
Teenagers form a vibrant community within the camp, creating music, sharing and forming long lasting friendships. They will be supported in organising workshops, games and sports.
Look out for spontaneous creative events!
Story time for children and adults with exciting and enthusiastic storytellers every evening.
There are opportunities for people to meet in groups to share and explore current themes and celebrate ways of welcoming young adults into our community.
