I will be offering Authentic Movement, Sacred Movement as part of this deep offering Sacred Pattern: Balancing the Feminine and Masculine within ourselves and within our world. Sponsored by Rumi’s Circle in Kendal, England

SACRED PATTERN
Balancing the Feminine & Masculine
within ourselves, within our world

It seems evident that deep respect and harmony between the masculine and feminine principles of existence is necessary for the well-being of individuals and society as a whole. We recognise that our spiritual heritages offer much guidance as to how we might authentically manifest these principles, yet we recognise that cultural and socially mandated “norms” concerning gender can often hinder genuine self-discovery and expression. We trust that human beings can be free to discover and determine for themselves how to manifest and express the Divine Feminine and Masculine, and that what might generally be described as masculine can be within the realm of the feminine and vice versa.

Rumi’s Circle began this conversation in 2016 by honouring the feminine aspect of the Divine. We were driven by a concern both for the degradation of the Divine Feminine and the imbalance we perceive between the masculine and the feminine in the wider world. We are now continuing the conversation by exploring the Divine patterning of existence and how to integrate and balance the feminine and masculine principles within ourselves and within our interactions with all of creation.

Join us to experience diverse spiritual practices that bring us to balance and wholeness, including work with prayer, meditation, sound, breath, and movement.
