Guide: Kelly Van Raalte
The Sacred Circle Dance was introduced to the Findhorn Foundation community in Scotland in 1976 by Bernhard Wosien who brought traditional circle dances that he’d gathered from across Eastern Europe. The dance has thrived worldwide as dancers engage with the power of the circle as it moves and transforms energy. Sacred Circle Dance offers a way of being and relating, and an opportunity to experience oneness with each other and the world.
No dance experience necessary. Please wear comfortable clothing, socks or soft shoes.
