Zoom: Dancing with Earth, Singing with Sky

With Betsey Beckman

January 16, 2021

Our bodies connect us to Earth, and can lead us to a deep encounter with the sacred.  Explore a series of simple dance/song prayers that invite us to experience nature as our original place of holy encounter – Earth as monastery, cathedral, icon, sacrament and spiritual director. Songs and dances were commissioned by Abbey of the Arts to accompany the book by Christine Valters Painter, Earth Our Original Monastery: Fostering Wonder and Gratitude through Intimacy with nature.
Betsey says: “The dances I will be teaching in this retreat  come from our new collection published by Abbey of the Arts entitled:  Earth, Our Original Monastery: Dancing with the Divine.  Join us for a day of bowing to earth and reaching to sky!
