The Soul’s Slow Ripening: Dancing the Sacred on a Celtic Path

With Betsey Beckman

January 18, 2020

Explore a series of simple dance prayers inspired by the Celtic Saints! These songs and dances were commissioned by Abbey of the Arts to accompany the book by Christine Valters Paintner, The Soul’s Slow Ripening: 12 Celtic Practices for Seeking the Sacred. All are welcome; simple contemplative dances and practices for every-body! (Book, CD and DVD available for purchase.)


Betsey Beckman
As dancer, choreographer, author, mother, wife, teacher and spiritual director, I am passionate about living life fully and fostering creativity in all those with whom I share life and ministry. I am rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition, and am a member of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Seattle, where I also direct the dance ministry. While my artistry is also offered in a variety of ecumenical and Interfaith settings, I am deeply grateful for my home community of St. Pat’s, where our vibrant, Vatican II liturgies strengthen us to do the work of peace and justice in our world.
