Spiritual Summer Camp: Sacred Circle Dancing: Celebrating the Spirit and Beauty of Summer

Thursday, August 3, 2017 | 5:30pm

Why should kids have all the fun? Join us Thursday evenings this summer as we explore playful practices that nourish the spirit. Bring your friends or make new ones as we dance, sing, create and laugh together.

Join us in dance as we celebrate the beauty of summer. Sacred Circle Dances are moving meditations that embody and integrate mind, body and spirit. These simple, gentle dances have ancient roots in music and dance from around the world and represent cultural embodiments of different faiths. Powerful in their effect, they evoke a spiritual dimension leading to harmony and balance. Dancing together, we affirm community, connecting to ourselves, and each other. No previous dance experience is needed. All dances are simple and each will be taught. Our philosophy of dance is, “There are no mistakes, only variations.”

Led by Evi Beck and Judith Walton.


Evelyn Torton Beck, Ph.D., is Women’s Studies Professor Emerita and a long-time teacher of Sacred Circle Dance as a healing practice. She has brought this form of dance to her teaching at the University, as well as to professional groups and ongoing dance circles. By means of dance, she aims to integrate mind, body and spirit. This form of dance is central to her spiritual practice.

Judith Walton, Ph.D. has been teaching Sacred Circle Dance for more than 20 years and uses the power of dance with diverse groups to achieve wholeness, harmony, and balance. She learned many of these dances at Findhorn, a spiritual and ecological community in Scotland. She is a trainer and an organizational development consultant and offers dance circles.
