A Welcome Message from Hannah
February 02, 2018
Are you hungry to explore the relationship between dance, spirituality and healing? If you’re like me and many of my clients who are on a spiritual journey, you have discovered the incredible power of dance and its ability to touch something deep within your soul. In the 20 years I have been studying, embodying and teaching various traditions of dance, I discovered that there is indeed a very powerful coding embedded in dance that, come from an ancient lineage of embodied wisdom that has the power to both heal and transform.
I have found that each dance imparts a unique sensation, nuance, and character, that goes much deeper than choreography and costumes. Stepping into each one is like wearing the precious sacred garment of a culture, a tradition emanating from a particular landscape and rich history of its people, with its own spiritual legacy that feeds into the larger wisdom stream. And like precious garments threaded together with love and unique intention, each dance allows you to try on and reintegrate an aspect of yourself that perhaps has been lost or in hiding. The spiritual exploration of dance has allowed me to reclaim aspects of myself, especially authentic expressions of femininity that had been scattered, lost, or disowned, deepening my connection to my deeper wisdom as well as all of humanity. And now I want to help you through this powerful journey.
After spending decades distilling the embodied wisdom of various dance traditions, I have found how deeply connected they are to the Divine Feminine, and how they can serve as a sacred practice, activating the subtle energies of the body. Dance can become a portal through which we can pass, transmuting heavier energies so they may be released, reminding us that we are all a spark of the Divine, made in her image, and our natural state is brimming with joy, love, and sensuality.
If you want to begin the process of opening this powerful portal, I invite you to download the guided meditation “Scheherazade’s journey deep within the Feminine soul”, which will start the journey to transform your spiritual path into a beautiful sacred dance of awakening.
Thank you for taking this time to be with me and explore these ideas within yourself. Until we meet again, may your light dance brightly.
FREE GUIDED JOURNEY
I just spent two days with Hannah and a diverse group of spirited women on the Spin, Shake, Sway workshop exploring whirling and the Moroccan Guedra, and the experience made me reconnect with dancing at a very deep and intense level. I felt so alive and free in the space where your body and your soul intersect, and beauty and healing naturally happen. The location was magical and the perfect setting for our group.
For the past three years Hannah’s performance and teaching has been a highlight of my annual women’s weekend. She is a gifted, creative, expert dancer who engages and amazes the audience with her style and skill. It’s beautiful to watch her flow, bend, glide, and shimmy. Dancing with her is a blast! All my women friends loved it.
Hannah’s workshop was exhilarating, joyful, and educational. I felt uplifted afterwards, and emerged with a positive feeling of lightness.
Hannah radiates an inner joy, a celebration of the divine, that glows and grows inside her audience. Dancing with Hannah, one is finds herself channeled into the timeless essence of feminine grace, connecting to all women past and present, freeing us to express our true innate beauty
The potency of sacred women’s spaces was made evident to me during this beautiful two day healing dance ritual. That experience of learning, of playing, and of connecting to our feminine power through community and the container held so humbly and graciously by Hannah will stay with me forever, and has become fuel for a new passion in my life to explore Sufi and Berber traditional, meditative dance. My deepest gratitude goes to all women of the dance, now, and throughout all of time.
A week later and still relishing in the magical afterglow! Seriously, much to my surprise I am still reaping the benefits and riding the waves of such a weekend. Personally it was an end of an era, and what better way to initiate a new beginning, than to breathe in new life with ritual, spinning, baddass women, wonderful food, perfect location and gorgeous weather. Outstanding!
I first saw Hannah dance Persian style at a party and was immediately in awe of her self-possessed beauty that comes through her style of dance. I wanted to learn that! I had gone through a tough 18 months of sorrow and grief after loosing my partner of 15 years and mom within six months of each other. Hannah choreographed a Persian dance specifically for me that would help open my heart. And she helped mend my heart and soul through private lessons and learning her dance. I would recommend h…
Hannah loves transmitting her knowledge of world dance to kids and they feel it. She engages them in both the movements and the understanding of the traditions of the dances. The kids learn to appreciate the pure joy of moving, the history of the dances and choreographing their own pieces. It’s great to see the kids enjoying the discipline of the different traditions while having a lot of fun.
