The Earth Spirit Circles are seasonal rituals and usually include some circle dance and chanting.
There are usually three to four earth spirituality/sacred circle dance events offered each month plus an occasional special event. No partners or experience needed. Sacred circle dance is a worldwide spiritual practice originating with the spiritual community at Findhorn in Scotland.
Mary maintains a blog about the dances and music we use.

Wear comfortable clothes. Many wear long skirts but you can wear whatever you feel comfortable in.
Our mantra is: There are no wrong steps only variations. Yes, people with “two left feet” are very welcome.
These are self-care circles.
The facilitators can help you adapt the dance for any physical issues you may experience. For instance, some people don’t spin around or raise their arms. Often people sit out a dance or two and just watch.
If you happen to come in late, just wait till the start of the next dance.
Usually we end each dance by holding hands for a while and sinking into the feeling of the dance.
We break about half way through and sometimes someone has brought a snack to share. We almost always have water and tea out for participants.
Usual Location: Hewett Centre Hall (or try Sanctuary stage for Sunday afternoons or Lindsey-Priestley in the Hall for GLAD). If in doubt, check the “Events” board outside of Hewett Hall, to the right of the entrance door.
