What this course is about:

Reconnect to Source through movement and Dance

Dance as a Spiritual Practice 
is a 30-day program taught by Leslie Zehr, Sacred Dance instructor from Egypt and author of The Alchemy of Dance: Sacred Dance as a Path to the Universal DancerThis course is offered four times per year (August, January, April and June). The program is designed to introduce the student to the elements of sacred dance and how it can be used as a spiritual practice. Through her book and classes, Leslie has taught hundreds of women the art of Sacred Dance.

The program is a balance of theory and practice. There are videos to explain the concepts and practices, guided movement exercises to reinforce the concepts and give you a personal experience, as well as weekly Facebook Lives to answer questions and a private online community to interact with the instructor and other students.

This course is an opportunity to experience Dance as a moving meditation with no expectations about what it looks like, only what it feels like from the inside. You need not be a dancer or have any previous dance experience.

 The practices are simple and fun, bringing the element of joy to your spiritual practice. After 30 days you will leave the course with a very simple 20-minute movement practice that can be done daily.

What students are saying...

Leslie has very well broken down her dance course into digestible information along with practical exercises that are fun and reflective. It’s about dancing with depth and accessing one's multidimensional aspects (Physical, emotional, mental, spiritual) with curiosity and non-judgment. It is a wonderful practice useful for those who want to explore personal and spiritual growth through movement. I really enjoyed both the live and online workshop versions!”— Rawan Husseini

“I love how this course weds simplicity with profundity. Leslie has a wonderful understanding of what is foundational to a spiritual dance practice. From her building blocks one can plunge into the depths and fly to the heavens as you will. Great course!! Leslie's book also adds important embellishments and ideas for further dance practice strategies. It's a great help and inspiration.”—Charlotte Hussey, MFA, PhD, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Leslie offers a course that reaches you to connect to your mind, body and spirit through movement, sound and vibration. I greatly enjoyed this course and would take another if she offered.”— Paula Petri, Wisconsin, USA

The platform for the course is easy and organized. The practice itself has opened me up to another level of spiritual connection within myself.”— Robin Kimbrel Wiggs, Colorado, USA
