Does any of this sound like you?

  • You enjoy movement but don’t see yourself as a “dancer”.

  • You feel disconnect from your body.

  • You would like to feel more connected to Spirit.

  • You have a spiritual practice but are not excited to do it.

  • You need more joy and fun in your daily life.

  • You don’t feel you have enough time in your day for a spiritual practice.

  • You love to dance but don’t do it often enough.

If so, you’re not alone.

Many people wish to add movement to their spiritual practice but don’t know how to do it or where to begin.

But what would happen if you could let go of limiting personal and cultural ideas that you need to be a professional dancer to “Dance”? Or that joy and movement are not part of a spiritual practice? What might your spiritual practice look like if you could transform limiting beliefs, and reconnect to Spirit through movement and experience joy and transcendence beyond anything you’ve ever experienced before?

You can!! All of this is possible, and I will show you how in my program:


Dance as a Spiritual Practice

 

The program is a balance of theory and practice. The concepts and practices are explained and then reinforce through guided movement exercises—creating a personal experience for the student to draw on.

This program 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. You will leave the course with a very simple 20-minute movement practice that can be done daily.

During the program, you will:

  • Explore the concepts of the sacred and spiritual

  • Discover the power of sacred dance and healing dance

  • Learn how to ground and center, and why these are so important to the Dance and your daily life.

  • Learn techniques for relaxation, receptivity and how to become the vessel.

  • Create your own daily spiritual practice using movement and dance.

  • Discover the importance of presence and how to engage the deeper aspects of your Self in the Dance.

This program is for you if:

  • You feel there is something missing from your spiritual practice, even if you don’t quite know what it is.

  • You want to experience the fun and joy of an embodied spiritual practice, but don’t know quite how.

  • You want to reach the deeper, more sacred, levels of dance.

  • You want your spiritual practice to include transcendence and embodiment at the same time.

  • You need help building a daily spiritual practice with movement.

  • You feel that you need guidance with specific movements that would be appropriate for achieving sacred or spiritual states of being.

What’s included in the online program:

  • Workbook

    A downloadable, printer friendly, workbook with exercises, questions and a place to journal and reflect on your experiences

  • Videos

    Four 30-40 minute replay videos explaining the concepts behind the movement exercises

  • Movement Exercises

    Guided movement exercises that can be used to create your own daily practice

  • Community

    An online Facebook group. Interact with other students and the instructor in a closed group—ask questions and share experiences

You’ll come away with:

  • A deeper understanding of how to connect to Spirit through the body.

  • A simple 20-minute movement practice that can be done daily.

  • A clear understanding of sacred space and how to create a sacred space for your spiritual practice.

  • Journaling techniques to help you process your dance experiences.

  • Continued supported through a private online Facebook community.

This course was beautiful! Leslie has done a magnificent job of giving us an experience of sacred dance practice, and this course is first and foremost - an experience. The basics are wonderfully laid out, simple, clear, easy to understand, and open doors for new insight and exploration. After this course, I feel confident to teach my own practice that I have been developing for years. You can be a complete beginner, have dance as a part of your spiritual practice already, or be a facilitator of some sort of healing dance - this course has a lot to offer.

Instructor

Leslie Zehr

Writer Leslie Zehr teaches Sacred Dance, helping women reconnect to the sacred feminine. She is also the host of the Sacred Dance Summit, as well as being an aromatherapist, hypnotherapist, reiki master and astrologer. She has published two books, "The Alchemy of Dance: Sacred Dance as a Path to the Universal Dancer," and "The Al-chemia Remedies: Vibrational Essences from Egyptian Flowers and Sacred Sites." In her more than 30 years in Egypt, Leslie has created innumerable projects. Leslie's main work has been the Universal Dancer, a method she developed through her own spiritual and transformational journey in Egypt and through which she teaches Sacred Dance, a meditational form of dance that empowers women, reconnecting them to the sacred feminine within while at the same time being both healing and transformational. Through dance, Leslie retells the archetypal stories using music, primordial energies, sacred geometry, wave motion and vibration, taking women back through time to the essence of their being, initiating and unlocking the esoteric wisdom buried deep within their psyche. Her workshops have been attended by hundreds of women of different nationalities and taken her from Cairo and ancient Egyptian temples along the Nile River to studios and centers in New York, Maine, Maryland, Arizona, Washington and Puerto Rico.

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
