Dancing Down the Moon is an ancient practice to invoke the moon's energy. Since time immemorial, women have been the keepers of cycles and rhythms. It is intrinsic to us as women—part of our biology. Not only do we see the waxing and waning of the moon, we feel it, we respond to it.

In modern times we have become disconnected from nature and her cycles. We have moved so far from when women would take the time to gather to honor each other, nature, and our cycles.

Leslie has been holding women's circles and counseling women for more than 30 years. Holding space for others is Leslie's gift. She feels the importance and urgency for women to re-connect to the natural cycles and rhythms and to reclaim their position as time/cycle keepers. 

Leslie's intention is to support other women who also feel that calling. She aims to create a sacred space where women can come together, pause, and take a moment to connect. It is a time to re-member the Goddess, the Sacred Feminine, and honor her lunar cycles. It is a moment out of time where women can recharge, be nurtured, and be in-spired in alignment with the moon's cycles.

Technology allows us to connect with other women remotely, in spirit. It enables us to step out of our limited surroundings and interact with others—through space. Women from all over the world come together, meeting in one auspicious moment, out of time, with one focus, one purpose; to realign with nature through the illumination that the moon brings—an "illumination" that is even more potent in its dark phase.

This gathering is an opportunity to plant seeds for the coming month, step out of the mundane time, and enter magical time, sacred time, in a sacred space, just as our great-great-great-grandmothers did eons ago.

In these times of great stress and isolation, it is even more critical to connect to nature, find our natural rhythm and create community, even if virtually. 

Dancing Down the Moon is an online community devoted to keeping the ancient practice of honoring the moon alive. Each month there are two recorded ceremonies, on the dark and full moons, that you will do in the privacy of your own home, your sacred space. In addition, there is one live gathering towards the end of the cycle, after the full moon,  where all the women in the community can come together to discuss and process the month's illumination.

Join Leslie and a circle of women to gather at these auspicious moments to re-member the ancient practices long forgotten. We will use all the tools in our toolbox astrology, archetypes, journaling, guided visualization, and movement for our illumination and honor the moon in all her phases.

What Dancing Down the Moon offers:

  • An opportunity to meet and create a community with like-minded women

  • A circle of women to support your personal growth on your spiritual journey

  • Learning to align with nature and the lunar cycles

  • An embodied spiritual practice done in your own sacred space

Lunation Ceremonies

from Cairo, Egypt

  • Dark Moon

    This ceremony is an opportunity to plant seeds for the coming month. A chance to step out of mundane time and enter magical time, sacred time, in sacred space, like our great-great-great-grandmothers did eons ago—honoring the moon in her dark, mysterious phase.

  • Full Moon

    We align at this auspicious moment to re-member the ancient practices long forgotten. It is an opportunity for "illumination" to feed and nurture our souls monthly by connecting to the Great Mother, the Divine Feminine—to re-establish that rhythm with the moon.

  • Live Online Gathering

    Once a month, at the end of the cycle, we come together for a live gathering that supports personal growth—an opportunity to meet, discuss, share and process our experiences face-to-face, a chance to benefit from the wisdom of other women.

Leslie Zehr

Leslie Zehr is a mystic, sacred arts teacher, workshop leader, mentor, and author, who, for more than 30 years, has supported women to reconnect to the Divine Feminine within through the mysteries of ancient Egypt. Born in Peru and educated in the United States, Leslie followed a calling to "return" to Egypt in 1986 to learn about and experience the ancient mysteries. In 2002, after an initiation experience at Dendera Temple in Luxor, she received and developed the Universal Dancer, a simple but profound method of Sacred Dance that works with sacred geometry, primordial energies, waves, and the chakras to unlock intuition, vitality, and creativity. A trained hypnotherapist, reiki master, astrologer, aromatherapist, and homeopath, Leslie is the author of two books –The Alchemy of Dance: Sacred Dance as a Path to the Universal Dancer, which has been translated into Spanish; and The Al-chemia Remedies: Vibrational Essences from Egyptian Flowers and Sacred Sites – as well as a CD entitled "Navel Portal Activation and Guided Visualizations." In Cairo, Leslie founded and ran The Centre for Health and Well-being, which later became The Centre for Sacred Arts, a modern-day temple for learning and creativity honoring the Goddess Hat-Hor. Her lectures and workshops in Sacred Dance and the Al-chemia Remedies have taken her from Cairo, ancient Egyptian temples, and archaeological sites along the Nile River to studios and centers in New York, Maine, Maryland, Arizona, Washington, and Puerto Rico.

$20/Month or $200/Year (2 months free)

Includes access to both live events as well as the video library and resource center

This February ceremony was simply amazing! Having the privilege of Leslie’s guidance and wisdom even in an on-line classroom is always extraordinary. But in my opinion it’s her unique insight and the focus on the very essence of the time and moment we’re in now that add such richness to our individual spiritual paths.
