Dancing Down the Moon is an ancient practice done to invoke the energy of the moon. 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 waking 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 the time when women would take the time to gathered together to honor each other, nature and our cycles.

Leslie has been holding women’s circles and counseling women for more than 28 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—a haven where women can to 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 place, a moment out of time, where women can recharge, be nurtured and be in-spired in alignment with the cycles of the moon.

Technology allows us to connect with other women remotely, in spirit. It allows us to step out of our limited surroundings and interact with others—through space. Women from all over the world will be coming together 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 as well as a chance to 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 important 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 recorded ceremonies on the dark and full moons that can be done in the privacy of your own home, your sacred space. In addition there is one live gathering towards the end of the cycle where all the women in the community can come together to discuss and process the months 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 own illumination and to honor the moon in all her phases.

    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.

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.

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.
