Whirling with Mark Wagner
£10 | Saturday 19:45 – 21:00 | BODY
A rare chance to experience directly the ancient mystical practice of Whirling Dervish dancing. Devised by the Sufis as a ceremonial and devotional trance-dance, this powerful movement affects us on all levels of mind, body and soul, and has powerful therapeutic and euphoric effects.
Whirling is a potent form of inner Alchemy that helps realign our energy flows. There will be a short introduction to Whirling and the physical / metaphysical effects of spinning, followed by a whirling session. All levels are welcome and participants will be encouraged to whirl at their own pace and in their own instinctive style.
From the macro to the micro everything spins relative to everything else. We will simply join in the dance.
