Workshop offering in the 2014 Nouveau Devadasi™ Fusion Temple Dance Festival which runs October 23-26, 2014

Learn graceful sacred dances, meditative breathing techniques, and whirling practices inspired by ancient Persian and Zoroastrian mythology as well as ancient sacred rituals that originate from the Silk Road and the Altai Mountains. Explore these dances and whirling with beautiful sacred poetry and music that encourages connection with your mind, body, center, and the earth.
