What we're about

Do you want to feel more peaceful and joyous? - Less Sad, Weary or Stressed?


REGULAR SACRED DANCE & WALKING MEDITATION SESSIONS in Cambridge & occasional events elsewhere in East Anglia and London.


Rhythmic drumming, especially when accompanied by chanting and movement, has the power to calm, centre, lift depression, release anger and stress emotions, boost the immune system, enhance health and stress-resistance. We provide drums and rattles on free loan or there is an option to make your own.

Since the beginning of time, communities have come together in a circle to dance, sing, share eternal wisdom, join hearts and express the irrepressible divine nature of the human spirit. Beginners welcome! Full instruction given. No partner required. You can be from any religion, spiritual path - or none!

We dance simple steps and movements (including sacred hand gestures called "mudras") which symbolise sacred wisdom and divine-connection themes. The movements promote health and wellbeing because they energise and balance the body energy centres (chakras) and engage heart, mind, body, soul and emotions in a holistic synergy.

As we dance we repeatedly chant brief sacred, or other wise, healing or inspirational, "Mantras". These mantric phrases come from a range of languages and sacred traditions or moving, inspiring poems. Apart from the wisdom, love and uplifting spirit contained in these phrases, the vibrations of their sounds have the capacity to resonate in particular areas of our energy system - potentially clearing energy blocks and bring energy to "deadened" areas of our energy system, physical and emotional body.

The overall effect of the dances and chants is to promote relaxation, clear negativity, relieve depression or anxiety, and uplift mood.
