About the Event

In rural Zimbabwe dance is for prayer, and prayer is for healng and empowerment of the whole community, seen and unseen.  These traditions know that our alignment with truth, and a calling of that truth into being through prayer is one of the most powerful, healthy and sensible ways to respond to life's challenges.  These dances know how to root us deep, lift us up and return us to a place of gratitude and vitality from where we can meet life with open hearts and aligned spirits.

In this 6 week we'll welcome the sweet magic of mbira and the power of the drum into our homes, give our bodies time to land, explore some of the techniques, dances, songs and rhtyhms of the Shona tradition and open a space to dance our prayers in honour of this life.

These sessions will be supported with live music from Kennedy Chinyere and special guests

With support from the National Lottery, we are able to offer some highly subsidised places on this course.  Your generosity in paying what you can afford is greatly appreciated.

There are a few places available on a donations basis if your finances have got really tricky.
