Dances of Universal Peace
The Dances of Universal Peace are simple dances set to the music we create with our own voices inspired by all of the world’s religious traditions. By singing and praying in the spirit of the many spiritual traditions of the world we can help bring healing to the cultural divisions that have been for centuries driving our world to war in the name of “religion.” The Dances of Universal Peace are a spiritual practice that brings us in touch with our sacred selves in an environment that allows us to honor the sacredness in each other. When we dance face to face, we are not just dancing with the person in front of us, but also with the divine spirit that is manifested through that person.
Ecstatic Dance is barefoot dance movement, where we let our inner children play, move, or be in stillness. There are no specific performers or audience, there is just us moving however we want to move. It is an invitation to listen within. This kind of dance doesn't require any prior experience, or memorizing any footsteps, or being particularly athletic. Anyone can do it! We discourage conversations on the dance floor to encourage listening within and following how your heart longs to dance, play, and explore. Some folks like to dance with others, and some stick to themselves. We support you doing whatever feels most alive for you, and if you are wanting to step out of a dance, or not engage with someone in a dance, bowing with prayer hands means "Thank you, I am done dancing with you now", or "No thank you I do not want to dance with you."

Social Healing Workshops
In addition to dance, art, energy healing, vocal awakening, creative writing, and yoga workshops, we are planning some gender specific workshops for men, women, non-binary folks, members of the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC community. We take the idea of 'healing' beyond healing individuals, but also healing social divisions as well, and are interested in creating a safe and inclusive space.
Lunarina Temple is a sanctuary for womxn to gather and journey through the stories of their cycles to claim the power of their womanhood. We curated a selection of workshops encompassing physical, emotional, sexual and spiritual needs. Our mission is to help womxn to live in sync with the natural rhythms of their bodies, their communities and the planet. We gather together to help each other to connect deeply to our hearts, our wombs and the wisdom they hold. Traditionally this has been done in circles. Moon circles, Red Tents, song circles, dance circles...women have been circling for thousands of years, sharing, creating, connecting and empowering each other. In Lunarina Temple, we will explore kundalini yoga designed specifically for women, womb reiki and womb massage, flower mandala creation, tantric embodiment techniques, pelvic floor exercises, shamanic journeys, voice activations, hormonal health education, cycle charting and much more. Come to be witnessed, celebrated and empowered to carry your light into the world. Heart-to-heart, womb-to womb, we are building a more compassionate world.
