Egyptian Trance Dancing
Limited Capacity seats available

This workshop, based on the instructor’s book, Trance Dancing with the Jinn (published by Llewellyn), is a practical overview of traditional Middle Eastern trance dance rituals - Islamic zikr, Sufi whirling and the shamanic zar. This 90 minute class includes history, the science behind what causes trance, a description of Middle Eastern spirits (the Jinn), the music used to call these entities and a ritual to experience them first hand. Come learn Middle Eastern trance dancing from a dancer with over 40 years of performance and teaching experience. PLEASE DO NOT EAT FOR AT LEAST 90 MINUTES BEFORE THE WORKSHOP. Trance dancing can cause nausea on a full stomach. 

 The Zar
     For centuries women in Africa and the Middle East have used trance dancing to cure physical and mental ailments. Followers of the Zar cult believe their illnesses are caused by "red spirits" – a subspecies of Jinn called the Zar - who use human bodies as hosts. These spirits cause sickness to draw attention to their needs, which must be satisfied before a host can be cured. Dance-induced trances enable humans to communicate with their possessors to discover what the spirits want.

Trance Dancing    
     Dance therapy has been gaining notoriety for forty years, yet the practice is ancient, perhaps as old as language. Humans have been connecting with the spirit world through dance-induced trances since the dawn of time. Mammoth bone flutes and scapula drums are among man’s oldest artistic artifacts. And many cultures throughout Africa still use their ancestral techniques - for cures, inspiration and divine intervention. The movements are easily learned and extremely effective, often enabling experienced pagans to connect with spirit during their first ritual. I have taught these techniques in Europe, Egypt and the USA (Pantheacon and Lily Dale among other gatherings) and have found that for those with an open mind who enjoy movement and/or percussion it is an excellent communication facilitator.
