A Message from Hannah
January 02, 2018
Welcome to the Scheherazade School of Dance & Sacred Movement!
Are you hungry to explore the relationship between dance, spirituality and healing? If you’re like me and many of my clients who are on a spiritual journey, you have discovered the incredible power of dance and its ability to touch something deep within your soul. In the 20 years I have been studying, embodying and teaching various traditions of dance, I discovered that there is indeed a very powerful coding embedded in dance that come from an ancient lineage of embodied wisdom with the power to both heal and transform.
I have found that each dance imparts a unique sensation, nuance, and character, that goes much deeper than choreography and costumes. Stepping into each one is like wearing the precious sacred garment of a culture, a tradition emanating from a particular landscape and rich history of its people, with its own spiritual legacy that feeds into the larger wisdom stream. And like precious garments threaded together with love and unique intention, each dance allows you to try on and reintegrate an aspect of yourself that perhaps has been lost or in hiding. The spiritual exploration of dance has allowed me to reclaim aspects of myself, especially authentic expressions of femininity that had been scattered, lost, or disowned, deepening my connection to my deeper wisdom as well as all of humanity. And now I want to help you through this powerful journey.
After spending decades distilling the embodied wisdom of various dance traditions, I have found how deeply connected they are to the Divine Feminine, and how they can serve as a sacred practice, activating the subtle energies of the body. Dance can become a portal through which we can pass, transmuting heavier energies so they may be released, reminding us that we are all a spark of the Divine, made in her image, and our natural state is brimming with joy, love, and sensuality.
If you want to begin the process of opening this powerful portal, I invite you to download the guided meditation “Scheherazade’s Dance Your Healing Movement Meditation”, which will start the journey to transform your spiritual path into a beautiful sacred dance of awakening.
Thank you for taking this time to be with me and explore these ideas within yourself. May your light dance brightly.
