Faces of the Goddess
Welcome to the “Faces of the Goddess” dance series, where embodiment of the feminine divine through powerful Goddess archetypes are expressed through an infusion of Bellydance and Indian dance. Explore phrases and gestures rich in ancient Indian wisdom, layered with stylized and soulful bellydance movements to ignite a more powerful, transformative experience. These symbolic movements are skillfully blended together with a clear intention, engaging body, mind and soul, to create more balance in our lives.
In each series we honor different incarnations of divine feminine energy, or Shakti, in the forms of Goddesses Durga, Lakshmi, and Saraswati. By "tuning in" to their specific energy frequency, each focuses on a particular intention the Goddess represents. We take time to explore each movement and meaning deeply, in a modern approach with choreography set to exciting trap beats, world rhythms and cross-cultural music.
The program inspires growth, renewal and transformation while learning dance vocabulary, the significance of each gesture & posture, along with the deeper meanings behind them in a dynamic fusion of Indian-Bellydance. We invoke Goddess Durga for strength and to cleanse negativities. We call upon Goddess Lakshmi for material wealth, love and abundance, and we pursue our inner power of creativity and true spiritual understanding with the help of Goddess Saraswati.
Each Goddess series can be taken individually, or as three phases of evolution in a program to help us rid ourselves of blocked areas in our lives, cleansing our mind, body & soul to cultivate a positive attitude and virtues for the future.
The first phase begins with Goddess Durga. She is the warrior goddess of strength, compassion, and protection who offers courage and refuge. Her powerful spirit cleanses, shifts, uproots, and transforms. Durga gives us the insight needed to break down patterns of fear, doubts, hesitations and worries.
Goddess Lakshmi represents beauty, nourishment and abundance. Her generous spirit brings material and spiritual gains, wealth, passion, and harmonious relationships to nourish our souls and nurture within.
Saraswati is the Goddess of wisdom, learning, and the arts. She governs knowledge, creativity, and the ability to experience and understand the more subtle and spiritual aspects of life.
Combined, the 3 Goddesses form TriDevi, or the triple goddess, bringing wholeness and renewal with their transformational offerings inspiring physical, mental, and spiritual growth.
