This Winter Solstice on 12/21 is particularly special
Not only the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, it is also
the rare Saturn and Jupiter's Great Conjunction, signaling an energetic cue
of lasting change...
A change including to
Surrender the old and commit to who you wish to be
whatever the spark is within you
that calls you to BE your brightest
Take time to slow down, reflect and honor it
There is a great strength in surrendering.
We ponder and process, how to BE in all of THIS...
by dancing together and healing together.
This Dance Alchemy© was about surrendering to becoming an access to something greater.
How do we find lightness in the midst of such a dark time....
Once you make a commitment, how do you sustain it over time without making yourself wrong, beating yourself up, or going crazy?....
This summer, LÎLA Founder Kristen Mangione collaborated with Ripple Effect Artists in this Dance on Camera project "Arise". "Arise" was sparked by the idea of rekindling hope both in one's personal journey and the collective healing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Initiated by Ripple Effect Artists' Jessica Jennings, it includes a cast of over 30 dancers and actors worldwide.
